GARTH BROOKS ENDS SPRING TRAINING<BR> Garth Brooks never did get his longed for hit in a major league ball game, but he came away with plenty, including the respect of his teammates, the fans (he signed autographs for 3 hours after every game), and, of course, one more chance to live his childhood dream for a few weeks.<P> GARTH has tentatively scheduled a press conference for the morning of April 3rd, to take place in New York's Shea Stadium. No details yet as to what he plans to announce or discuss.<P>Just wonderin if anyone knows anything about this?? <P>LeannN

OK Ok...... This is all I will say on this topic LOL :)<P>Garth's Announcement isn't going to be a bad one. But what really is bad? Bad for Garth or Bad for us? .. I do knwo this will be very good for Garth :)<P>JasonN

03-20-2000, 11:52 AM
Jason:<P>Thanks for the info. but now I'm dying with anticipation :+)............hmmmmm is there any way to bribe you ;+) lol<P>LeannN

Jason,<P>I'm not sure if I like the sound of that..<P>Are you saying what is good for Garth, isn't going to be good for the fans?<P>Should I stock up on kleenex?<P>~Ann~<BR>N

03-20-2000, 12:36 PM
It is most likely about 2 things, retirement :( or baseball related. Thats all it can be about. I doubt it is anything like a tour becasue he has no time for a tour with all the albums and the Lamb.N

03-20-2000, 12:43 PM
Where is Shea stadium????? I bet anything he is officializing his retirement and might be by a very small tour but I doubt a big one since he is busy. Probally something to do with his charity maybe. I would hope if it is bad news for us like hsi retirement announcement or even news on a farewell tour that he would not flaunt it for a couple weeks only for us to have anticipated nothing but bad news, that is not a very nice thing to do on the people who have made you what you are.N

03-20-2000, 12:44 PM
I hope it is about the movie :) :)<P>And I really hope it is a good thing for the fans :)<P>BrianN

03-20-2000, 12:51 PM
its probably either hes going back to spring training every year until he dies (exaggeration), or his retirement is <B>final</B> :(<P>aRiN

03-20-2000, 12:52 PM
I hadn't heard about it before. I'm guessing it's probably about a project (like an album or the movie) or retirement.N

03-20-2000, 02:25 PM
<B>Heeeeeere we go againnnnn!</B><P>My guess is it's something to do with baseball and the foundation and maybe his intent to do it again next year.<P>Plus....maybe he'll sing the National Anthem on opening day.<P>Why would he pick the Mets opening day to announce anything about retiring?<P>Cheryl<BR>N

03-20-2000, 02:37 PM
Exactly Cheryl,<P>It has to be about Baseball!!<P>LoriN

03-20-2000, 02:40 PM
I wonder if his announcement could possible have anything to do with the dinner he's having? Doesn't it involve Metts players or something? Maybe I'm reading too much into this but the events are close together in time and place so it looks like they could be related. :)<P>-Karen-N

03-20-2000, 05:52 PM
Cheryl - my thoughts exactly. However, every time he does this, since it seems to be a habit of his, I will tell myself 'he said that if he was going to retire, he'd announce it at the END of the year'. And hope he sticks to it. Jason, ouch. No fair. :( Feels like someone's swinging a stick real close - I keep flinching waiting to be hit... :(N

03-20-2000, 05:55 PM
Its the dinner thing. I am sure of that. Go read the article about it that is posted on the side. The deatils are in it. It is not about retiring at all just dinner however I am sure the press will ask him about the retirement.N

03-21-2000, 01:20 AM
I'm confused...<P>So, it's basically just him saying, "YAY! We did awesome!" ?<P>Not that that would be a bad thing, but it's not really an <I>announcement</I>, y'know? I mean... I don't know what I mean, it just seems odd.<P>I'm still gonna wait and see.<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN

03-21-2000, 02:08 AM
Danielle :)<P>I agree :D<P>I still think he might mention something about the movie :)<BR> <BR>I don't think he will announce his retirement since he himself has said he would talk about that at the end of the year :)<P>BrianN

03-21-2000, 03:27 AM
Gee I thought it would be " I like playing with the Mets so much I bought the team" kinda thing. LOl!<BR> I'm taking up a colection to send a worthy person to the diiner......<B> ME!!!</B>.<BR> How wants to contibute???<P>****sigh**** I can dream can't I?? LOL!<P>debN

03-21-2000, 10:56 AM

03-21-2000, 10:58 AM
Gee, that dinner might be worth it if it was REALLY an intimate dinner with Garth but Garth and 100 OTHER PEOPLE?????? That's more like a $1000 or $2000 event. Not $8000!<P>BevN
