Roger Clemens Acquitted

...and you should not be surprised.  From the beginning of the trial, Roger Clemens legal team methodically picked apart the evidence against the multi time Cy Young Award winner and those closely following the trial knew where the decision was likely to go.

With all of this said, Clemens remains guilty of PED use in the court of public opinion and an informal poll on the street would likely paint Clemens as a PED user.  His acquittal won't change this.  Along with Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa, Clemens enters the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time under a cloud of controversy.  We rank him at number 2 on our list (behind Bonds) and if we had a vote would cast a yes in his direction.  We do understand why some pwople wouldn't.

LaDainian Tomlinson Retires

LaDainian Tomlinson will be rejoining the San Diego Chargers with the exclusive reasoning of retiring as a member of the team he achieved his greatest success in.  He will be retiring with what we consider Hall of Fame credentials and a potential first ballot entry.

With an MVP award (2006), five Pro Bowls, 13,684 career Rushong Yards, and 162 total Touchdowns, the former Purdue Boilermaker is retiring in the top five of many key career offensive categories.  Considered one of the good guys on oand off the field, we can't imagine that he won't be ranked in our top three when he is eligible for the Hall of Fame in five years.  Ww know that once he becomes he ranked by us, he won't stay on the list long.

Tito Ortiz named to the UFC HOF

Dana White and Tito Ortiz are far from the best of friends, but this has not stopped the latter from being named as the eight inductee to the UFC Hall of Fame.   Ortiz is the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and is the current record holder for the most fights under the UFC banner.  It is expected that he will be inducted on July 6th, the day before he has his final fight at UFC 148 against longtime rival Forrest Griffin.

With this news, we wonder if it is time to start ranking UFC as a Notinhalloffame category.  Any thoughts on this?

Thomas Hearns headlines the new Boxing HOF Class

We here at would like to officially congratulate the newest class of inductees to the International Boxing Hall of Fame.   This year's class is headlined by Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns who held championships in various weight classes and whose clash with Marvin Hagler is still considered legendary.   Hearns is joined by Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson who was a star in the Flyweight division and was the first African American to win a major championship in that weight class.  Broadcaster Al Bernstein was also named as was trainer, Freddie Roach and writer, Michael Katz. 

Perhaps the widest known in this year's class is ring announcer Michael Buffer whose signature pre game vocals of "Let's Get Ready to Rumble" may be more widely known than any of the others inducted.

Again, we congratulate them all!
