Florida High School Pitcher Goes for 5th Straight No Hitter

A feel good story....it's this place and this time....deal with it all you negative responding "wish it was me" idiots! Turn back the clock....enjoy the moment...so what if he doesn't "play baseball for a living"! For Christ's sake, enjoy life for what it is..not what YOU wish it would have been for YOU!

Mark "The Bird" Fidrych Passes Away...

I remember his explosive beginning on the baseball scene! As a lifelong Tiger fan, he was like a cool breeze on those summer days that he pitched. I'll miss him but will always have the memories.

Matt Steven can't see the hoop. But he'll still take the last shot.

For all those caught up in the "me" factor, this is quite inspiring! Kudos to those who were willing to put "it's all about me" aside, and remind us all who's important, whether it's sports or life in general. We're ALL important and deserve a chance to shine!

One coach still knows more than all the others combined. And he's been retired for three decades.

Kudos to Mr. Wooden! He's in the coaching "top tier", and he's alone!

Legendary Wrestler linked to slaying of 97 year old man

but, in addition, good grief, Vern has to be in his 80's by now. I watched him wrestle in the 1950's on TV! (Along with Hans Schmidt, Hans Shnable, The Mighty Atlas, Gorgeous Gorge, Antonino Rocca etal...ah, those were the days..channel 9 at 11pm. 2 Falls with a 30 minute time limit!)

I agree with BoKnows...the sleeper if applied correctly will cause one to pass out, as it stops blood flow to the brain.

Coach Indicted in Teen Athlete's Heat Exhaustion Death

What an outrage! Having played organized football under many different coaches in my younger years this is inexcusable! This "coach" can express his distress over the outcome until the cows come home and it doesn't change the result......his stupidity and lack of common sense caused the death of this young man. The only thing he got correct in this entire matter was his admission that he will have to "live with this for the rest of my life."
