to play football, not to play trumpet
This afternoon Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, and John Smoltz were enshrined in baseball's Hall of Fame. All deserving in my, unimportant, opinion. It's a pretty solid class, and it's very impressive what the pitchers accomplished during the height of the steriod era.
Baseball was my first love growing up, and I was convinced, like many others, that I, too, would one day be a big leaguer. I followed the game religiously. This, and last years class, are the first two that I watched for a meaningful amount of time (26 y/o). So, these hall of fame classes are getting more special for me.
What says you? Any favorite memories from these guys? As a Sox fan, I'll never forget Pedro's '99 All Star start and tossing Zimmer to the ground.
So, I am looking at the News this morning and I see a cyber survey under this headline on the UM page. "Should Rodriguez be disciplined for using steriods?" I guess now he carries the baggage of all people named Rodriguez...
Michigan finished 7-5 (3-5 Big Ten) in Rich Rodriguez’s third season, and are awaiting word on its bowl destination. The likely scenario is a Dec. 28 date in the Insight Bowl in Tempe, Ariz.. - 11/29/2010
Awesome job by Michael Taylor on WTKA the other day. He called in to
talk about Tony Mandarich's steriod use. OMG it's hilarious. Check
