    he was fun to watch.

    he even wrote a daily comic called scroogie(sp) way back about 20 years ago.[​IMG]

    Once asked whether he preferred to play on a grass field or an artificial surface, McGraw said, ``I don't know. I never smoked any AstroTurf.''

    Thanks for the Series win, Tug. That team couldn't have done it without you. [​IMG]

    Wow. Tug McGraw. Just saw it on the news. He was just at one of the final Veteran's Stadium games, was he not?

    One of my childhood heroes. [​IMG]

    I think he was in a lot of pain these past few years, fighting cancer. I'm glad that his pain has been eased.
