Born Blue

by David Adler

I grew up with Garvey and Cey
And Russell and Lopes every day
.      Sutton on the hill
.      Lasorda so shrill
My heart lived off Stadium Way

    I seem to recall from that past
    Danny Ozark’s Phils were outclassed.
    But three decades of prayers
    Spawned this cat named Matt Stairs,
    Who croaked all those ghosts with one blast!

    Ah, the good old days when you had your choice of last place Philadelphia teams. Choose your league.

  3. David Adler wrote,

    What’s Dick Ruthven up to these days?
