I sat in the upper deck at Forbes Field and saw "Big" Daddy, Bobby Layne, Dick Hoak, Buddy Dial and others. I'm 82 today and love all my Steeler memories.

We moved to Encino in 1968 and the late Lenard Dorfman trained for me. Won a couple at Santa Anita and Del Mar in the 60's and later

Happy Birthday Hoppy! You would have gotten along famously with my Dad (Allderdice High and 35-year Steelers & Pirates seat-holder) and my sister might've run into you as one of the Pirates bat-girls back in 60 - then we moved to Pasadena!

Take care of yourself and your family! Maybe see you out at Santa Anita sometime ;)

Happy birthday Hop!

If you have it in you maybe write a book about your Pittsburgh sports experiences-I'm sure it would be something incredible to read.

after MAZ'S HOME RUN, I WALKED OUT OF FORBES FIELD WITH INCHES OF NEWSPAPER COLLECTING ON MY FEET.I HAD TO WALK SEVERAL MILES TO DOWNTOWN TO THE HILTON WHERE I WORKED. the STREET CARS WERE ALL SHUT DOWN AS THE PAPERS COVERED THE TRACKS. STAYED THERE OVER NIGHT. NO WAY TO GET HOME TILL THE NEXT DAY.

ANYONE ELSE DO THIS??
