Retro- ’70s weekend!!
Break out your bell-bottoms, platform shoes, and polyester shirts. The ’70s are back in force this weekend, as the Dodgers and Reds are having a big series. Just like old times in the old NL West. And the Giants are fading out of contention. Just like old times in the old NL West. It’s a blast from the past. The Big Red Machine and the Big Blue Blob of Evil, back in the spotlight. The Reds haven’t won the World Series since Bush, Sr. was president; and the Dodgers haven’t won it all since Reagan.
Where have you gone, Joe Morgan? George Foster? Steve Garvey? Ron Cey? We know where Dusty Baker is. He’ll be right there in the ballpark, trying to get back to the World Series and win the big one as a manager. The opposing manager in that game is called Donnie Baseball. Seriously? His nickname is Donnie Baseball? We Giants fans know his true nickname. He is, and forever shall be, Donnie Two-Trips.
