This great book by Triumph starts out with an open and honest foreword by Rowdy Roddy Piper. He shed some light on the coconut smashing incident and it really gave the reader some great insight into Snucka’s relationship with the Rowdy one.
Mick Foley also talked about Snucka in glowing terms. Many wrestlers did but some did trash him as well.
Dawn Marie’s mention of Snucka is a story I was familiar with and was glad to see Jimmy give her the mention. She really cares about the man.
I remember the original Lynyrd Skynyrd vividly. We played their music at house parties and everywhere else. Tour manager, Ron Eckerman talks about how he became their tour manager and his stories about Ronnie Van Zant and company give the readers amazing inside access.
There is a great story about an exploding ketchup bottle in a diner that is absolutely hilarious.
I enjoyed reading about Skynyrd playing softball against Billy Graham’s team. Ronnie was a good player but most of the band wasn’t.
The words and phrases are spoken and written day after day, year after year - generally without any wonderment as to how they became part of the language. All have a history, a story. Now with the 2006 baseball season almost with us -some more language of baseball to savor, to enjoy. For those of you who liked Part I, Part II and wrote in to offer suggestions and ask for more - here is more - Part IV. As always, reactions and suggestions always welcome.
