    It's not my concern what the Mick did in his own spare time. It's what he did on the field and in the clubhouse that concerns me.

    Great as Mantle was, I'm not sure he was even the greatest womanizing, drunken gambler in Yankee history.

    I think he had a lot of competition for that title, even among his contemporary teammates, let alone the whole history of the Yankees.

    I was just outlining some of the ways Hicks didn't measure up to the Mick even off the diamond.

    I do have to say though this is one of the most entertaining trollish thread since we lost the WinMethod.

    Sorry, never heard of this fellow. Who is he and where does he hang out?

    Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank the Academy for this honor. I'd like to thank both my father and mother who of course previously disowned me, I'd like to thank my latest wife of three weeks, and all the kids I've ever had in my lifetime. (Can't remember how many!) And a special thanks to the Site Owner of this esteemed message board complex for allowing me to post here, to the Moderators forced to put up with the hundreds of complaints about me, and all the round-the-clock technicians who have been hired since I joined here to handle the huge increase in bandwidth owing to the presence of the thousands of new "Guests" who have arrived here in droves and who follow my every written word!

    Agreed.

    How long before the peanut gallery starts to turn on each other for responding in this thread?

    Yep, peanut gallery which I remembered from Buffalo Bob and the "Howdy Doody Show."

    But I come to find out it first really meant "cheap seats" and further, it referred to "less educated persons." Here:

    The phrase comes from nineteenth-century vaudeville theatres and refers to the cheap seats at the back of the theatre or in the upper balcony. It came to be applied to other venues as well, referring to the section where less-educated or less-seriously-interested patrons sat. The "peanut" comes from the popularity of that cheap snack in those sections, and the possibility that patrons might throw peanuts at the stage if displeased.
    In the mid-twentieth century, the "Howdy Doody Show" associated "peanut gallery" specifically with children.


    Hmmm, "If the peanut fits......."

    I use "peanut gallery", even though some feel it's insulting. I think of them more as being hecklers and tossing peanuts.

    The day JL25and3 stops using it is the day I'll stop using it.

    I am offended anyone is offended by the term "Peanut Gallery".

    Gee, I wouldn't know. I was flying over Southern Europe at that time and musta missed all the excitement. What exactly happened? Why does this thread have so much activity? And what exactly makes it "nuts" in your professional opinion?

    -That's when the thread was started.
    -Because people can't look away from train wrecks.

    You appear to be "fixated" on train wrecks. Anything in your early life whilst growing up that may have caused this phenomenon?

    I was grounded for a month the summer I was 8 years old for crossing Main Street and walking along the train tracks. That's the only thing I can think of.

    This did make me think of a story though. Semi-related?

    A few years back I was thinking about leaving my position and looking for something a little closer to home. I was grooming my assistant to learn my duties. I didn't want to play my hand and let everyone know I was possibly moving on. So every time I taught my assistant something new, I prefaced it by saying I was doing so in case I got hit by a bus.

    After a few weeks of saying this, she tells me that her aunt was hit by a bus and was killed.

    The next time I went to teach her something, I asked if anyone she knew ever fell off a ledge.

    Ok JD, the situation is now crystal clear! Yes, both circumstances are related and both contribute to this fixation you have on "train wrecks" and indeed upon "accidents and tragedies."

    I hope you are now feeling better having had the opportunity to relate these upsetting events of the past. Sometimes, simply poring through previous issues (long buried) and speaking or writing of them can do wonders for you. Good job!
