How is that being a douche? These women are sleeping with him after one night and know going in it's not going in be a serious long term relationship. He gets them a car so they can get home rather than just kicking them to the curb. They can sell the memorabilia and make a buck if they want.

Then there is the whole point about the story may not even be real. No one has taken a pic of one of these baskets?

Andy was a terrific player. He's still one of the best defensive CF I've watched play. He came from an era when players played hard because it wasn't all $$$ that was important.

I actually had 2 favourite players.
Reggie Jackson becuase he had an enormous ego and could usually back up what he professed he'd do.
Dale Murphy, because he was the consumate professional and nicest guy in baseball. He had a sense of humour and endured some of the worst Braves teams ever. Oh, by the way, he also wone back-to-back NL MVPs.

04-18-2012, 10:13 AM
Mike Schmidt in my youth and Dykstra as a teenager. He may be a criminal but he was fun to watch on early 90's Phil's. My favorite non Phillies were Ricky Henderson and Canseco/McGuire A's era

My favorite non Redsox are Frank Thomas and Griffey and Maddux Sammy Sosa and Jeff Bagwell and Tony Grynn and way back Joe Carter that had to be best moment in sports that homerun.

I hate to show my age here, but honestly when I was growing up I only had a few channels and one of them, even though I am in Indiana, was WGN. So I got Cubs games and
Bulls games. Obviously Bulls and Pacers too. Not on the same channel of course lol.

So... as a kid my favorite players were Andre Dawson of da Cubs, Jim Harbaugh as a QB for my colts. I got to see all of Jordans career and I'm glad for that. Can't leave out my man Reggie I can't dribble left handed but who cares I can shoot Miller.

Those are mine.

Wille McGee because he was just so darn nice to us when we would go to the games. Ozzie was a close second, followed by probably the secret weapon.

I also liked Vince Coleman despite his controversies over the years. I had a tendency to like speedy guys (and still do) probably because I'm a huge sloth

Roberto Alomar.
Loved the attitude, defense and offense.

I also followed Henry Rodriguez when he was with the Expos. Loved to see the Oh Henry wrappers thrown on the field after a homerun. I dont think theres anything like that in the MLB anymore.

Griffey was FUN to follow before Cincinnati. I dont think there was a dude to ever come up in the majors with as much hype and potential like this guy.

Real Classy (http://boston.barstoolsports.com/random-thoughts/derek-jeter-gives-his-groupies-signed-memorabilia-after-he-bangs-em/)...He's a douche.

You sound like your girl got a gift basket from Jeter...

That's actually a really classy move. You want him to marry every girl he bangs?
