#TheNatural #CooperstownBound Not Only did Ken Griffey Jr. make it into the HOF (Hall Of Fame) on his first bid, he received the most votes EVER (99.3%) eclipsing Mets’ legendary pitcher Tom Seaver (98.84%)! He received 437 of the 440 possible votes by the BWAA. Griffey’s swing was so natural, and field play so graceful, that when you thought of baseball your first picture was Griffey! He did it with his bat notching seven Silver Slugger awards, and on the ground receiving an amazing 10 consecutive Gold Gloves! Griffey also went to 11 consecutive All-Star… In a steroid latent era, he was considered holy
Perhaps the most uplifting story in the NFL came on Sunday afternoon when shoe-in HOF QB Peyton Manning returned to the Denver Broncos! He came into the game in the second half, and helped them preserve their #1 seed throughout the Playoffs instead of dropping to #5 (a wild-card spot) with a nail-biting 27-20 win over the San Diego Chargers! What made it all the more epic was playing in front of the hometown crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High #Denver! It turned out that the
#UpstateNY Pine Bush and Sullivan County Community College graduate, Cleanthony Early, who went onto Wichita State and the NBA NY Knicks was shot in the right knee and robbed of two chainz outside a Queens club at about 4:30am this morning by masked robbers?! He was with his girlfriend in an UberCar Taxi when a group of cars trapped them in… six suspects proceeded to the vehicle and asked him for his chainz! Early gave up two chainz, but it seems that when he wouldn’t give up his gold teeth they proceeded to shoot him in the right knee! They crooks also
#TheSplashBros Steph Curry is a victim of over-acting lol, but come to balling he is the best player in NBA right now, hands down! Tonight, the Golden State Warriors continued their winning ways and undefeated winning streak (22-0) by beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-98! Net’s Brook Lopez displayed his brawn and cat like reflexes lol, while Curry was draining tre’s! The Nets kept up with the Warriors into the fourth quarter until #SplashBros took off down the stretch!
On Sunday afternoon, 5-time NBA Champion and 17-time All-Star Kobe Bryant, who broke into the NBA at the tender age of 18, announced that he will retire at the conclusion of this season! Kobe is an international icon known worldwide! He actually grew up in Italy, as his dad (Joe Bryant) played professionally overseas from 1984 to 1992! He will retire being the only player in NBA history to play 20 years for the same franchise, the LA Lakers, and third all-time in scoring!
The NY Yankees #upgraded their outfield by trading catcher John Ryan Murphy to the Minnesota Twins for center fielder Aaron Hicks earlier today. Hicks is a switch-hitter with a rifle of an arm in the outfield, even clocking 100mph catching players sneaking to home plate, and has some speed on the base path…Yankees’ trusty left fielder Brett Gardner may be the next to go; after a solid start and All-Star appearance, he went through a serious slump down the stretch last season.
The NY Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, 8-3, tonight to advance to the World Series and maybe win their first Championship since the 86′ Amazin’ Mets!!! The Mets swept the Cubs in the ALCS, and Daniel Murphy broke a postseason record hitting homeruns in six consecutive games! Murphy was also the unanimous ALCS MVP after hitting four homeruns in the sweep series! Back to the Future 2 was just a vision, and the Mets made sure it stayed in the movie script lol.
Former NBA Star and Queens native Lamar Odom, 35, may need to have a kidney transplant due to his near death night out at the Love Ranch South cathouse in Las Vegas 10 days ago?! According to the escorts who reported the incident, Odom had taken 10 tabs of a sexual performance enhancement drug called “Reload” along with kokain. He was reportedly unconscious… Even though everything is looking positive for Odom, he still remains on dialysis. If his kidneys…
#GoAmazin Honestly, I am a Yankees fan, but I still got love for the Mets! The NY Mets finished off the LA Dodgers 3-2 tonight in game 5 of the division series to advance to NLCS! Daniel Murphy deeking deserted third base on a defensive shift was perhaps the play of the game, as he scored on a sac-fly on a next play to tie the game at 2! Murphy followed up in the sixth inning smoking a solo shot to put the Mets ahead for good 3-2!
The NY Mets posted a quite impressive 13-7 win over the dastardly Dodgers, last night, in the postseason Playoff Citi-Field debut! Over 44 thousand were in attendance! The Mets were excited to play the first game at Citi-Field in the Playoffs, and had pride riding hard for their injured second baseman Ruben Tejada who was decisively taken out (leg broken) in game 2 by Chase Utley’s ‘tackle’ slide! Curtis Granderson and Yoenis Cespedes teed off on the Dodgers making it look like tee ball instead of Major League Baseball!
