The A's have a strange sense of nostalgia

The A's wore their turn back the clock jerseys and with the help of Mark Ellis's walk of homer, they beat the White Sox.

But it's those unis that make me scratch my head.

The A's were honoring the World Champions from 1929, back when they were in Philadelphia.

So I might be crazy here, there probably weren't a heck of a lot of people in Oakland nostalgic for that A's team.

That World Series ended on October 14, 1929 when Bing Miller singled home the World Series winning off of Cubs pitcher Pat Malone.

Hmmm... October 1929... did anything else happen that month?


The Stock Market crashed! All Hell broke loose and the Great Depression Started!

So basically the A's had us nostalgic for the start of the great depression!

I wonder if people got free admission if they showed up wearing a barrel. 


  1. Have you seen the attendance at A's games recently? It is DEPRESSING.

  2. The A's did have 500 tickets for .29 cents each for this game.
