Saw an old aerial photo of Comiskey Park today, circa 1959 World Series time frame. No Dan Ryan Expressway running behind the structure (Expressway wasn't built until '61) and the park still had the brick facade outside.

Why did Bill Veeck whitewash the exterior, covering up that old brickwork? I love Veeck but ... that was not a good move on his part. My guess is he thought a coat of white paint might spruce the old place up a bit. It didn't!!

The perils of live television:

"“Fox & Friends” co-host Abby Huntsman seemed to slip up Sunday while discussing the upcoming summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, calling it a meeting of “two dictators.”

Huntsman and “Fox & Friends” guest Anthony Scaramucci, who was infamously fired as White House communications director after just 10 days in office, chatted about the highly anticipated summit during the show Sunday.

“This is history,” Huntsman said over video showing Trump arriving in Singapore ahead of Tuesday’s meeting with Kim.

“Regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now ? this is history,” she continued."

College hoops has its problems to be sure but so does the NBA. Each season starts with only 3-4 teams with any remote chance off winning the championship. And, with Golden State it looks like you could have the same franchise winning 5 or more titles in a row. No suspense to the season whatsoever.

Joe-don't like  college--the one & out rule ruins it.  Besides  being  illegal
       
A  friend of mine grew up  in Boston--Russell's  Celtics  drew  only wellin playoffs.

I do recall the circus thing with the Knicks (and NY was a "hotbed" of interest compared to many of the other NBA cities of the time). The influx in the late 50s/early 60s of Wilt, Russell, Robertson, and Baylor really began to turn things around for the league. The "old" stars were great but not box office gold, guys like Cousy, Lovellette, Pettit, Sharman, Schayes, etc. To this day, I still far prefer college hoops to the NBA.

And weekend events at the old MSG would consist of 1-2 H.S. prelim's followed by an NBA doubleheader! All for one single low admission price  of maybe $2.00 - early 60's.

Another phenomenom with the NBA was the doubleheaders. 4 different NBA teams playing two back to back games. I know that was going on as late as 1966-67. Got an old program from the Baltimore Civic Center from the Fall of 1966. First game @6:30pm was Knicks-Pistons, second game @9pm was home team Bullets vs. Royals. Tix were still a hard sell I guess.
