Mike Flanagan's train of thought from 7:17 to 7:19 p.m. Aug. 21, 1988: "Aw, man, I love this game. Nothing like sitting in the dugout, chewing some seeds and combing my 'stache. Boss man thinks I'm lazy. Go figure. So I'm just hanging out, using the old mullet as a pillow. Big deal. This ain't my day to pitch. What, they want me hanging over the railing like some rook, pretending I'm interested in the Blue Jays? Huh, slim chance. Despite this sign behind me, this is barely a baseball club. There's too much blue in this dugout, and I prefer my birds in the orange-and-black variety. And I prefer my bird teams of another flock. That's right, until I get back south of the border, it's chill time, bro."
