Failure #4: Rich "Goose" Gossage

The autograph attempts are sadly turning into a string of rejection letters.  This time one from Goose Gossage arrived with a small note card with a pre-typed apology note, as well as a photocopied signature (a nice touch that I wish more rejection letters would include).  The note points the autograph seeker to his website, which plays "Bad to the Bone" when you visit.  Wow.

Somewhat ironically, the note included a HAND WRITTEN request for $20.  I suspect he hires someone to do this - wouldn't it just be easier to stop paying them and sign whatever comes in instead of paying someone to do this?  Ah well, I'm just angry at another failure.


  1. When I was growing up, I would go to Yankee Stadium and watch him pitch. He was great. He deserved to be in the Hall.

  2. Yes, I think the Hall voters are coming to terms with the career reliever being inducted.
