  1. this is one of the few movie songs which I appreciate a lot more after seeing the movie. I found it a run of the mill tune back in the 80s, never seeing the movie until being with women who adored it in the early-2000s (none as much as my wife now). Now I actually like that song, it fits perfectly in the film.

    • Back when he was on the same pitching staff as Nolan Ryan in Houston- J.R. not only the more intimidating pitcher but the better of the two.

    • I totally agree. Joe Morgan said he was probably the toughest pitcher he ever faced. I have to wonder what if…but I’m glad he survived it although he had a rough life for a while.

    • He seemed to be – possibly due to his height- kind of like Randy Johnson- took him a while to really get going but when he did- could he have had a Randy Johnson like career- with his prime in his 30’s? Yes, what could have been. His stroke totally changed the way I view an athlete saying he was hurt etc… the Astros thought he was just jaking it…of course until it was obvious he wasn’t.

    • It was shocking to me that someone that young would go through that. That probably changed baseball’s way of looking at injuries.

    • It is sad, but I must admit I mistakenly thought he had died about ten years back. I remember seeing him once or twice in a televised game – man, that was one tall dude!
