I remember watching the WBZ-4 coverage of this event when I was 7 years old.
I saw a riot in Comiskey Park and a fire on the field. I asked my dad “What caused that explosion?”
He replied, “They blew up a lot of records.”
It almost seemed like a Non Sequitur. But being a second grader, I didn’t know what Non Sequitur meant, so I nodded my head thinking when I got older, I’d understand.
I’m 30 years older and the events of July 12, 1979 still don’t make a lick of sense.
As Dan Cronin, the brilliant Emmy winning writer for Conan O’Brien wrote to me “OK, we get it, you don’t like disco. Put down the f-ckin dynamite!”
When stupidity reaches this level, it almost comes full circle to genius.
