Subway Series? Not here you won’t. Let’s go back to my childhood . . .
50 years ago today, the Mets were one out away from a doubleheader sweep of the Cubs. Third baseman Rod Kanehl, a late-inning defensive replacement, mishandled what should have been the game-ending ground ball and—great suffering Santo—a Mets 4-1 victory became a 5-4 defeat. No outfield hijinks to speak of. Meanwhile, somewhere in Los Angeles, Gina Gershon is born. Among her distinguished filmography, she can be found in what is perhaps James McNew’s favorite movie of all time and Adam Kaplan’s favorite tv show, not to mention this policier edited by Ray Hubley.
