    I was very happy to read about Bernie Carbo and to learn that he is doing so well ! I knew him in the early 80’s and he was a very special guy my friends and I often wondered how he was and if he was ok, good to know that he is fine and so happy that he has over come all his Demons ! Great job Bernie and good luck to you and yours and may God Bless you and keep you well !

    I may have told you previously, but I met Carbo at the Red Sox Fantasy Camp maybe 20 years ago. I told him that I was at the sixth WS game and saw his home run.

    His response: “Ya, you and about 250,000 people,” and he walked away. Maybe he was still in a down phase in his life.

    Nonetheless, time to write a new story. My nifty son Matthew called last night to tell me he bought us tix to Game 2 on Wednesday!
