Top 5 Reasons to NOT be upset and panic

Written by , Posted in General

Well, I have to admit that I was bummed about seeing Prior get rocked by that line drive. I, like most people, panicked and thought horrible thoughts. However, the more I rolled it around my mind, the more I became OK with the situation. I know it seeps absurd, but I am honestly fine with it. So, to help ease your pain, I’d like to present my Top 5 Reasons to NOT be upset, from the home offices in do me, NC. 5. No Offense, but it’s the offense that is the problem, not the pitching.

Written by , Posted in General

Today I just happened to run into an article written by Teddy Greenstein. It compares Santo and Huges to Rooney and Farmer and gives a split screen of the calling the game. Here is a snip of the article. Be sure to click the link and the end and read the whole thing. Then, let those comments fly on your opinions of Pat and Ron or John Rooney and Ed Farmer.
