A Leyland Nugget

Back in 2015 I was running Rumbunter (I lay no claim to what it is now), and I got the chance to cover the Chuck Tanner Awards Banquet that year. You can read that write up here.

But the real story was Jim Leyland. There was a silent auction of typical sports memorabilia stuff for charity. Leyland was walking around checking out the items by himself. I was near him and I heard him mumble something..I couldn’t quite make out what it was. But he was clearly annoyed with something. Someone came over to him, patted him on the back. I heard Leyland say this:

“What can we get the hell out of here and go get a real drink.”
