Tony Gwynn: 1960-2014


Outside of maybe Manny Ramirez and Robinson Cano, I'm thinking that Tony Gwynn was the best hitter I ever saw. And even more, the dude was just a class act. A very likable man, that never seemed to forget that he was not only there for the fans, but also there because of the fans. A gratitude he never failed to let shine through, either via his mile wide smile and signature chuckle, OR the dedication to and passion for his craft that made him a no brain selection for the Hall of Fame. Not to mention that he was wildly popular, well liked, and respected amongst his peers, and a tremendous asset to the community of San Diego. A place he played for for all TWENTY of his professional seasons. A fact that, on it's own, would probably have made him a legendary figure. That he hit .338 during that time span, was basically a bonus. That's how well liked this guy was. Though hitting that .338, along with a myriad of other impressive numbers, are what make cement his status as one of the game's all time greats...

I could bore you with more of his his mind boggling stats, too. But I won't (OK. Dude had a .415 BA in 107 career ABs against Greg Maddux (with ZERO strike outs!) & he finished his career with 319 steals. His high of 56 coming in 1987). They're all over all the Interweb right now, anyway. So if you want more they're out there for the taking (including great write ups here, here, here, here, here, AND here). But I just wanted to pay my respects to a great man, who at age 54, left us far too early...

Tony Gwynn was a great baseball player, and from all counts, an even better person. We could use a lot more like him, and he will be dearly missed. Rest in peace, friend. And thanks for the memories...


Got some more NBA thoughts, too. Actually, it's just one thought, and it's more of a statement. And it's for all of you out there telling me that the Spurs actually play the type of team basketball that I like, and that I missed out by not watching them play. That statement is this:

If the Spurs were the rule, and not the exception to it. I'd start watching again in a heartbeat. But, alas. The only reason this team is a "story", is because they are the exception in a league filled with teams that rarely play anything resembling "team" offense OR defense on a regular basis.

Oh, and for everyone surprised at how great Kawhi Leonard? Just a heads up. The Spurs are probably gonna grab Cleanthony Early, or somethin'. And he (Early, or whichever more polished player they grab) is gonna make the rest of the GMs look the fool just like Leonard (the 15th pick in 2011, behind the likes of...Jimmer Fredette) has already done. There are just so few competent GMs in the NBA. And maybe even fewer competent coaches. The Spurs have both, and should continue turning chess into checkers for some time to come. At least until their front office core calls it quits. And even then, they seem like the type of organization that will have a decent plan in place to help ensure their future success...

Though I do appreciate all of you that are concerned about what I may be missing. You're good eggs. But I still won't be watching. So there's that...

And speaking of apathy...

The Red Sox play this season has left many a fan stroking their beards in an
attempt to figure out if this year's team will ever find some consistency...
Boston Red Sox
Overall: 32-38 (5 1/2 games out of AL Playoffs)
Last Week: 3-3

I'd love to be the bearer of good news, but another week of mediocre play has led to another mediocre won/loss week for the Boston Red Sox. Which is bound to happen more often than not when statistically, you have baseball's 22nd best offense & 14th best pitching staff. Oh, and Don Orsillio and Jerry Remy spent the better part of  last night's 2nd inning taking selfies. If that's not an indicator of how the average fan feels about this team, then I don't know what is. And I can't say I blame them. For their general apathy, that is. Not their penchant for selfies. Selfies are STRICTLY for Teds. You get 1 or 2, maybe. As long as you're using it as a contact icon or avatar. Otherwise? Ted central. And you already knew this...MAN!*

*This obviously doesn't apply if you're an attractive female, and you manage to get enough of your cleavage in the pic. However, having a dog in said cleave-filled selfie also renders the selfie pointless and annoying.

Oh, and speaking of cleavage. Apparently this exists. I mean, not to go all random boob on ya. But, yeah. Boob deodorant. What a country. Not that it's manufactured here, but you know. We're probably the only people that can A) afford it AND B) are shallow enough to feel the need to use it. Not that there's anything wrong with either of those things. I mean, I am still an American. Are current fixation with soccer notwithstanding...



How Kate Upton doesn't have her own personalized line of this shit, I'll never know...

"Hi, I'm supermodel Kate Upton. And when my breasts get sweaty, I only un-lube my boob with 'Kate's Kup Kream'! So when you think sweaty boobs, think KKK!"

Oh, OK. Maybe that's why they aren't doing it. Touche, Upton and friends. Touche. Looks like you've won this round. Carry on...


And you can carry on as well, my friends. And I'll catch you next week. Dry breasts and all. Have a good one...
