From 1971 to 1979, I was a security guard for the Yankees, Mets and Madison Square Garden. In the ballparks, I mostly worked right next to the home team dugouts. It was never boring, often pretty exciting, occasionally dangerous.
I had to laugh when I read this story about blowhard Bill O’Reilly being kicked out of the Mets locker room. If this had been “back in the day,” as the kids say, it could well have been me who would be escorting Loofah O’Felafel out. And I would have enjoyed every moment of it.
