It was sad to hear of former Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe Avezzano’s passing. He died while working out on a treadmill, and it reminded me of the 1989 death of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback coach Doug Scovil, who died after working out on a stationary bike, he was 62. I bet both men stayed in relatively good shape, but I wonder what their diets were like.
I had no idea that the bleacher seats (now removed) at The Ballpark and the foul poles were from the old Arlington Stadium.
Chicken Express, which started in my hometown, is sponsoring Snow Monkey Night at the Ballpark on July 1. I might just have to attend. The snow monkey reference is to a story Nolan Ryan told a local sports station about the time he actually served as a snow monkey ambassador in Texas. You can listen to Nolan tell the story here.
