"Here comes Cheveldae . . . " Good times! Cujo is an interesting case, a classic longevity guy. Very good for a long time, but arguably never great. His career numbers line up, but the hockey selection process has always been more subjective. It tends to favor champions. There are exceptions, of course, but if only Curtis had starrred in a Cup run . . .
Boy, Sammy -- what's he doing to himself? His self-mutilation is troubling. His life after baseball seems pretty weird. McGwire, by contrast, got back into the game and enjoyed coaching for a while on his own terms. He actually seems pretty normal. It's a shame that it was so hard for him to finally admit the obvious with the juicing stuff. He should have tossed off the burden quickly and moved on.
I know, I know. And many of us thought MLB messing with the manager's freedom to deploy relievers one hitter at a time was an overreach. And now this!
Sure, if there were no other winter sports team the NBA could make it. That's where the "only so many dollars" thing comes in. Had Bill Laurie not botched the Grizzlies buy, he would tested the theory by owning NHL and NBA teams here. Then again, he lost tens of millions on the Blues and got out of pro sports all together. So we probably know how that story would have ended. He's a basketball guy, so he might have sold the Blues and the Grizz here. His Blues president, Mark Sauer, would tell anybody who would listen that the NHL business model was broken and it could never work here.
Hmmm . . . . how about the Dirt Cheap chicken replacing Fredbird?
Baseball will be a major sport for decades, so don't get ahead of yourself.
Yes, NASCAR fans could be the first fans in line to be the guinea pigs in all of this.
Good luck raising the money for the Bob Pettit statue. That would hilarious -- person after person comming up to it. scratching their head, then looking up his name on the interwebs to see who he was.
Worse, because there are no games being played due to the pandemic.
It's weird, then, that so many people under 30 jam into stadiums.
Last we heard he had his hand out to the NFL, seeking financial help.
Stan was wrong and many owners realize that. But LA was LA, Jerry Jones wanted the Rams there and the idea of having a state-of-the-art facility in that market was appealing.
There is no debate there. Russell was a great player on a great team, but LeBron can take over games baseline to baseline.
OK, looks like that's it for today. I will see you next Friday. Be safe out there.
