    I was at a fund raiser picnic and mickey and doc golden were there, along w goose goosage, David cone, and some others. Mickey and docs women were there and the appearance fee went right to them .

    My buddy was an nypd cop assigned to the yanks in the 70's and 80's. Mickey was always asking Steinbrenner for an advance, and would go right up the road to Yonkers raceway to bet the horses. He made 100,000 a year playing centerfield for he yanks.

    I was invited to dinner at Yankee Stadium a couple of years ago, and Mick the Quick was there. Got a picture with him, and he signed some autographs.
    He was gracious to everyone that wanted to meet him.
    And he still sports the gold teeth!

    (On the weather during a game) "Man, it was tough. The wind was blowing about 100 degrees."

    There's a great story about him & his wife in the Steinbrenner biography.
    Apparently, Mickey used to waste his paycheck on booze & gambling. His wife was always down at the Stadium trying to get the checks made out to her directly. And one day, she was in the players' parking lot all angry & just ramming her car into theirs.
    George couldn't take it anymore, so he told Mickey. "If you can't control your wife, I'm going to get the Black Panthers to do it"
    George already had them on payroll doing security at the stadium.
    Man, I miss the Boss.
