The best Charlie Manuel interview you'll ever read

Charlie Manuel headshot.jpgYou all know that I have a bit of a crush on Charlie Manuel. This interview with Yahoo!’s Dave Brown only makes it stronger.  It’s got everything: the Amish, professional wrestling, Manuel and Mickey Mantle talking about “Mother Nature things” and how Ron Washington was always a “hard nosed” player who was a “high energy guy.”  And that was before he used cocaine!

Just a fun interview. Brown is great at this stuff and Manuel sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

    No “Charlie Manuel is here from the past to save us” tag?

    Charlie Manuel is just a nice guy. The polar opposite of the man he replaced as Phillies manager.

    Ha! Grampa Moyer may very well be older than Cholly. Cholly ranks up there with the greats in Philly sports history. I can only imagine how his down-home, aw-shucks vernacular translated into Japanese.

    I’d also bet a dollar that the place in Lancaster Charlie and the missus go to: Shady Maple. Man, I love that place.
