The next Judy St*ffes?? damning excerpt: Officially, 3,000 miles separate San Francisco and Collar City. National League officials and the Giants have attempted to distance themselves further than that from the Collar City. Hey, who can blame them? I wouldn’t want to admit that I illegally moved — some historians say strong armed, others say blatantly stole — America’s Pastime from the home of Uncle Sam Wilson. What’s more un-American than that? [snip] The best the City of Troy can hope for is possibly the San Francisco Giants allowing the World Series trophy to be displayed in the Collar City for a few days. The Record has sent a letter to The Giants and the Major League Baseball Commissioner’s Office asking for such a request. Hey, if Major League Baseball can get artifacts from Texas to Albany International Airport and a subsequent drive to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown 16 hous after the final out, it can certainly send a trophy — which belongs in Troy — to the Collar City to be viewed for a few days.
