This CAN'T be possible...............

#5 (George Brett), the ones so many girls in the KC area (including me) had a crush on while growing up is 60 years old today.

Please tell me this is not true.

BTW I am less than 4 months younger than his wife so I guess I was not too young for him after all.

When I was just a little guy in grade school the local radio station owner got Brett to come to town for an autograph signing session. All I remember is standing in line then handing him a baseball and he signed it.
Dad, however, remembers him loudly bitching about having to be in this little shit hole town and how beneath him it all was. Dad later told me he completely lost any respect he had for George that day.

Leslie is really nice worked with them through a friend on a couple of occasions. She really rules the roost though. Got some baseballs and royals bags from them they were gonna toss. He's a OK dude away from people, understandable when he gets around douches like Prison Cumcatcher he has a different viewpoint.

Their new house is cool but liked the old one better personally.

Here's a story. When George went into the Baseball HOF, I made the pilgrimage to Cooperstown to see his induction (1999 I think). Anyway, this was in August, the ceremony was held in a public park in Cooperstown. Probably 20 or 30 thousand people. Like a big Woodstock. I was probably 500 yards from the stage. George looked like a speck, like a little ant, waaaaaaay across this big park meadow. I could hear him on the loudspeakers. So I travel 1500 miles to see him, and I'm barely in the same area code.

A week later there's a pre-season game at Arrowhead. I'm in my seat in the front row, over the stairs where the players come up onto the field. During pre-game, who pops up the stairs but none other than.... George Brett. I called to him, and he turned around and came over. I told him a week earlier I went all the way to Cooperstown to see him, and couldn't get near him, and now a week later I'm standing here talking to him in KC. He shook my hand and thanked me for making the trip. Just goes to show ya, you never know from week to week what's possible!

I know George gets a bad rap from time to time. There is plenty of stories out there where he has been a jerk.

However, I get the chance to see him a few times a year at work and he is a class act every single time. I know it's a different enviroment then fans rushing up to him and all that in the outside world.

Always willing to talk baseball and have a good time.

Neat. I was at the induction ceremony too, about the same distance as you. I think at the time that was the No. 1 or No. 2 largest induction crowd they had ever had (Nolan Ryan and Robin Yount making it a particularly popular class).

Happy Birthday George! He made watching baseball a lot more fun with many, many great memories. I doubt if I would ever remember Charlie Lau's name if it wasn't for George Brett.

The only time I ever saw him up close, I had the Mrs. and both young daughters in the car, looking for a parking spot well before the game.
I must have turned in front of him or something, because I saw his eyes get pretty big in that blue Porsche of his when he stopped abruptly. Actually, I think he was running late and in a huge hurry to get to the locker room.

And George gave one of the greatest speeches I can remember. If that didn't bring a tear to your eye there's something wrong. Nolan on the other hand was a dud.

I don't give a **** what anybody says, 5 to me is a down home funny guy that was particularly gifted at baseball. One of the joys of my childhood was the 85 series. God bless George Brett. And his soiled pantaloons.

I met Ryan once and he seemed very uncomfortable around people. He was polite, but not warm, and just seemed kind of embarrassed by all the attention.

P.S. I named my first-born son after him and Brett -- Ryan Brett.
