Just Called Up From LA!

OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Just Called Up From LA!

Hi Guys,

I am the latest rookie to join the OAFC!!

You can thank Charlie Finley for leading me to the site. I have been desperately trying to find a copy of the famous "Mustache Gang" SI photo with COF in the middle of Reggie, Catfish, etc., so I entered "Charlie Finley" in my search engine and voila! So I figured any website that can boast one of the all-time great baseball photos has GOT to be first-class. :-)

Been an A's fan before the age of 10 and have been following the team through its various incarnations as the Mustache Gang, BillyBall, the Bash Brothers, and the Beane-y Boys. In fact I just finished reading Bruce Markusen's excellent book "A Baseball Dynasty" which I HIGHLY recommend to those who haven't read it yet.

Go A's...and to this day I still believe Mike Norris should've gotten the Cy Young Award instead of Steve Stone.

Welcome tomd,

We are all very proud of the A's legendary characters and players.

If you enjoy reading Bruce's writings, then you will like the fact he has a regular column which we regularly publish on this site. His latest was hot off the press and posted yesterday. Enjoy!

Hey tomd,

Sounds like you have seen as many seasons as I.

I hope to see you around the board.

Damn what I would give to have been around during those 70's teams. Welcome aboard the site! I've only been a fan since Mac's rookie year (then again I was only born in 79) and have enjoyed the ride as a A's fan through both the good and the bad. I don't post here as often as I should, but it's a great site and you should enjoy it.
