  15. The half-second during the bottom of the first inning on the last day of the 2007 season when we all thought that Ramon Castro’s line-out was a grand slam.
  16. Vince Coleman threw fire crackers at kids after a game; he thought he was an NFL running back or something.
  17. Vince Coleman’s firecracker fun was on the SAME DAY that Anthony Young lost his 27th straight game.  Awesome.
  18. Tom Seaver was in the dugout during the Mets 1986 Series win. The RED SOX’s dugout. Ouch.
