The Breakfast Club Welcomes Lanny Frattare

The famous Northside Breakfast Club welcomed Lanny Frattare and his friend Susanne as its special guests this morning.  Many thanks to Dan Bonk who turned a chance encounter at a Get Go gas station into this special visit from the former Voice of the Pirates.  The only bummer was that breakfast regular Jim Haller was unable to join us this morning.

Lanny was a most engaging guest and he shared many interesting stories about such personalities as Jim Leyland, Gene Lamont, Jason Kendall, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Milo Hamilton, Dave Littlefield, Bob Prince, Anna Benson, Steve Blass and many others.  The nature of our gathering was such that these stories will remain "off the record", but trust me, they were some great stories told this morning.

As I said, Lanny was most gracious, and that extended to him picking up the check for all of us this morning, an unprecedented move!  When he signed the baseball that we ask all of our guests to sign, he made note of the fact, as you can see:

Yes, it was a great morning with Lanny and there was Noooooooooo doubt about it!
