I go in hard for baseball[ll]. Shit is the most perfect pastime. There’s no shot clock or play clock or timeouts. Shit is just forever.
What did I say about the ‘Nats? I forgot to list Zimmerman and sonn hits a game-winning walk off homerun.
The National League East is the only division in baseball.
The American League Central has a few good clubs, but competition wise the NL East pwns baseball.
G Dubbz threw out the gameball in D.C. He nearly threw that shit past the catcher all the way to the backstop. That was about as fitting a metaphor for his administration as I could think of.
Did you realize that thirty five years ago Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s all time homerun record. Even though the Hammer doesn’t own the all time record any longer he is still the MLBGOAT HR hitter for my money. The Hammer never had to use HGH or amphetamines to get himself in shape for the game. The Hammer also set his record against the best players that the game had to offer. His mark wasn’t watered down from being achieved in a racially segregated league either.
Most of all The Hammer began his record breaking season with 713 home runs. During the off season he received so many death threats that he took out a life insurance policy so his family could have some money just in case he got merc’ked. Black athletes didn’t have those endorsement checks popping like they do today where even the mediocre players are millionaires.
Hank Aaron could have retired with 713 and he would still have been my hero. I appreciate Barry Bonds achievement also, but he and everyone after him will never have to experience the trial of fire that Hank Aaron walked through. Last year we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the courageous Jack Roosevelt Robinson, If you fucks with baseball any kind of way please respect the men that defied the haters in order to be heroes.
