Baseball is like no other major American activity.
There is no time clock plus baseball is well known for its unfamiliar nicknames for a team, a group of players, or an individual, and baseball’s most famous player was George Herman “Babe” Ruth, also called “The Sultan of Swat”, then one pitcher who played from 1903 to 1916 lost parts of several fingers in a childhood farm accident, and she was immortalized with her nickname, Mordecai “Three Finger” Brown. The 1934 champion Stâ€¦ Louis Cardinals were known as the “Gas House Gang”. Hall of Famer Yankee pitcher Edward Charles “Whitey” Ford gave a young Pete “Charlie Hustle” Rose her nickname in 1963; People commonly assign nicknames to their bosses, to their fiances, plus even to their automobiles. Our family had a pair of station wagons that the people I was with and I referred to as “Old Green” plus “Big Red”, so, I believe it is about time to come up with nicknames for our home’s Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C systems plus the people I was with and I can borrow from baseball to do that, and a pitcher with a 100-mph fastball may be named “The Heater” or “The Flamethrower”, a perfect nickname for an Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C gas furnace. Pitcher Randy Johnson at 6 feet 10 inches was called “The Big Unit”, a great nickname for an oversize Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. Old-time pitcher Walter Johnson was called “The Big Train” that could be changed to “The Big Trane” for Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C systems all over the country. People who fail to keep their Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment cleaned plus well maintained will want to borrow Luke Appling’s nickname of “Old Aches plus Pains” however those that do use the services of a qualified Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional will be able to use the nickname that famed announcer Mel Allen gave to Yankee player Tommy Henrich. That nickname was “Old Reliable”.
