The LuLac Edition # 316, Sept. 30th, 2007
PHOTO INDEX: THE INDIANS, THE YANKEES, THE PHILLIES AND THE ROCKIES LOGO.
The regular baseball season ended today except for of course the sudden death game between Colorado and San Diego Monday. As a baseball fan, it is going to be a great post season. For my alligances, man am I confused. First and foremost, I'm an Indians fan but really respect the job Joe Torre and the Yankees did in their remarkable season. Left for dead in May, they battled back. Then there are those Phillies. Again, a team that scrapped its way to the top. I''ve always been hard on Charlie Manual especially when he was manager of the Tribe but this year he seemed to push the right buttons. Then there are the Rockies, two years ago Mrs. LuLac and I enjoyed a great game at that beautiful stadium with Jim Gibson and Bonnie Gilbert. One of my best friends since childhood David Dellarte is an Angels fan and one of my favorite people in the broadcast business, Sue Henry is a diehard Red Sox fan, not to mention my brother-in-law Owen Barnett. Plus a former radio buddy Pat Fadden is a true blue Phils fan. I love the Indians (a good friend Jim Petrie) is actually going to see the Tribe for the playoffs. And then there's this prediction from Yankee rookie and former SWB Yank Jaba Chamberlain:

During the Green Bay game today, I got a call asking me about Tom Leighton's performance as Mayor. The person calling asked about Paul Kanjorski, Lou Barletta and Steve Urban too. But the poll seemed to be focusing on Leighton and his tenure primarily as Wilkes Barre Mayor.
