Found In My Basement: Bill Buckner

While the entire Boston Red Sox nation hated Bill Buckner for many years, I always liked him. This is the reason why:

My grandfather got my brother and I autographed glossy pictures of Bill Buckner from his days as a Chicago Cub. I have no idea how or why my grandfather got these pictures, but I always thought it was cool, probably because all of the gold chains on Buckner's bat.

By the way, it seems like Boston fans finally forgave Buckner. Bill Simmons wrote a great article about him as part of ESPN Magazine.
