Re: The turntable in your head

Cool!  The closest "brush with fame" we can report here was the time  one of us had a Courtney Cox - Bruce Springsteen moment, pulled up  on stage by the lead "singer" of the punk band Green Jello to shout  and dance with the band.  So was almost everyone else in the mosh pit,  though, so it's not l...

Re: Songs that you "misunderstood the lyrics to"

Hey Mike, thanks for grabbing the reins and starting this thread,  which as you mentioned in your opening was an idea mentioned  in this thread here:   https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/baseballgames/the-turntable-in-your-head-t259.html   Just to recap, you'd admitted there that you'd heard Rock the C...

Re: The turntable in your head

Hi again, Mike, thanks for the comments and reminiscences!   All great drummers you named there -- we've gotta add to that list  Gene Krupa, arguably the first rock n' roll drummer from before  there even was rock n' roll.  That guy deserves a "biopic," and  maybe he's too old now, but Hank Azaria w...

Re: Crank up the Victrola again

Fine selection, Mike -- the front office crew have all long been big fans of  "southern fried rock," and the sublime guitar work from .38 Special has made them  particular favourites here.  We're glad you could pick up how to play that tune, but  we've gotta say, much as that is a terrific song, tha...

Good grief, has it been slow and quiet in every room of the Forum lately...  is it the unpleasantly revamped  look of the Forum?  (Not our fault!  Curse you, Tapatalk!)  Is it just the annoying verbosity, once again, of your  Forum moderators?  Without any feedback from you Forum members, how can we...

Re: More from the Babe Ruth Fake Factory

Thanks, Mike, for the endorsement.   The facts we present, let alone our opinions, don't seem to be held in very high regard, however,  outside our own Forum.   The Mayonnaise Jar Babe finished Thursday evening.   $360.55 (but shipping was free!).   We think we recognize the second underbidder as a ...

More from the Babe Ruth Fake Factory

Hiya fellers!  Some veteran members of this Forum are familiar with the "Babe Ruth-endorsed" fake boardgames,  while others, and newcomers to this group, may not be -- so as background, we would direct you to the most  recent discussion of them, here:   https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/baseballgames/...

Hey, Mike -- certainly no apologies necessary on your part! Instead, our many thanks for the report and the photo show! Yeah, we kinda figured that was "behind-the scenes" / "before-the-show" set-up time -- if you'd waited 'til the event was in progress, you'd have had a hard time photographing much...

Hiya fellers! This one goes under the "non-baseball tabletop sports games" heading for this subforum. First off, if anyone here knows the title and/or publisher of the horse-racing boardgame shown below, chime in! That's what we were actually trying to help with, and thereby hangs a tale... :skeptic...

Re: 1914 ? Indoor Base Ball Game Popular Games Co.

Hi Ed, thanks for the follow-up on that sale! A good price for you, higher than we expected,
although we should have emphasized in our earlier reply that we wouldn't be too surprised
that the "name" factor might "surely add substantially to their collector appeal."
Evidently it did!
