We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility

I love baseball.

I was thinking to myself tonight, how could I have booed Reggie Jackson. The man is/was a legend. The thing I realise most is he didn't need to shoot up. He loved hot rods but he did not need horsepower to hit home runs. He never hit more than 47 in any given year yet hit 563 lifetime. Yeah he had ego but he wasn't half as arrogant as Barry Bonds. Hell he even played with his dad Bobby.

What is wrong with baseball you ask...I am not sure. I booed Reggie when he played with the California Angels against the Brewers in 1982 but only because he was a rival.

Reggie, I am sorry.
