Birthday Gifts From Mom - What's a Charleston Charlie?
Because you can find out anything with a simple Google search, I learned that the Charleston Charlies were a Triple-A team located in Charleston West Virginia from 1971 to 1983. They were the former Charleston Jets, then relocated to Maine in 1984 to become the Maine Guides. They now are known as the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Railriders. The Charlies were affiliated with the Pirates from 1971 to 1976; Astros from 1977 to 1979; Rangers in 1980 and the Indians from 1981 to 1983. Dave Parker and Tony LaRussa are a couple of many former stars who were Charleston Charlies.
Mom also picked up a Richmond Flying Squirrels shirt that looks really cool. If Richmond can hold onto the team, maybe I can wear it to a game.
I could write a whole series of blog posts about how awesome my mom is. While I'm certain that she would just Love for me to do that, I will just advise that one can simply click on the "mom" tag at the bottom of this post and let all of my past blogs do the talking for me. I will say that Mom always helped support my hobbies, ever since I was leaving coins lying on the floor at 8 years old. She always showed an interest in what all of us were doing, and many times, collected alongside us. She still buys packs of cards here and there. Someone should tell her, though, that they have not printed any cards showing shirtless David Lough.
Thanks for the birthday presents, Momma! I love them, and I love you!
