FMJRA 2.0: Night Owls

— compiled by Wombat-socho I am embarrassed that I forgot (until now) to pimp Hans Schantz’ Based Book Sale. Everything’s 99 cents or free, and written by authors who don’t hate you and the principles you believe in! What a concept, right? Head on over and take a look at the hundreds of books on […]

FMJRA 2.0: Run Through The Jungle

— compiled by Wombat-socho This weekend I learned that this song wasn’t about Vietnam; nonetheless, after seventy years, that’s what most people associate it with.

Our […]

FMJRA 2.0: National Radio Waves – On The Wire

— compiled by Wombat-socho Another .500 week for the Senators; we took two out of three in Montreal, including a rare win for Jim Kaat, but were not so fortunate at the Mistake by the Lake, where we lost two out of three to the Tribe. The sole win in Cleveland was the seventh for […]

FMJRA 2.0: We Saw It, It Was Coming

— compiled by Wombat-socho Senators took two of three from the division-leading A’s at RFK and ten went on the road to Minnesota and got thumped in two games straight before Juan Marichal came in to shut down the Twins’ bats while the lads teed off on Sudden Sam McDowell for an 8-0 blowout in […]
