Arnold having never been to New York (nor want to go there). I am not sure I would ever have a New York State of Mind But I do have a great New York memory and that as a child my Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Bronx Bombers in the 1960 World Series does that count?
Oh yes, Rick, it counts. That memory has a powerful connection to NY.
How time flies. It seems like only yesterday when Bill Mazeroski's home run flew over Yogi Berra's head and the Forbes Field ivy covered left field wall in the 7th game of the 1960 World Series. That broke virtually every New Yorker's heart, including this New Yorker's 8 year old heart that day.
From the agony of defeat for New Yorkers came the thrill of victory for Pennsylvanians and the other Puttsburgh Pirate fans. Now, I'm glad that you, Mark Boyce and all of the other Forum members who are Pirate fans were able to celebrate that day, and continue to have triumphant memories of that day. Arnold
