The A's telecast last night was DY-NO-MITE!
I am guessing most of you didn't catch the A's - Pirates game last night. It's a shame, because while the game itself wasn't exactly suspenseful, the look and feel of the game was, let's face it, OUT OF SIGHT!
It was turn back the clock to the 1970s night in Oakland. And the Pirates and the A's both would love turn it back to that decade when (and brace yourself young fans, this is going to sound strange) BOTH teams were powerhouses and won multiple division titles and World Series Championships.
(Sounds strange now, doesn't it?)
The A's were decked out in their classic yellow bottoms and yellow tops from the 70s glory days.
Personally I preferred the green tops to the yellow tops but it doesn't matter.
They LOOKED like champs again!
And like it was in the 1970s, the manager and coaches wore the white hats.
Bob Geren might not be a Hall of Fame manager, but for at least a day he LOOKED like Dick Williams!
(Would it have KILLED Bob Geren to wear the correct warm up jacket?)
But the A's looked awesome. How about the other team?
