Sorry, wasn't a thing (or didn't exist) in the Dark Ages.

How old are you?  Wolski's has been there for 110 years.
And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? There's no reason for it – you've got to go sometime.    — Gerry O'Driscoll

Historians say the Dark Ages ended with the Renaissance, so Lenny is probably a lot older than any of us woulda guessed....

Back in the day the Brewers were known as, "Harvey's Wallbangers."  Although most of us were O's, Yankees, or Sox fans we spent a lot of time at The Aina Hey Sports Palace (the bleachers back then was essentially an open air bar) where the Brewers would win 12-9 or lose 15-12.

I had a Harvey's Wallbangers bumper sticker which ended up on my Nissan Bluebird which bombed around Misawa Japan.

Side note, I caught a home run by Kenny Singleton. When Singleton came out to right I got his attention and he noticed my Marquette tee shirt. Turns out he's Doc Rivers' cousin so he signed the ball for me top of the next inning.

Loved the Birds team from that era, Crash. Favorite player was Benny Ayala. A butcher with the glove but could hit coming out of a coma.

Nothing like sitting in the Upper Deck at Memorial with your fingers curled around a Natty Bo and watching the Robbies.

While the O's had a lot of big cannons in the lineup they won because of The Duke of Earl and all those arms.

Palmer, Cuellar, Dobson, McNally, Drabowsky, Phoebus, Alexander, Grant Jackson, Grimsley, Torrez, Dennis Martinez, Tippy Martinez, Flanagan,  Rudy May, McGregor, Drago, Stanhouse, Stoddard, Sammy Stewart, Steve Stone, Storm Davis, Boddicker, Schilling.

Amazing.

The whole AL East was incredible back in the late 70s and early 80s. I remember being frustrated as a Brewers fan because they were finally good after many years of sucking, but still missed the playoffs because the division was so deep. I looked back, and here's a sample:

In '78, the Yankees won with 100 wins, while the Sox, Brewers and Os stayed home with 99, 93 and 90 wins.

In '79, the Os won the division with 102 wins, so the Brewers and Sox stayed home with 95 and 91 wins, respectively.

In '80, Yankees won with 103. The Os stayed home with 100 wins. The Brewers would have been in the race in the other three divisions with a solid 86 wins, but finished 17 games back in the AL East.

I got my drivers' license in June of '78, so I spent many afternoons and evenings watching the Brewers teams battle it out with some other great teams.

The AL East was incredible back then. You are forgetting the Tigers who were also consistently winning and won the Series with a 104 win season in '84.

In both McCormick and Schroeder our floors were well represented by fans of all the AL East teams. Lots of great September arguments.

Not bad. Now if you want to really raise the bar, get Doc to sign your MU t shirt. Real value there.

I'm not familiar with that euphemism
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Kinda embarrassing that the whole euphemism thing didn't even occur to me until I read TAMU's reply.

But yeah...it does sound kinda, umm, euphemistic.
