  1. Sounds like a great book. I definitely agree that Fenway needs to be replaced. It may be the oldest ballpark in the majors, but it’s also the most uncomfortable.

  2. 1967 was a great year for all of us sports fans at BU. The Terriers beat BC in the Beanpot and made their second straight trip to the NCAA Hockey Tournament. Spring brought the Red Sox and that amazing season. Dick Radatz was the closer and Yaz had that triple crown year. It is a wonder we graduated, as bleacher seats were in competition with classroom desks.

    Another great sports writer, Jack Falla BU 67 became a Terrier hockey fan and later a Sports Illustrated writer and author of the Wayne Gretzky story. Sounds like the Spirit of 67 carries on. I look forward to reading Tom’s new book. Tom, thanks for bringing back the memories. Brian Gilmour BU ’67

  3. Remember the clouds on the GIbley,s GIn sign.We opened it and saw many games form up there but you couldn’t get us near it during the World Series
    There must have been over 100 people on it.
