Some World Series Fan Messages From 1989

I just got a few papers covering the Loma Prieta quake on eBay. For some reason the seller threw in the San Francisco Examiner’s classifieds section for Thursday, October 19, 1989. From the start of the classifieds, here are some of the "Bay’s Ball Cheers" sent in by fans and businesses, supporting the A's and/or Giants:

The Cobra’s gonna Bite!!! -Marty Mongoose

Go Big Daddy Go!-The Over-40 Club Fans
The A’s Will Make Ham-Burger out of Hammaker-Greg’s Burger Emporium
Everybody likes a Weiss guy-I.M. Smart
Kick the A’s A.
Humm Baby–Go Giants. Lets build a GI-Nasty. Patty & Pres.
Bedrosian is no bed of roses!-Cubs Fan
Let’s Get the Eck out of there!-Giant’s fan
The Butler Will Do it-Miss T. Ree
I’m converting to Hendu-ism-Ali Outsinfree

I like the last one most. These were a pre-text message, pre-Twitter way for people to broadcast short messages, but you had to pay the Examiner to print them.
