    Uh-huh; Jerry Jones is one magnificent owner who fired one of the greatest coaches in NCAA or NFL history- Jimmy Johnson. Jones’ ego managed to cripple his franchise; it has never been the same since.

    1961 Yankees. Mantle and Maris homerun slug out. Saw it at old yankee stadium.

    Just … wow.

    My only claim to fame is I managed to get seats behind the dug-out for Jeter’s final game. (It pays to know hedge fund managers.) He came out for the 7th inning stretch and I nearly knocked over two young kids to get his autograph.

    I have no shame.

    Regarding Jeter, Simon Templar learned that lesson the hard way, as I recall. 😉

    Bold choice; he’ll always be Charlie Hustle to me.

    He’s my GOAT. He’s a tragic hero kind of like Ty Cobb.

    Don’t you speak ill of my homey from the Motor City; he was a true competitor!

    “I have observed that baseball is not unlike war, and when you get right down to it, we batters are the heavy artillery.”

    No don’t misunderstand, Cobb is great. He is certainly in the top three of GOAT. But he was a tragic hero.
