2022 Card-vent Calendar: December 8

December 8, 2022:
1993 Topps Stadium Club #394 Tony Longmire
If there's anything Major League Baseball players are known for, it's sitting around in the clubhouse after a game and catching up on basic cable or streaming service-produced modern western television series.  This year's Philadelphia Phillies National League Championship team would famously gather around the nearest available screen to catch up on the latest episodes of Yellowstone.  Well, all of the Phillies except one.

"Kevin Costner?  He's alright, I guess.   I don't really buy him as the seen-it-all cattle rancher, though."
Those are the words of Tony Longmire, who just finished his 30th season as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.

"For me, Longmire is where it's at," says Longmire.  "A&E has long been synonymous with the very best TV programming, right up there with... no, ABOVE a channel like HBO.  It's the channel that has always had something for everybody.  From Storage Wars to the rebroadcast episodes of Homicide: Life on the Street in the early 2000s, it's a lineup that can never be beat."

When we asked Longmire about the appeal of Longmire, a series that wrapped up its sixth and final season in late 2017, Longmire thought for a bit.  "It's... it's just Longmire."

It's just Longmire, indeed.
