Still Missing The Captain, Thurman Munson, 32 Years Later

You can tell who are the die-hard, long-time Yankees fans by mentioning one name, Thurman Munson.  He was the subject of one of my first blog posts, a permanent fixture of the All About Cards logo and a good luck charm when busting boxes of Baseball Cards.

But others start to show there Pinstripe Pride on this day.  For example, you should check out the great write up over at From The Cheap Seats which should give you an idea of what it was like to be a fan at that time.

If he were alive today, he would have been in his 64th year, twice the amount of time he was alive, and, most likely, a member of the Hall of Fame.
