New old guy
Permalink  
 


Just joined.

Been playing S-O-M since I was 8. Hard to believ that was 50 years ago.

Play the C&D version. Love the old time teams.

Brings me back to a time that I prefer. Players seemed to play for the love of the game.

And the heroes seemed larger than today.

I played as a kid. Played as an adult, in several leagues in the 80's.

Had been away from it for years. I just ordered the 42 Old Timer teams game.

Can't wait for it to arrive and am looking forward to escaping into the game.

You folks seem to have a nice forum here and I hope to participate.

all the best

Glad to have you back in the SOM fold.

I had some time away, much like yours. I had given up playing back in the late 70's, though I bought the sets through '86. I rediscovered my love of the game around 2001, when I had young baseball-loving nephews to teach it to.

It's funny that they've moved on and I'm still playing.

Thank you Gents for the welcome!

seajaw--Although your nephews may move on (perfectly normal), you have planted the seeds
that may bring them back later in life. And that is a good thing!

And you keep playing and enjoying.....

Cheers

Thanks for the warm welcome, stargell8, stratfan70 Nitrous Oxide, seajaw and chip71bucs.
Happy to be here.
And I will share my fun with all once I get rolling.

I am hoping that new game I ordered arrives quickly.

Thanks nacster!
Sandy has been my hero since way back.
My favorite era is that Koufax/Drysdale Dodger era.
Was an LA Dodger fan while living in NJ surrounded by Yankee fans.
Koufax's 5 straight years of leading the NL in ERA was amazing!
Love that 1963 World Series...my older brother was a Yankee fan....
do I need to say more?
When it comes to pitchers, I'll take Sandy number 1 everytime.
But of course I also really appreciate Marichal, Gibson and Drysdale.

Well, it has been 8 days since I ordered and paid......
and I have not seen the game yet.
My luck for sure!

I called S-O-M this morning. Seems for some reason, the ordered was never shipped.
They will pull it and then ship it. I suppose I will see it ....
maybe, mid-week next week. Surely by next Friday.

I am chomping at the bit to play....and here I wait.

Oh well, could be worse.....I suppose....

 Don't forget, they are still in their busy season knocking out all the pre-orders.  Last time I ordered something this time of year I had to wait about 3 weeks, and I live only a few hours away from the company's headquarters.

That is the one nice thing about the comp game....you buy it, and it is instant access to the purchase.

nacster--yes I understand they are probably busy. But it does seem that the order got kinda forgotten about.
The woman on the phone told me it was a very good thing that I called. Seems the people in the warehouse
don't really like pulling the orders for the old time teams because they have to pull the teams individually then add them to the game.
Where other games they just have to grab a box.

I am not really upset with them, just disappointed---I had a day off today and had originally figured I'd be playing some games today.

Life is full of disappointments....I am used to it---lol.
