Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
Like many of grognards reading this sentence, I started playing wargames in the 1970's. I had done pretty well at chess and wanted something more challenging than RISK. I stumbled upon a brick and mortar wargame shop in Brockton, Mass and saw some guys playing S&T's Hannibal. I was hooked !

I was never into Panzer Blitz or Squad Leader, but started playing Axis and Allies in 1985 and have never turned back. I have a collection of over 400 wargames, both boxed and magazine.
Your favorite game(s):
Don't laugh-my favorite game is still "Fortress America". It was one of the first games with variable event cards and having the three Communist invaders compete against each other while whomping a weakened U.S.A.
You gotta watch "Red Dawn" while playing.

Other favorite games include the SCS series (particularly Yom Kippor and Drive on Paris), A Victory Lost, GMT's American Revolution series (especially Monmouth), Conflict/Compass's Yalu, Ted Racier's Reds ! and Clash of Giants I & II, S&T and Command strategic level games
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Price of Freedom, War in the Ice, Monmouth , Clash of Giants II Galacia FTF w/ friends
What game(s) have you played recently?
See above.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Two nights per week, about 4-6 hours per session.
How big is your game collection?
400 boxed games and magazine games
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)

Tex,
Even a Yankee fan has to admit that the Sox in 1967 had a special team. I agree, a healthy Tony C would have made a huge difference.

I don't know if they would have won the World Series, but they could have, and a contest between the Red Sox and the Cardinals would have been one for the ages.

When I was in grade school, maybe eighth grade, they put a chapter in our English book on Tony Conigliaro's beaning as an example of good, descriptive writing.

Poor Tony C., he deserved a much better career and a far better retirement.

Tex,
When I was in prep school, our athletic trainer was a former catcher in the Red Sox organization, who had his tuition to Pitt paid by the team when he blew out his knee in a game. Believe me, the day after Bucky #&*@ing Dent's homerun, when I had to take a class from Mike, was MOST memorable, and for all the wrong reasons.

I also remember Bill Buckner in 1986 about as well and mournfully as the fan of another team can. He should have been pulled for a defensive replacement.

Sanguillen was one of my favorite Pirates back in the day when they won the NL East every year. His enthusiasm was contagious, even if his English was unrecognizable. For some reason, until John Candelaria joined the team, the insisted on using him as an interpreter for interviews, when he needed one himself.

One rumor holds that he was the inspiration for Garrett Morris' Chico Escuelo character on Saturday Night Live.

Pirates are a sad team - the ones who gave us Maz, Clememnte, Stargell, Bob Oliver, Rennie Stennet, Al Oliver, Manny Sanguillen....
