I don’t know when this Peoria Chiefs minor league baseball game took place and I don’t care. Coulda been yesterday, coulda been last year. Coulda been when ma and pa Burns just had themselves a twinkle in their eyes. But I’ll be damned if Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard taking the time to share his dreams with a minor league pallpark crowd ain’t reason enough to revisit a legend and his Team Ghost Riders.
And Tim’s dream?
“In 1962, a little boy was born and his dream and his goal… was to own a monkey.”
You tell ‘em about dreams, Tim. By God, you tell ‘em about dreams.
