Greatest Memoirs

“My first memory was when I was a kid watching my dad play fast pitch softball in Jackson, Mi. He was a great pitcher for his team. Another memory that I have was my senior year of high school when our basketball team went 22-0 in 1975” (JB)

“It’s very difficult to say because there are so many.  I was the defensive coordinator of the famous 10-10 tie, in 1966 when Michigan State played Notre Dame.  I won a National Championship as a play and a coach at Michigan State.  I coached in two Super Bowls, winning one with the Baltimore Colts and losing the other with the Cincinnati Bengals.  I would say that any of those would be my greatest, besides losing the Super Bowl” (HB)

“Hands down it would be playing catch in my best friend Jeff’s backyard. He had the biggest backyard on our block so during the summer mostly all the kids in our neighborhood would meet there and play ball for hours on end every single day. We would pretend we were players in the major league. As we were playing we would also act like the radio announcers, narrating our “big league games” (SB)

“Watching Reggie Miller score 8 points in 9 seconds had to be the most heartbreaking thing that I can’t forget.  I was at the game and a huge Knicks fan so that moment still sticks in my head” (QC)

“In 1984 when the Tigers won the World Series.  We didn’t have tickets to the game but me and Annie and Debbie (my aunt and mom) went down to the city just to be part of it.  We were listening on the radio and when they won the whole city went crazy. People were running across the top of the car, banging on our windows, honking horns.  It was scary to the kids, but it was a special day” (TD)
