You know that silly little game I always come back to where you string players' names together? You can do it with Gehrig's nickname:

The old iron hoss of the osage

Folks, this is great analysis.

I thought that was Seaver. Your two favorite players are a Met and a Yankee!

TRAITOR! :)

Heh.

Seaver is my all-time favorite Met and player that I actually saw, but I saw "Pride of the Yankees" even before that happened. :-)

It's interesting how a favorite player that you never saw can be from a team that's a rival of the team you root for. I'm the same way. I grew up a Reds' fan in the 1970s, and hated the Dodgers. Yet of players who played before I became a fan, my all-time favorite is Sandy Koufax...

It helped that my allegiance to any one team wasn't cemented yet. I have also never been a hater of the Yankees and always rooted for them to win the pennant, but ultimately lose to my Mets. Hasn't worked out that way, though. :-(

Lou Gehrig quit on his team. Unforgivable!
