sammy sosa's transition to a white man is now complete.
I always respected ted turner. didn't always agree with him, hated he married that fonda bitch, but he always said what was on his mind. back when he won Americas Cup he was known as the mouth.
well, I like the compilation of old movies...not real Fonda Jane!I always respected ted turner. didn't always agree with him, hated he married that fonda bitch, but he always said what was on his mind. back when he won Americas Cup he was known as the mouth.
In one of the old VFW posts I used to drink at, they had a urinal sticker with Jane spread eagle that you couldn’t help but pee on.
A little more hiking related, spent last night at the Midtown Inn in Baltimore. Brought back memories of The Doyle. Told my son I found the cheapest one I could find on Travelocity so we could have money to buy nicer seats. Needless to say I would not recommend staying there.
Yikes, Bloomberg says Baltimore is #1 city in USA for bedbugs. Guess we just dodged a bullet with that one.A little more hiking related, spent last night at the Midtown Inn in Baltimore.

Alan Trammel the best all around pure short stop of my life time, finally got in via the Vetrans Committee, so Ozzie can stay.
I can not see why any GM wanting to win would pick Ozzie Smith or Barry Larkin over him, but the BBWA sure did. Not that they don't deserve to be in the HOF, but it was ridiculous that he wasn't.
just checked his stats -- if you told me he only hit 218 homer runs (not counting 31 in japan) i woulda said that number was too low. injuries...only averaged 102 game per year over his 10 year career. picture perfect swing.
1978 rookie of the year despite only playing 89 games -- runner up? -- ozzie smith who played in 159.
oh well -- at least he's in the college hall of fame. (obviously doesn't belong in the baseball hall of fame).
trivia -- wore jersey number 50 in japan becasue that's how many HR's they expected him to hit.
Chipper Jones and Jacob Nighthorse from Longmire remind me a lot of each other. Both work hard at having an image of a good guy, but too many contradicting stories to believe it. Of course one is real and the other is a TV character, but interesting similarity.

Don’t think the new MLB rule restricting the number of visits per game (6) to the pitcher’s mound will have a noticeable impact on game length. Anyone heard what the penalties are if this number is exceeded?
I remember hanging out near Chief Nocahoma's tent during batting practice once and Bob Horner hit a ball so hard that we all scattered, lol. The damn thing hit the back of seat and bounced back onto the field. It was scary how hard he could hit a baseball.
On an unrelated note: Astro, I thought about you this weekend. I was watching a couple of documentaries on Netflix and made a note to relay them to you. The first is "Fastball" and the second is "Battered Bastards of Baseball", check them out if you haven't already, both are excellent.
