"We stopped by the Happy Joe's pizza place in Dubuque, Iowa,
this summer, and we noticed a big poster of a Mets pitcher from the 70's.
When the guy took my order, I looked closer at him
and it turned out to be Jim McAndrew, the member of the Amazin' Mets.
He was wearing his World Series ring, too.

"Pretty interesting to meet a guy who was a major leaguer
and on the same staff with Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver."

-- Jim Fraley, 2005 4
