Earl Warren was a really big Mets fan, as it turns out

I watched the last couple of innings of Game 4 of the '69 Series (see below).

Seconds before the climactic play, Tony Kubek was in the stands interviewing Chief Justice Earl Warren. If a network tried that today, people like me would rip them for losing focus on the game at hand.

Back then there were no regular sports media critics, though.

Also, Floral Park got a mention in the bottom of the 10th, just before hometown boy Pete Richert made the game-losing error for the Orioles.
