"I don't care if you like each other right now, but you will respect each other." -Coach Boone (Remember the Titans)
I'm a huge fan of this quote... and it actually rings true in my personal life. I've been an Oakland A's kid since I was a kid, while simultaneously strongly disliking their rivals across the bay... the San Francisco Giants.
In other words... I wasn't a very big supporter of The Humm Baby Giants during the 80's. But over the years, I learned to admire those exciting Roger Craig led teams featuring Will Clark, Mike LaCoss, Robby Thompson, Scott Garrelts, Kevin Mitchell, Matt Williams, and Mike Krukow.
So you can imagine how excited I was to find out that I won an on-card autograph of Mr. Craig in The Snorting Bull's 500th post giveaway.
I never realized that Roger Craig played for the Brooklyn Dodgers... let alone that he was split-finger specialist who had a twelve year career that included three World Series Championships. Oh... the things we learn from cardboard.
Thank you Mr. Bracke for the awesome autograph and congratulations on reaching and surpassing 500 blog posts.
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
