<!-NOTE: Message edited by 'admin'-!>Curtis Sliwa, the Stickball Commissioner has arrived. To put it mildly, the tone of the event has changed. John Campi presents a dignified call of the game, when Curtis steps up o the mike all rules go out the window. Yes, each player gets a nickname, a review of his nationality, comments on his food choices, clothing style and anything else that comes to mind
“Neil’s luncheonette in desperate need of a geritol fix or a shot of Jolt cola. Anything to help get them moving.”
You can imagine Sliwa’s reaction as the Dodger Sym-Phony band plays Rudolf the Red nosed Reindeer to cool the crowd.
Curtis insults the crowd, the neighborhood, the band, the teams. He clearly feels at home.
