Every once in a while I will get recognized and someone will say “you are the guy on the phone in Curse of the Bambino, right?”
This is referencing the wonderful HBO Documentary I was in and the story I told about Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, dialing the phone to rub the Red Sox win in the face of my uncle who is a big Mets fan.
My response is always “Yes, I told that story.”
But if you saw the special and remember the story, I was NOT the guy dialing the phone. That would be my brother Ted who dialed after each pitch every number except the last one.
So in truth my brother is “the guy on the phone” in The Curse of the Bambino.
And today is his birthday.
Happy birthday buddy. I promise to call today… and every number including the last one.
For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is my segments from the movie.
