In honor of Veteran's Day. Thank you to veterans here, there and everywhere for preserving our American way of life which, among many other much more important things, allows us to blow off steam arguing politics, sports, etc. on our favorite band's website.

I admire my grandmother. A good christian woman and a beautiful person. I always think when I have tough times in my life or things arent going good..how would my grandma handle it?
A great role model for me , and I always try and reach to that level.

Cool cool cool -- tried cutting & pasting a photo of my old hero Rocky Colavito, am useless around computers tho
Ken "The Hawk" Harrelson 1 time rode a mule (CharlieO ) -- around the field when he played in KC -- bareback too, & he was bucking & everything -- 1 of Charlie Finley's brainstorms - 4 some reason that's what the Uek pic reminds me of -- it's a great one, he's hanging on for dear life w/a death grip around CharlieO's neck & stuff
Great ones, thanks alloak41!

I Loved Rocky!
1 complaint tho alloak
u come up short bro
...He Ain't In His Indians Uniform!

Rocky was all the **** in Cleve -- then he was traded to Det. for Harvey Kuenn (59 mayb?) -- longtime bradcaster Ken Coleman in his book recalled the big furor/uproar among fans, who called into radio stations protesting etc
but that was Rocky -- sorta had that Tony C charisma
but he did come back to Cleveland & that's when I remember him -- he & DaddyWags (Leon Wagner), great 1-2 punch -- 3B Max Alvis, Yankee killer/1B Fred Whitfield ec...

so thanks man -- but next time, in Cleve uni, 2nd stint please...

Guessing yagotta have a PhotoBucket account of some sort to post photos?
I kno I kno -- "No Stephen you gotta join the 21st century..."(hehe) -- or at least learn computer basics "lol"

Gotta mention Lou too -- the lucky **** er, he stuck out his glove blinded by the sun in RF Oct 1978 -- & caught the ball hehe -- the pics rock bro

yo, jszfunk

though an Indy fan and thus, you must pay the price of inviting the Patriots to your humble environ Sunday night by getting your lunch handed to you, absolutely awesome that you posted your grandmother.

very cool, my man.

and with Stephen that I'm somewhat technologically stunted and still not with the program, otherwise I'd post pics of Secreteriat, Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali.

You guys RAWK -- straight up/hands down fo sure --
that's the one fanfrom71 -- it's in his autobiography from 1970 or so too -- way cool -- the Hawk in 1968 became almost as popular as Yaz was in 67 -- had a great year in an othrwise n/g season, was colorful, wore the Nehru suits, hung out w/Derek Sanderson/Joe Namath, drove the decked-out dune buggy etc -- there was even a song (I think) on the radio about the Hawk

it was a pissah the day he was traded to Indians April 69 -- shah-kah -- fans picketed Fenway in protest, w/placards & stuff -- he was pissed & retired for a few days, but was talked back -- ya the Hawk was all the **** in 68 for the Sawx

Yep that's Rocky in all his glory -- he looks cooler in his Tribe uni no doubt about it
becksbolero -- awesome -- then & now -- in his 1st stint w/Tribe -- it rips b
I hear ya bro (piacere) -- I'll learn how sometime too -- can't top this stuff tho, awesome
good weekend

I think he's quoted as saying Jordan is the best football player he ever coached. Is that correct?

I'm not sure about that quote, but I have it on real good authority that in Bryant's final years - as his attention span was decreasing - during tough games, when the defense was getting pounded, he'd shout, "PUT LEE ROY IN THERE!"

EDIT: I think Bear did say Lee Roy was the best - but he used superlatives to describe others similarly: "Joe Namath - the best athlete I ever coached ... . He did once ay about Lee Roy, "if the running back stays within the two sidelines - Lee Roy will get him!".
