One of baseball’s best home run hitters of all time; Ken Griffey

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 30, 2008

Chuck is absolutely correct about the focus. on sports

Ken Griffey is nearing 600 home runs and we hear not a peep about it. He has been one of the best all around players in the last 50 years, and if he had not gotten injured, he would be nearing 800 home runs! He is a true role model and drug free!

Meanwhile there has been constant chatter about Barry Bond’s breaking Hank Aaron’s record. The asterisk. Should it count… That is basically focusing on the half empty glass.

We should be taking positive looks on Ken Griffey… and soon Alex Rodriguez… ARod.. as they show how it IS stiill possible to do things the clean, correct way and succeed! (ARod.. get off the 15 day DL asap).

Getting into college. Getting into Duke.

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 27, 2008

If you really want to go to Duke… Here is what was overheard from a Duke alumnus. Take it for what is’t worth. Apply for the Duke Engineering school. You have a better chance of getting into that school than Duke in general. If you are not interested in engineering, perhaps it can get you in and then you can transfer. While this is a rumour, think about it.

Rangers lose to Penguins; Go down 2-0; Avery still a punk

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 27, 2008

NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins won a closely fought 2-0 win over the New York Rangers. Penguins scored their first goal on a power play goal with the second goal being an open-netter off the boards.

It was a great game and everyone’s punk Sean Avery caused his typical problems hanging around the goal tender Mr Fleury.

Rumour has it that Sean Avery, Martin Brodeur, and Marc-Andre Fleury, are getting together tonight for dinner and a game of charades.
