Oh wow! My all time favorite Eagles song!

Man, 37 years old and it still makes me feel good and brings a smile every time I hear it!

Yep. This was even before the Eagles LP was released. It was truly the first time they were "out there" for the listening public. And look at 'em now!

Summer 1972 I was busy starting school! Lol! But still Its hard to believe TIE is now 0fficially 37. Its still a great song and my heart always skips a beat when it comes on. I love when Glenn calls 'All Right' and smiles when performing it live.

CONGRATULATIONS TIE

Wasn't Molly just asking for an animated version of Glenn playing baseball?? We may have just found it! Nice pix, and interesting video!

What a wonderful idea that was, and what a brilliant game. AND great memories too for those of us who were quite unaware of it at the time Lol!

Brilliant pictures and videos!

I love watching that clip on the Rolling Stone site. That baseball game has become nothing short of legendary! Can you just imagine how 'politically incorrect' it would be for a governor of a state to show up at such an event today.
