Well, damn...I completely missed his FIRST book....anyone have the title? I miss Heenan...that throat cancer really ruined his voice. The first time I ever saw him in person was at WM X7, doing guest commentary for the Gimmick Battle Royal (before his health problems). He walked over to some dork leaning over the railing and did the classic "I'm gonna let you think that I'm gonna shake your hand and then pull it away as you reach for it" routine. After 42987574 times, it's still funny as hell. And to embarrass one dopey fan in front of 68,000 Astro-domers.....classic.

I'd say it would be worth asking about how he will work with Tony Schiavone again. Granted, its for that 'Legends' video game, but still... after all the terrible things he said about Schiavone (and probably justifiably so)? I know he gave an answer in the press release ('I'm a professional'), but seriously, tell me there won't be a lot of tension there....
He was on the Todd Wright show last night. Simply a pleasure to listen to. You can tell the respect he has for the business just by listening to him talk. Enjoy the interview.

Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.
Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.
