The day after the Giants were swept by the Marlins to end their 1997 post-season, I was standing in line at the Southwest Airlines gate at SFO to get the coveted plastic-card boarding pass, and who came up in line behind me but Rod Beck, on his way back to Phoenix with his wife and two daughters. I turned around and congratulated him on the season, and he was totally gracious. Said he could hardly wait to get out to Firebird Raceway and take the car for a spin. Then I saw him a couple months later, driving a covertable into a McDonald's drive-thru in Scottsdale. hahaha!
Like Aurilia said, the guy looked like he was 38 years old 10 years ago. He was the perfect fit for The 'Stick.


What a sad sad story :(. Hate to see people got out like that... By the way, when you write new blog posts, go over to BeTheRef.com and post a link to your story, and hopefully get a little extra traffic for your blog.
