I used to be a huge baseball fan.  I was born in PA but every year since I was 6 my church group made a trip to NY to watch the Yankees play, my favorite event of the year.  I met Winfield and Randolph and my favorite player of the day Donny Baseball.  The sport was fun to watch back then the players had character and they just seemed to have fun and care about the game.  The rocket in his early days Doc Gooden (pre drugs) guys like Gwynn and Ripken, even good ol Lenny Dykstra.  Now it seems like every moron in the league is a self obsessed moron.  The game is ruled by guys like Bonds and Manny Ramirez who pose for 5 minutes before the ball is out of the park.  I am not saying the talent isn't better, but please someone show me some heart.  A Rod is great but a prima donna.   I know this has all been said time and time again, but its taking the fun out of the game.  I enjoy teaching my daughter about the NFL and the players who are good guys that play hard, and showing her college basketball where they play with a purpose, but its tough to show a kid a guy who makes $15 million a year and doesn't play because of a hang nail.  So there is my rant for the week..  please someone in any ball park give the kids a show they will remember in 30 years.
