#16 It’s Late in The Game


It’s Late in The Game. 40 years have come and gone. You might say that we’re in the 4th quarter of our lives. Who knows how many broken bones and shattered Dreams lie ahead. Who knows how many Championships? Who knows how many touchdowns? How many amazing tackles? How many blocks lie ahead? How many ties and overtime’s we will face? One thing we know for sure is that we were Blessed to exist in a Special Community during a Special Time. This can never be replicated or recreated. Only recalled. We can only reminisce about our Glory Days.

Around 10 years ago, David Barrack and his Family took David’s Father, Irving Barrack to New York City where Irv grew-up to attend a Yankees Game. They asked Irv “Who was a Baseball Star the last time that you watched the Yankees play in-person?” “Joe DiMaggio” was his answer.

“Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?”   One of the all time great music lyrics. Ladies and Gentlemen, this sums it all up for All of Our Story: “Where have you gone 1980 Magical Football Season?” 

It’s been an honor to share my perspective with all of my Old Friends. I’ve greatly appreciated your encouragement, patience and kind words as you have read online and replied. 

Now take time to blast Simon and Grafunkel and ask the Question: “Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?” “Where have you gone 1980 Magical Football Season?”
