  1. We'll get to free agency in a moment ... ... do you want to know the best high school outfield in history? McClymond's High School had Curt Flood, Vada Pinson, and Frank Robinson playing at the same time. Some guy named Bill Russell also played on their basketball team. --- Jul 12, 2011 - "How Curt Flood Changed Baseball and Killed his Career in the Process" by Allen Barra on theatlantic.com Dec 3, 2019 - "Curt Flood Set Off the Free-Agent Revolution 50-Years Ago after Refusing a Trade to the Phillies" by Ronald Blum on inquirer.com
  2. I don't care what people say about Robert Griffin III being a "bust" - he was a *great* athlete and college football player, whose career was basically ended because he wasn't properly trained to play in the NFL, and because he was left in a game when he was so badly injured that he could barely walk. When I first saw Griffin's highlight video coming out of Baylor, I could not believe the things I was seeing: plays such as Griffin running to his left, then stopping on a dime and throwing a 50-yard laser cross-field to a receiver sprinting down the *right* sideline for a touchdown. Du
  3. I hope the Lerner's reverse their thinking and spring big time for a contract for Anthony Rendon. He is on a hot streak and knocking the starch out of the ball. Right now he leads the majors in batting average and RBI' s and is near the top for total bases, doubles, runs, OB% and slugging %. He has won a couple of games with walk off hits. Rendon's agent is the agent for Bryce Harper so he knows the Lerner's tendencies. Come on Lerner's. Sooner or later you are getting a big fat local TV payoff from the Orioles. Now is the time to share it with Anthony Rendon.
  4. I wonder how many people know that the Big 12 Conference consists of only 10 schools. If you'd like to visit all ten by car, here's the shortest route (that I could think of): <--- This is a trip down I-35, with West Virginia University at the beginning, and Texas Tech at the end. Imagine being a WVU Mountaineer, and having to play road games in this conference.
  5. Rogers Hornsby's career batting average of .358 is second only to Ty Cobb's (.367). During the decade of the 1920s, Hornsby hit .317 once, which was the only time he hit lower than .361. Look at this decade of hitting: 1920 - .370 1921 - .397 1922 - .401 1923 - .384 1924 - .424 --> The highest single-season batting average in post-1900 MLB history 1925 - .403 --> The 4th RBI Crown he won in the 1920s 1926 - .317 1927 - .361 1928 - .387 1929 - .380 --> The 7th time he hit over 40 home runs in the 1920s, leading the NL 4 times, and the 9th time he led the le
  6. Does anyone know how to add your AA Advantage Number after you've purchased an e-ticket, but before the entire flight has been completed? I want to add my account for an existing flight, so I can get mileage credit, but don't know how to do it. --- With American Airlines, domestic and Canada, baggage fees are: 1) 1st bag: $25 2) 2nd bag: $35 Checked Baggage Policy --- Opinions, feedback, and suggestions are encouraged for new forums, sub-forums, and other ideas - example: For each airline, I'm thinking of adding a sub-forum for their own frequent-flier p
  7. This world needs more people like Robert F. Smith. The donation may sound small in relation to his worth, but it is fully 1% of his wealth - that is substantial and meaningful by any measure. "Who Is Robert F. Smith? Learn More about the Billionaire whose Generosity Shocked a Graduating Class" by Alejandro de la Garza on time.com
  8. The only place I know of there? Philly's Phamous I suspect I'll be heading to SA in December. Anyone have suggestions?
  9. Why has Laura Bush failed to prevail on one of her Tex-Mex chef buddies from Austin to move to Washington? I have a trip coming up to Austin. Though I have my places I like to go, I wonder if Rockwellians have some to share? This trip I am staying downtown, next one I'll be lucky to be anywhere near Austin! Thanks!
  10. This is perhaps the most important hour of television in history. CBS News interrupts "As the World Turns" at about the 10:00 point, and by the 45:00 point, Kennedy's death is essentially confirmed. Walter Cronkite was frantically trying to get a camera activated, and Dan Rather was corresponding from Dallas. The unfolding of events on television is nearly as newsworthy as the story itself. Still, this is up there with the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, and the only thing comparable in the past fifty years was 9/11 - I guess these are the three-biggest news events of my lifetime.
  11. Some people may not know what a centoid is; others will not know where the centroid is in Texas: The centroid is when you take a, e.g., cardboard representation of a state, or other irregularly shaped surface area, and balance it on the tip of a pencil. A circle, for example, has its centroid as "the center," which is obvious enough. With Texas, it isn't quite so easy, but it's easy enough. The centroid of Texas is about 15 miles NE of Brady. Here's Brady on a map: For our purposes, the centroid doesn't take into account things such as elevation; for other purposes, it doe
  12. I dismissed Mitch Trubisky having been drafted as the top quarterback in the 2016 NFL draft (with the #2 overall pick) as a boneheaded decision, but when some guy named Patrick Mahomes went as the second quarterback (with the #10 pick) ahead of Deshaun Watson (the #12 pick), I took it personally. The Trubisky pick was unwise, but Patrick Mahomes? This kid is *unbelievable*! Who knows whether he's going to last, but in just his second NFL season, he's the odds-on favorite for NFL MVP, and has as many touchdown passes this year as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers - combined! As much as I l
  13. President George H.W. and First Lady Barbara Bush (1925-2018) were married for 73 years. Nov 30, 2018 - "George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, Dies at 94" by Karen Tumulty on washingtonpost.com
  14. Glenn Corbett was "the guy who replaced George Maharis on Route 66." While watching "Same Picture, Different Frame," I wondered to myself how this impossibly handsome man could be relatively unknown in today's mind, so I did a little research, and found that Corbett played Zefram Cochrane (inventor of the warp drive!) in the "Star Trek" episode, "Metamorphosis." (Yes, that's Betty from "Father Knows Best.")
  15. I'm watching the Netflix series, "I Am a Killer," and SE1 EP2, "Killer in the Eyes of the Law," convicted Kenneth Foster, Jr. under the Texas "Law of Parties" statute, perhaps because Foster drove the car to a crime that resulted in a homicide that he claims was unplanned, and happened seventy-feet away. I'm not judging this law as "right" or "wrong"; merely presenting it to our readers. https://www.netflix.com/watch/80202432 You know, back when I was a young adult, I didn't care about any of this "human rights" stuff, because I never thought about it; now, I do. I've gotten so
  16. Yeah, Elvin: got to watch him while he was with the Bullets. Elvin had a variety of skills that contributed toward winning. While he played here the Bullets were in the NBA finals 3 times winning once. He shared big man responsibilities with Wes Unseld and those two made that team one of the best in the league over that era. Elvin was also a “black hole” as a shooter. Get him the ball in that down low position and he never passed back- shooting all the time. IIRC he was also “indestructible” virtually never missing games. Come to think of it. if he didn’t play with Unseld so long he
  17. The Date of this Dining Guide does not reflect its currency!

Voila! Your own free (kind of, sort of) app in less than 30 seconds! --- Please feel free to contact me with any typos, suggestions, corrections, or comments.

  18. "Electric Shock Delivered at Trial to Texas Defendant Results in Reversal of Conviction, Curb of Use on Stun Belts" by John Council on law.com Outside the presence of the jury, Gallagher warned Morris about any further outbursts. When Morris continued to speak, Gallagher ordered his bailiff to intervene by activating the stun belt attached to Morris’ body. “Are you going to follow the rules?” Gallagher asked Morris, according to the opinion. “I have a lawsuit pending against you,” Morris replied. “Hit him,” Gallagher said. After shocking Morris the first time, Gallaghe
  19. Trevante Rhodes won a Gold Medal for the USA in the 2009 Pan-American Junior Athletics Championships in the 4 x 100 Relay. A multi-sport athlete at Little Elm HS, he earned a scholarship to the University of Texas, and has since become, arguably, Little Elm's most famous alumnus, along with NFL player Cole Beasley.
  20. Although the Houston Texans are the only NFL franchise never to have played in a conference championship (they are the NFL's youngest franchise), they were the AFC South Division champions in 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016. With both J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson out for the 2017 season with injuries, it will be tough for the Texans this year, but look for them to come charging back next season, assuming these two men conquer their injuries. "Deshaun Watson, J.J. Watt, Bonding in Treatment Room (Video)" by Paul Jackiewicz on torotimes.com --- There's also one thing I don't unde
  21. Many people don't realize "The Singing Cowboy" was in professional rodeo, played some type of professional baseball, and was the owner of the California Angels from 1961 until 1997 (!) Here's Gene Autry on "What's My Line?" in 1953: This post is dedicated to Robert Power (1927-2017), father of DIShGo.
