Last week I thought things were starting to turn around. I really hope he keeps his head up and never forgets how much of an impact he has had and can still have... Promote this thread!

Originally posted by Big Bad I think it's time to safely consider Junior Griffey as a non-Hall of Famer. ... I remember buying an ESPN Baseball preview mag in '96 where they said we would be calling this particular time period "The Griffey Era" in Baseball. Now, I know full well the hyperbolic tendencies of ESPN, but at the time, I didn't know of anyone who disagreed with that proclamation.

"Junior Griffey out for the season..." And in other news, the sky is blue, ice is cold, and the desert is really dry. So I pranked him...to death.....with a tire iron!
I'm still gathering myself after yesterday, the worst day in Detroit sports history. I can only echo what has been said. Growing up, Ernie was a mainstay.
