Sports - Hall of Shame Fame

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. When it comes to the Hall of Fame for any sport, the one that takes the cake is baseball.  For some reason, making this Hall is above and beyond the rest.  Well I'd venture to say Hockey is a close second at least in my book.

When players do not make their eligible years, it recently is because they were not great players. That is debatable.  A line has to be drawn somewhere.  But then again, it is just a museum, so does it really matter?  Well it matters because controversy sells tickets and creates news and buzz.  But over all, your life will not change if your your favorite player does not make the Hall of Fame.  It just won't, no matter how bitter you are at all the silly sports writers (especially the east coast scum writers).

The other notable players to not make the Hall are considered cheaters from the steroid era.  I won't mention their names because I'm not a fan of those players.   I was at times, but when they juiced up...forget it.

A question someone posed the other day...is when a player wears contacts or glasses, is that cheating?  Well it does give him an advantage, but in theory it makes him equal to other players.  It doesn't give him extra above and beyond strength.  Well then what if juicing makes me equivalent to the Mendoza line.  Does that make it just as bad?  Something to think about.

Heck these guys not getting in for using drugs and cheating...well the irony is, if they were rock stars they'd probably be shoe ins for their silly Hall of Fame.  Funny how we praise the work of artists, but athletes....well that ain't cool now is it?

  2. To me, there's cheating, and then there's cheating. Putting a scuff or a loogie on a ball, taking an upper, or filling your bat with superballs is gamesmanship. I would prefer it didn't happen, but whatever. Teams do stuff too-leaving the infield grass longer for certain teams, etc.

    To me, ingesting a substance that grows your cap size and shrinks your junk is a completely different animal. With all of the concussions in football, you'd think they'd make a bigger deal about it there.
