Great moments Headache!


One of my favorite memories came when I was just a kid! I grew up with 3 bros..... one of them is a die hard Dodgers Fan the other a die hard A's fan... (this was before I become a Braves fan at the age of 12 thanks to my other bro) So anyway... I sided with my bro who likes the Dogers...

So this comes from tthe 1988 World Series, Game one. The Dodgers were losing tot he A's 4-3 (I believe)...and Kirk Gibson who was hurt at the time comes up to pinch hit at the bottom of the 9th and hits the winning two run home run! Ahhh I was a kid but I remember because my bro's were such die hard fans and made a big old fuss about it! hehehe



My other fav memory is when the Braves finally won the Championship in 1995!!

I'll think of more later!
