    Bruce Springsteen's Little League Baseball Teammate Subject Of 1984 Hit 'Glory Days'

    Bruce Springsteen's Little League baseball buddy, Joe DePugh, had no idea that the entertainer wrote a song about him being a star athlete.

    But one of DePugh's co-workers was familiar with the story of the 1967 graduates running into each other at a New Jersey bar in 1973 and catching up on old times. He immediately recognized the scenario when he heard Springsteen's 1984 hit "Glory Days" and told DePugh about it.

    I've always wondered who was Candy. One of my fav songs by Bruce is "candys room". Such intensity.

    and leaves you with nothing mister but
    boring stories of glory days..."

    Which is the part that lifts your spirits, brandi: the drunken ex-athlete, the ex-cheerleader struggling to make it as a single mom or the father who can't find work after being fired from the factory? LOL.

    Listening to "Glory Days", always makes me happy! I guess it reminds of when I was growing up!

    im a huge Springsteen fan but for some reason Glory Days is one of my least favorite.
    I guess Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River albums spoiled me but that mush mouthed yokel delivery he gives the song always seemd so dumbed down and contrived it gets on my nerves.
    But as many people love that song I figure it must just be me.

    Lol, I've never liked Bruce Springsteen and Glory Days is the only song he ever did that I actually enjoy.
    "Life's splendor forever lies in wait about each one of us in all its fullness, but veiled from view, deep down, invisible, far off. It is there, though, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If you summon it by the right word, by its right name, it will come."

    What I type here is mostly my opinion.
    I really don't care if my opinions offend.
