If you were a 1980s era purveyor of vices and you needed a celebrity spokesperson to push your wares on television, you couldn't do much better than Billy Martin. Want to sell some beer? Get Billy Martin. Sell some nudie mags? Billy Martin. Black market baby pandas? Billy Martin fuckin' loves those things. But perhaps there was no better marriage of athlete and product than Billy Martin and pipe tobacco:
I've never smoked a pipe before, but I realize that it was quite popular back in the early 1980s. But what is this "bite" concept? What does it feel/taste like when pipe tobacco "bites" you? Is it similar to the time Catshirt got really high at a Red Sox game and tried to smoke Butch Huskey's sunflower seeds and Butch Huskey bit him?
