  1. Mickey Mantle: @370’ it struck 3’ from the roof of Yankee Stadium, 118’ above the ground. I saw the game on television-was against the Washington Senators. (Pedro Ramos?) The next day, papers guessed it would have topped 550’ if it had left the stadium.
  2. Thanks, Cossacks. This was from 1960. I’m 75 and saw Mantle hit two home runs on opening day of ‘56 at D. C.’s Griffith stadium. He and Mays are two of the greatest of all time. Look at Mantle’s forearms: huge.
  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/06/16/burlesques-blaze-starr-who-put-the-tease-in-strip-dies-at-83/ is an outstanding article that tells another side of her.
  4. Blaze lived up to her billing-she picked innocent, scared uncomfortable (but she knew they were horny) boys. One side of the stage was to powder a boob (which she pushed in your face while the audience cheered. On the other side she handed a powder puff to me and had me walk to the edge of the stage. Hundred of whoops, I was scared and she knew it. She strolled to the edge and crouched down with her knees (on the stage), almost touching my face. She beckoned me to lean closer and spread her legs offering the inside of her thigh for my powder puff. When I hesitate she stepped forward crushing my face into her crotch where she slowly ground my nose and mouth against her g string. The audience was going nuts! She had perfume and powder on her g string-My lips had powder on them. My lips! Blaze Starr’s powder from her thighs and ….? Blazer Starr had spoiled me for life! I thought about that visit for months. I even bought the same powder and perfume just in case I could find a date to relive that night. (Nobody believed me in home room.) Part of the pleasure is that she really enjoyed the erotic teasing. She had control and knew that she could almost corrupt a boy for life. I’ve never been a boob man. Now if I had sat on the other side of the stage…..
  5. I am 75 years old. The day I turned 16, in my mother’s car, I drove from the DC suburbs (Silver Spring, MD) to the Gayety theatre in downtown Baltimore. In a rain storm. I looked older than my age and wasn’t carded-they let me in to one of America’s premier burlesque houses. Where the strippers also took everything off. I sat in the front row. Sixteen years old. Blaze Starr (today, a legend) was the headliner. Part of her act was to find someone young and “innocent” in the first row and really work them over. A hundred or more men crammed around them hooted and whistled her on. All, to bring out the voyeur and steal the innocence of a teenager fool enough to sit in the front row. She picked me. Tonight I went on High School Football America’s website. Looking for their top 25. Instead there is a list of numerous schools in each state and the tease to come back. By the weekend you will see everything. I thought of Blaze Starr when I read their tease. At least she powdered her thighs….
  6. I was born in D. C. and have lived in the city or suburbs here for 75 years. In large part because of Snyder I don’t know of a single person that cares or follows whatever they call themselves today. The Lerners and Nationals may today, be as bad.
  7. He’s actually ranked #3 in the U. S. at RB by one service. And a 4.3 40 that was laser timed. He’ll be a jr-class of ‘24. An interesting year in the WCAC.
  8. So, nobody follows DeMatha anymore. Not one word about this tournement or the team.
  9. Anybody have any info on it? Who they beat?
  10. Fascinating thread. Perhaps because I once lost 142 lbs. on a diet clothes became an obsession for me. Then factor in my 100+ trips to Europe for business and an ability to buy better clothing. I also travelled everywhere which allowed me to visit factories and outlets. I once drove 200+ miles East from Rome to Brioni’s only outlet in the world. ( And could only find a bathrobe that fit me. Brioni makes $5 to $10,000 suits. And really good bathrobes!). I mentioned Testoni earlier in this thread. These are, literally, mostly handmade shoes which now sell for $800-1,000+. But their factory is in Bologna and locally they are a third to half of this price. I have a half dozen pairs dating to the ‘90’s and they are the best shoe I have ever worn. They will also outlast me. Brioni, Kiton, some Zegna (only that which is made in Biella, Italy) are suits and sport coats to be buried in. Stefano Ricchi for both ties and shirts. Or Paris’ Charvet where their ties were E 55 in the late ‘90’s and now $200-250+ in America. Stefano Ricchi is double that. Saville Row is a destination, too, but I prefer the Italian. FWIW in the ‘80’s I first visited Hickey Freeman in Rochester (they had a “room” where Hickey suits were a third of the public cost) in the early ‘80’s. Also Hathaway in Maine, Troy Guild (America’s best shirt) near Lake George and more. (Respect to Oxxford suits…) Now, I am 75 years old, retired and have gained 40 pounds. I can no longer fit into most of my closet. (But Brooks Brothers makes the best sweat pants and Orvis for Knit shirts). My one Brioni suit looks really good on it’s hanger….. If you really want the absolute best this is it. Just don’t outgrow it as you get older. PS I should also mention the Prada factory and an extraordinary outlet mall (Gucci. Loro Piano-world’s finest cashmere) south of Florence. Bus loads of tourists used to visit both. Now, so much of this is no longer sewn/made in the country where the reputation was made. And, if you go in late January it may be a third to a quarter of the American price.
  11. Respect to the Irene on Willard Avenue where many from GEICO live. ps: in 1963 while still in high school for the summer I helped build the Willoughby apartments on Willard. Across the street was GEICO. DeMatha and Morgan Wootten were number one in America then. There was no IMG or Montrose. Sorry but what a helluva new direction for GEICO. Montrose and IMG have nothing to do with Willard avenue and GEICO’s history.
  12. Could have been an intrasquad game for all that it mattered. I turned ESPN off after two minutes. Half full stands, no spectator passion. I thought about Indiana state playoffs, WCAC playoffs, Mater Dei and on and on. Now this. With respect to Willard avenue in Chevy Chase (Geico’s home dating to the ‘60’s) I will never buy a Geico product. They are not supporting high school ball. There is much to be said for Booeymonger’s (a great carry out a block away) and nothing for GEICO.
