Odd. Not sure why the DV's? Wasn't making a value judgement of or dissing on the lives of Clemente, White or Bryant at all.
The closest comparison wouldn't be Clemente. He was still playing. I would say the closest comparison would be when Reggie White died in a car accident. Very similar levels of skill, dominance and place in the pantheon of their sport and both just recently retired but still looming largely over their respective sports.
Let them have their delusions. As it turns out, our teeth and nails are sharper and more lethal than theirs are when both are bared at the same time and place. Chop it up any way they like and it still leads back to the same place: We are just flat out better than them.
That's gotta be painfully difficult to cope with, tbh.
Damn. Really? That's gonna be a bare-knuckle bar fight on a Saturday night.
LOL, Joe Torre won the Pinstripe Bowl a few times, right?
LOL. Claude Giroux.
The best part is the Michigan claim to academic excellence for the past 100+ years, and then in 2016, they all magically became too dumb to understand basic Geometry on a 4th down play. But hey, at least all of us "inbred, truck-driving dumbass hillbillies" here in Ohio can grasp the concept of a line that intersects a plane.
Well, yeah. I mean, we waited TEN YEARS for this article!!!
Truth. Tackles on 1/8 of total snaps played is more than pretty solid for a 4-3 DE. This dude is going to tear it up somewhere!
Another Steeler fan here. Fuck Art Modell. Forever.
We're not really even a full step behind anyone. We are more like a photo finish behind maybe 2-3 teams.
That description of Fleming screamed two words to me:
Whoa! Joey Lawrence.
"The Earth? She's a flatta likea pancake!"
"Oh, a no! She's a rounda likea ball!"
Love that old Looney Tunes short cartoon!
We're the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse!
