(A SEQUAL TO "8" CENTER FIELD IN NEW YORK, 1951-1957)
A Sports Story with recollections of dumb decisions made by sportswriters, players, managers, and even owners.
Dopey Bastid The sports discussions of three good buddies continue in the historical fiction Dopey Bastid. This sequel to “8” Center Field in New York, 1951-1957 humorously and authentically depicts dumb decisions of sportswriters, mangers, players and owners. You will scratch your head as you try to digest the blunders of so-called experts, while you laugh at loud and reflect on the meaning of friendship.
YES! I’m ready to order Dopey Bastid and read A Sports Story with recollections of dumb decisions made by sportswriters, players, managers, and even owners that will leave me scratching my head! I want to recount several incredibly Dumb Decisions in the World of Sports. From baseball to football to basketball, with sports betting identifications and beyond. I want the three main characters (Bob, Joey, & Lou) to take me on an historical sports journey. By reading Dopey Bastid, I have an opportunity to review the facts of dumb decisions such as:
- Ted Williams missed out on the MVP award during seasons in which he hit over .400 and twice won the triple crown!
- It was not Bill Mazeroski that cost the Yankees the 1960 World Series… It was Casey Stengel!
- Jim Brown, how could you retire after only NINE years?
- As a baseball team owner how could trade Tom Seaver in 1977?
- The “Miracle” in the Meadowlands was no miracle it was just dumb!
