Participation Required: Best and Worst of Sports
If you hate all sports, feel free to explain why, because participation is required!
Best: Greatest baseball team? Colorado Rockies. In fact, they are the greatest team of any sport ever. I bleed purple. Why? Because I love Colorado. The Rockies have a man in the team who debuted in MLB as a Rockies batter. He will retire from that position likely this year, and retire from baseball. He started in 1997, hit to date 354 Home Runs and 1346 RBIs in 7582 at bats. He was in contention for 6 MVPs, but was MVP all six times in my book, been an All Star 5 times, has 4 Silver Sluggers, and 3 Gold Gloves. As a young man, he hung out with another celebrity in Colorado, Peyton Manning. They fancied playing football together, but man, am I glad he chose Baseball. The greatest MLB player in the history of Major League Baseball is none other than Todd Helton.
Worst: I hate the Dodgers. They can all be struck with festering boils. They buy their way into things, and still come up short. They stuff their heads full of roids, and award players who do such nonsense.
Manny Ramirez is the most vile human on the earth.
Also, The NY Mets, because Phil Naessens likes them. He will have to explain why.
Best: Football team, BRONCOS! I used to hate football. It was because I grew up in a football family, where you got the heck home from church on time to watch the game, and then everyone lost their voice about half way through yelling at the TV, and sometimes furniture went from one side of the living room to the other in protest for bad calls. Almost as if throwing the couch at the TV hard enough would make the ref feel the protest. My mother and father were legendary in their arm-chair quarterbacking. People came to watch them rather than the game.
But, as years and years away from home allowed me to find my own interests, I began to watch football, much to my wife’s disappointment. She hates football, thinks they are a bunch of overpaid gang bangers.
We had Elway, the greatest ever. We had Tebow whatever his name was. We now have Manning. We own this planet with sports.
Worst: Oakland Raiders, because they used to be the LA Raiders, and I HATE LA. Especially the Dodgers.
Does anyone else play golf? I do. No fun to watch though.
Whatever, sports, or anti-sports, here we go, participation required!
