Reggie ! Reggie ! Reggie !

No that fan chant was not created for Reggie Miller who was great in his sport but for the great  Mr October , HOF , Reggie Martinez Jackson . Who owns five championship rings with Oakland and the Yankees . One of the greatest homerun hitter ever who did it naturally without the aid of performance enhancing drugs . Love him or hate him the man was a true showman and a champion . As a fan of baseball I loved Reggie Jackson for his game , and what he stood for during a time when blacks couldn't sleep in certain hotels , nor eat at certain restaurants playing the game they loved . I love and respect what he is doing today for the youth in giving back reaching out to help those that need it the most . I applaud him for speaking out against the PED users like A-Rod being honest about his own feelings and mine that their records are tarnished because of it . I'm sure there are more Hall of Fame baseball greats who feel the same way but are not speaking out for fear of being reprimanded by those very organizations they work for in some small capacity . How can you respect players who only used to enhance their homerun stats . Only a handful use PED to win championships Clemens and Petitis to name a few . Sosa , McGuire , and Canseco did it to change their stats because they never won anything other than Homerun Derby . Shame on the New York Yankee organization for suspending Mr October from the clubhouse and being around the players for speaking the truth about A-Rod not being HOF worthy becauseof his admission to using PED . SHAME ON THEM !!!

Good rant/blog, Chosen Few.

Usually, you are nowhere close to lucid but you make a lot of sense today. Mr. October is getting the shaft for showing integrity.
