ONLY 32 MORE DAYS TILL COLLEGE FOOTBALL

THE NEW SERGEANT SLAUGHTER?


We all remember the fateful day when Sergeant Slaughter decided to switch his allegiances as a patriotic American and instead became an Iraqi sympathizer. I still get pissed even though I know it's fake. Well now we have PacMan Jones as our new bad guy.

He already has the perfect name and reputation. I'm thinking he makes his premeire dressed up a pimp with some ho's and making it rain with fake money.


CONGRATS TO CAL RIPKEN AND TONY GWYNN
Growing up as a huge fan of Cal Ripken and equally appreciative of Tony Gwynn and his contributions to the game, I think yesterday's introduction of both to the Hall is something the game of baseball needed. Both players carried themselves with class and dignity on and off the field and both are still highly involved with young impressionable kids teaching them the fundamentals of the game.
I consider myself lucky to have had a guy like Ripken to look up to as a role model. He was so much more than "The Streak" and he consistently showed up big in crucial situations. My hope is that one day, hopefully sooner rather than later, he can buy out Peter Angelos and take over the O's.
Again congrats to Ripken and Gwynn, both class players that played the game the right way and made positive headlines throughout their careers.
