Reading this, you get the sense that Bill Buckner is tired of telling the same damn story for past 23 years and tries to jazz it up. Here he is at a banquet the other night talking about Game 6:
“My first thought when it happened was, ‘Wow, I get to play in a
seventh game of a World Series. How cool is that? And my other thought
was how bad the people in Chicago must feel, Boston being here and
their team not.”
Of course he was speaking in Chicago, so he had to make it local.
