  1. My first game was a senators game, I remember the players, just not the game itself, and back then they used to give out real Louisville sluggers to kids attending games. I loved mine, did mine my handle up with the rough black electrical tape of that era, and the bigger i got, the better I was able to use that awesome bat. Damn, I wish my old man hadnt toss that SOB when I left home.
  2. I remember a very proud Dallas team having a 1-15 record and was able to recover from it. I think they lost more of their outside DC fan base than DC Fan base. What I mean by that, they used to be around the 2nd or 3rd NFL in team merchandising sales, which now they are no longer. Look at the Orioles, they are in total complete disrepair, and they didnt lose their fan base over it. As the Orioles found out in 12, winning cures everything.
  3. @Frobby Im sure you have heard them all, but this one is so funny. Police Officer on the stand, testifying in a formal court case. Q. Did you see my client fleeing the scene? A. No sir, but I observed a person who matching the description, running, just a couple of block away. Q, Who provided this description? A. A fellow officer, the first one on the scene. Q. So a fellow office provided this, do you trust your fellow officer? A.Yes sir, with my life Q. With your life. Yet back where you change into your uniform, do you have a lock on your locker? A. Yes sir, I do. Q. Yet you trust your fellow officer with your life. Why do you feel it necessary to lock up your stuff? A. Well, its like this, we are also housed in this court complex and lawyers have been know to walk through that room. The courtroom erupted in laughter, and the court quickly called a short recess. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  4. I dislike Jeter the person, Jeter being a pinstriper. While he wasnt much with the glove, its hard to deny his ability with the bat. For the life of me, I dont get the clowns that voted him so many GG. His career dWAR was like -8.3. Does he beyond in the HOF as a first ballot yes, I hate to see him get unanimous, when so many before him, deserved and didnt. Somebody said once, who cares if I got in by unanimous, I am in, and thats the bottom line.
  5. Understood, sounds like they never found the right partner, but at least they was shopping, and I was partly right.
  6. Thanks. I did find this. https://www.baltimoresun.com/maryland/harford/aegis/sports/ph-ag-ripken-world-series-reaction-0928-20160923-story.html
  7. One thing about the "Old" days, between WTOP and WBAL AM radio had the areas pretty well coverage, and at night, WBAL could get some pretty nice skips down to southern md and PA.
  8. Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
  9. So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.
  10. My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
  11. Once you reach @bobmcage, you can play super senior ball, and walkers are allowed.
  12. The rec leagues around me, have teams, but at least 40-60% less.
  13. his mini AED went off and restarted him back among us.
  14. who the hell cares about looks. What do you know, how do you plan to operate and build me a winning baseball team is way more important. Bald, Grey, Punk Rocker Red, I dont care. Just get the job done.
  15. Nah, there is a league of three that try to complete with each other.
  16. I dont live in downtown, but it usually takes me about 25 minutes to get to OPACY even at rush hour. Im usually arrive at 5 for a game at 7. It this helps with attendance, then great. People dont like change. So on that fact along, some fans are already complaining. Fans like Frobby, loyal to the team, and living/working into another city, I feel their pain trying to get to game at an earlier starting time.
  17. Seam like a very slow off-season all around MLB.
  18. I am not in favor of gun control, but gun education, society has to get to the point, that this crap is not acceptable. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/los-angeles-county-deputies-respond-report-santa-clarita-school-shooting-n1082231
  19. I couldnt find the current average time, but I did see that in 2017, the time rose to 3 hr and 5 minutes, in spite of MLB efforts to reduce it. Of course, implementing replay system has to impact time, and Im not opposed to instant replay.
  20. You could look it up, its relatively easy with google. https://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0912/which-income-class-are-you.aspx
  21. I agree the fans get it, the trolls just want to stir the pot and incite others.
  22. Not my car, but saw this, and took a trip down memory lane, sure was easier to jack the car up by the bumper, then crawling around on the ground to find the proper point to jack your car up at. So much fun putting the jack behind the rear wheel at the axle mount. https://www.google.com/search?q=bumper+jacks&rlz=1C1GCEJ_enUS867US867&sxsrf=ACYBGNT9CiAVWEf3lZZo8aghIQ0L3enRSg:1573746851822&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwilwMbwh-rlAhVRba0KHYmBDbkQ_AUIEygC&biw=1902&bih=878#imgrc=nbl_5VcM0GRkNM:
  23. I call Boras corrupt. Scott is in it, for one reason only, himself, everything he does, helps himself out, and he doesn't always have the player's best interest at stake.
