Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-19-2011

New York Times, October 19, 1911:

His mind unbalanced as a result of the feverish interest displayed in the outcome of the Giant-Athletic contract while watching the bulletin board returns here yesterday, Allen McGyre, 14 years old…disappeared from his home last night.
...

Shortly after the result of the eleventh inning was posted the boy left the bulletin board downcast, and later was found lying across a trolley track by E.H. Low, who took him home.

When Edgar Renteria ended the ‘97 World Series, I sighed, shrugged, and took out the trash.  I saw that coming a mile away.

After Scott Norwood’s missed field goal in Super Bowl XXV, though…yeah, I can see how the kid would want to be alone.

Today is also the 30th anniversary of Blue Monday.

Other events having their anniversary today include: Yadier Molina's big game, the Bloody Sock game, the walk-off walk, the A's lose Game Five of the Series in a stunning game-ending double play w/ the would-be tying run thrown out at the plate, and the A's trade Nellie Fox.
