Slides, Like Socks….

Dec 18

In In The Field, Memories at 10:55am

Here’s a handy thing about blogging. I wrote about Bo Jackson last week, and mentioned a bunch of our original material from that long ago take seemed to have vanished. I likened chromes to being like socks that sometimes just don’t make it back into the drawer. I talked about getting into a batting cage with him and feeling like a decoy duck at a carnival shooting gallery, but we had no slide from that encounter.

Lo and behold, our intrepid studio manager Lynn, contacted SI, just to check, and somehow a bunch of these images had gotten stuck in one of their drawers, inadvertently. Years had passed. Never thought about it. Got ’em back. Happy about that. More tk…

Sneaky things, those slides. I wonder if SI could find some that I have missing? Could Lynn ask pls?

Pretty cool. I’m looking forward to your holiday reflection on years past and the hundredths of seconds that define eras. The one you did a couple of years ago about your niece I think growing up, was a classic read. If you and the camera ever get divorced, the writer’s pen is single I hear.

Best wishes,

Would you still get in the cage with Bo or would you now use a remote setup? That looks a little scary. Bo looked good in blue, signed a Royals fan

Bo Jackson – now there’s a blast from the past! It’s funny, he made a name for himself in the UK even though none of us ever saw him at work!
We were just told of this mystical double-sporting genius and were simply told he was the greatest all-round sportsman any of us had ever heard of!
