I live in Salisbury, had my Pirate shirt

on today when I entered Hap's to eat. Gentlemen in front of me turned and noticed my shirt and said "i guess you are a Pirate fan". I told him I was a long time season ticket holder. He told me: "my brother is Ruffin McNeill". After he said that, yes he did resemble Ruffin in the face. I do not know if he is a resident of Salisbury or not. There is a huge VA Hospital in Salisbury that brings in a lot of people daily to town but otherwise I do not have a clue. I looked at his brother and said: " I do not think he was treated fairly". His reply was "yes" and that was it. He told me he graduated in 1982 from ECU. I don't know if I was totally honest with him. I was of the persuasion that he should have gotten 1 more year but I do think a slide was starting to take place. I do not want to beat this dead horse, because that is behind us, and no matter how you feel, one way or the other, that history lesson is long over. You just never know the people you may meet or the comments you may get when you have that Pirate shirt on.
