Pictorial countdown to Opening Day 2011, starring various Dallas/Foat Wuth sports stars past and present.
Not a DFW star, but THE #42 in the world of baseball, Jackie Robinson.
…and a former local #42, the could-have-been-great Roy Tarpley of the Dallas Mavericks. Dude couldn’t stay off the dope and got booted from the NBA. What a waste of pure eff!ng basketball talent.
For the first time in my baseball life, The Baseball Gods have bestowed upon yours truly a mercifully short off-season. Don’t get me wrong, hockey has done a very admirable job of sustaining me through The Bad Time the last coupla years, but brother, it just ain’t baseball.
Pitchers and Catchers, come hither, The Baseball Gods-Uh hath summoned thee!
