The Life and Times of the Fabulous Charlie Champion*Preface/Pretext

PREFACE/PRETEXT

I

The post World War II ” Baby Boomers “, growing up in the 5O’s and 60’s, were exposed to a socio economic environment, vastly different from the world of today.Familial stability was the norm. Most families consisted of a mother a father , and two children. The woman stayed home and took care of the children and the domicile. The man was the bread winner, getting up every morning, going to work, and returning home to his family every night.

Dinner time was 6 O’clock. The American family would sit down together and share a bonding experience,while discussing school, currents events and interesting gossip. These were things which we could always count on …….

The evening news on Channel 4 , N.B.C,. was straightforward and more verbal than visual . They were constantly looking for human interest stories to entertain and distract while treating journalism with the classic “man bites dog” philosophy.

Sports was a major segment of the news. In New York, baseball , was, and always has been king ..In those days,we had three Major League teams, The Brooklyn Dodgers, The New York Giants, and of course, The New York Yankees.The rivalries were intense, and involved Community pride, and passionate fans.

This was our escape into a better reality,the excitement of the “Boys of Summer”

Johnny Padres in 1955 winning the first Brooklyn World series 2-0 in Game Seven.

Don Larsen and his perfect game.

Sey Hey Willie Mays with his artistic pattented basket catch.

Don Drysdale and the immortal Sandy Kofax.

The Mick ,number 7 moving with effortless grace.

Campy, Pee Wee, The Scooter, Whitey et al..

.Simple times, happy memories.
