We grew up on the West Island of Montreal – in Pierrefonds to be exact. In the summer we had a membership to this pool, I think it was called Brierwood. Anyway, Brierwood used to sponsor these trips to see the Expos. They’d hire out a school bus and all the kids would pile in and head to Jarry Park for a double-header. My brother and sister and I wouldn’t get home until way past eleven – I’m amazed that our parents would even let us go un-chaperoned.

Bye-bye Boccabella. So long Coco Laboy. I’ll miss you Mack Jones.

Expos forever.
