I will argue yes..
yes yes yes..
I know it means you are going to be remembered for 1000 years as a complete loser..
And Bill Buckner will be psynenonomous for **** up..
But lets face the facts;
1. you are set for life financially..
2. how many other guys than roger clemens can you name from that red sox 86 team?
see what I mean..
3. Once every 20 years bill buckner will get invited to throw the first pitch at Fenway, cause 100% can relate to **** up..
I got more ammo,
but want to keep my cards tight..

Why on gods green earth would I trade places with Bill?
I mean lets list some of the things I have that Bill doesn't
I have no kids to worry and care for... I got me myself an I.
I have a winning record on fan nation to brag about to all my friends on the internet.
I have friends on the internet.
I have quality heath insurance.
My favorite color is blue and would not be able to deal with liking anything else more.
I would not be 61 years old... that sounds terrible.
I own my dog. I do not even know if he has a dog, but I do not want to own it.
I'm not married... at least I think that is a plus.
I like who I am, I'm certain Bill hates himself at times.
I liked not playing baseball growing up.
Waffles are better than pancakes, bill thinks otherwise.
I could go on forever about things I have that bill doesn't.
I like the fact that no one in boston has my phone number... if everyone in boston did I would lose my mind.
He trumps me in one area and one area only...
His Magnum PI mustache. That is kinda cool.
But all in all, I would rather be me than Bill. Why would you want to be Bill?

I see what you are saying..
better to live a life of happiness, than someone who has nightmares for the rest of there lives..
But to have a million in the bank, that would make me VERY happy..
And guess what?
I dont give a damn what people think of me..
I live my life, if people want to talk sh-ee-it behind my back..
Fine, dont know dont care..
I guess the thing that would rock me the most, would be the death threats, that buckner got..
But thats the price of being famous..
All in all, I'd like to think I am open minded enough to put myself in buckners shoes..
He has a difficult life..
But for a ridiculous amount of money, I wouldnt mind a difficult life..

You never said anything about putting me in Buckners shoes... can't change the TD once It started. But I never want to wear his shoes. That's kinda gross? does he wear socks all the time? uhhh
You do not need to be Buckner to have a million in the bank. Don't get me wrong, I do not have a million in the bank but I make a respectable salary and do and have most everything I want and need without getting death threats.
Actually the majority of people who have a million or more in the bank are not athletes or celebrities. They do not get death threats. You do not have to be Snookie or Jeter to get paid. Learn a trade master it and apply it to the consumers in a way they can not refuse to pay what ever you demand.
You think life will by you happiness? What did Biggie try to teach us? Mo money, mo problems.
And not to sound cruel or make light of his fate but seems like he knows what he was talking about.
If you do not care so much about what people think of you then what is wrong with just being you?

ok I would say I have a very good life..

he probably got to bang a couple of models..

You are lucky, you have a respectable job, you have fun hobbies, you probably have good friends, and a nice supportive family. You are willing to throw that away for a few dollars?
Plain and simple...
I would rather you be you, i will be me and let bill buckner have his life.
Everyone wins except Bill!!!
