@KMT59 @deblue Well, this is the only head-to-head match up that will affect the playoffs.

@efb @Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo Actually, that's how it works (less the suspense). You get called into a room with a lie detector and answer questions. If you fail, you are escorted from the facility and given your walking papers.

@GinFizzBear There is a certain amount of truth to that. The Dodgers should win most of their games.

@Super Catfishin Turbo HD Remix  @Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) With all due respect, I'm not seeing anything that screams out to me on the issue.

Bear in mind, you're talking about a guy who was born in 1927. He grew up with very different attitudes than a lot of people today. 

Was he uncomfortable with it? Probably. Did he do anything about it? Based on the articles you provided, no. 

Tommy's son was gay, but Tommy still loved his son. 

As to Glenn Burke, there again is no indication that Tommy let Glenn's homosexuality influence his playing time. Burke just wasn't as good as the starters.

@The Tripp Cromer Experience @Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Super Catfishin Turbo HD Remix Like I said, he's nice to his friends and family.

Little background, my ex-sister-in-law's brother was a Japanese translator for the Dodgers. Apparently, Tommy took a liking to the dude and became a mentor of sorts to the guy. As a result, I got a few fringe benefits, such as meeting Tommy a couple times. From what I saw, he's a really nice guy. Just don't irritate him.

@Super Catfishin Turbo HD Remix  @Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) Tommy reminds me of my grandpa (mine was a few years older). The nicest guy to his grandkids, family, friends, et cetera. 


But, you piss him off? Holy crap. He'd drop f-bombs on people, get in their face, et cetera. According to one of my cousins, he went after some gangbanger (my grandparents live in Silver Lake) with a baseball bat because the guy was trying to break into his car. 


So, Tommy is awesome.

If the Niners lose (again) and the Giants lose (again), are we going to do suicide watch in SF?
