Here is to you Mr Johnny Podres!! I dedicate my #45 ranking to you sir! I hope you are wearing a halo around your head!
.Here here are some of the lyrics to “Johnny Podres wears a halo ’round his head” that was written after the 1955 World Series.
“Johnny brought the crown to Ebbets Field at last,
No more ‘Wait ’til Next Year’! Now ‘next year’ has passed! Casey’s mighty men struck out,
You could hear old Brooklyn shout,
Johnny Podres has a halo ’round his head (I could kiss him!)
Johnny Podres has a halo ’round his head!
(Pinch me, I’m dreaming!)”
Wish I had the 45′ record!
