Twenty Years Ago Today

 Kirk Gibson homered his way into the hearts of Dodger fans forever...

The Dodgers could sure use some of that mojo tonight. It still gives me chills!

Here's Gibby talking about that evening....

I remember that night too. When Gibson hit that home run, a girl I had a crush on was so estatic she jumped into my armes and nearly strangled me with a bone-crushing hug and kiss. Hey, it was great at the time.

Dagnabbit! I've been clicking her every day! How did I miss this post?????

I remember that day so well. The look on poor old Dennis Eckersley's face was priceless! We were visiting some friends in LA and were down on our Bums' chances until that moment.

And later, my Mom said, "He HAD do hit a home run, it's the only way he could have gotten to first base."
