Under the subject line "Old habits die hard, I guess," my former GateHouse editor, Casey Laughman (who later met a similar fate at the hands of that fine company), couldn't resist needling me a little by e-mail:
"I can't believe I'm pointing this out, but Nolan Ryan was on the Miracle Mets in '69."
D'oh! Despite me blogging that Ryan, now the Rangers' GM, had never sniffed a World Series as a player, he was, in fact, a wild-throwing bit player on the Mets' first title team. Another nice catch by Casey!
Man, I'd better clean up my act. If I keep making mistakes like that, I could get fired from this lucrative gig!
