What would you have named yourself, given the opportunity?

If I could have named myself, I would have chosen the name "Boner McGee". I just think it flows.

Would Boner McGee be a tribute to Willie McGee? I loved when the Cards and Mets played. Ozzie Smith with the backflip to start the season. Their Robbins egg blue uniforms. I think Iíd like to named Mookie. How can you not love a guy named Mookie?

How about Matt Gyver, ever thought of that one or were always you too busy of a fan studying how to consistently misspell McGyver?

Would Boner McGee be a tribute to Willie McGee? I loved when the Cards and Mets played. Ozzie Smith with the backflip to start the season. Their Robbins egg blue uniforms. I think Iíd like to named Mookie. How can you not love a guy named Mookie?

Mookie was the man! Love that era of MLB! And yes, it is to Willie McGee. I found an old 1988 stickerbook photo of him and put it on my egg board last year lol. I've got starting lineup figures of that guy. Also, when I was a kid, I played left field and batted right handed. When I found out that Willie was a switch hitting center fielder, I taught myself to hit left handed (to bat switch) and became the center fielder for 5 years. Not gonna lie, when he left the field for the last time, I had a tear! I have one of those blue jerseys too.

I stared at these cards a lot:


Side story: My dad took me to a lot of games as a kid, and Willie was my dude. I developed my own nickname for Willie - "the cat". Anyways, when they were saying the starting lineup, they said "Willie McGeeeeee" and I go "yes, the cat!" and my dad was all "the cat?" and I say "yeah he looks like a cat with that little mustache". And my dad laughed. But that was little me.

Obviously Mookie's greatest moment:

That time in baseball was special because it was during little league years and baseball card stores were also popping up everywhere. I was a pitcher in HS until I quit to skateboard full time but I love baseball and having a catch with your son is the best way to connect with him.

I didnít realize that the Cards lost in 85í and 87í. The series with the Royals must have been wild. George Brett is rad. I remember watching the Ďpine tarí game live with my dad. The old man couldnít believe they took his home run away.

I also get emotional over baseball. I canít watch Ken Burns documentary or look at old highlights w/o getting chills. Like watching Hokus Pokus.

1980s baseball was like pro wrestling. Hereís a little snippet for those who werenít watching at the time:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gbEHAsZxRYo

85 series was rough for me. I was SOOO into baseball at the time, I was crushed. 87 I was less crushed (due to skating probably lol). George Brett was a king! Huge fan. I love the history of baseball especially and any stuff from my childhood makes me want to cry when I watch it now? I guess its missing the innocence of that time. I just went to the Hall of Fame a month ago (2nd time). This time my son was into it (He was 4 last time and didn't get it). He's 7 and in his second year of legit baseball. I TRY not to get too hopeful about it, but he's a beast at hitting and throwing. I coach 1st base and outfield on the team (this is also the field I grew up playing at, so also cool). 3 times this season - he hit a ball so hard that the opposing players (6 and 7 year olds) just dived out of the way. Other teams coach even said to me "holy shit". He used to tap infield singles but the advice I gave him was "when that ball comes - hit it like you want to destroy it". And he started crushing.

I still have my baseball card collection from 1980-1992. I randomly buy a card of guys I like here and there, but buying the packs was soooo awesome. My b-day - I would get a BOX of packs. Was awesome. My prized cards as a kid were my Don Mattingly rookie cards.

Also, playing catch with my son is easily the best thing I've got going on besides skating.
