Parc Jarry lives again for a day

Some of us oldtimers here remember the days when it seemed really cool to watch a baseball game being played in Canada. The Montreal Expos' old park (1969-1976), Parc Jarry was used again recently by former Expos to play a charity softball game.

I always thought that the pool beyond the outfield fence was much cooler than the one in Phoenix. Mainly because it was just a regular swimming pool that happened to be there instead of a money-making add-on to the park.

Can I work in an angle about a former Arizona pitcher too?

I'll put it in the preview for tomorrow's T&T match.

It told you once before, Bob, countries cannot have ampersands. It's Tribago.

What did you think of "Serbia, et al."?

I should have visited Parc Jarry when I was in Montreal last summer. Didn't think of it.

I did ride the elevator to the top of Olympic Stadium.

Too bad it was the first summer in decades that Montreal didn't have Major League Baseball.

I felt like Ziggy.

"Serbia et al" is perfect. Much better than Serbegro.

You don't hear too many people calling them S&M.
