Tree. Journalist: Some Assembly Required” at a Donald Trump rally. It would appear that this is not the only reporter with a Baseball Hall of Fame ballot that may not be voting for Curt Schilling. Jon Heyman, who works as an insider for MLB Netowrk and for the FanRag Sports Network spoke to…

Well, that is one less vote for Curt Schilling. Boston Herald columnist, Dan Shaughnessy has stated that he will not be voting for Curt Schilling following a tweet that praised violence towards journalists.  Specifically, he tweeted a picture at a Trump rally of a man wearing a t-shirt that read, “Rope. Tree. Journalist: Some Assembly Required” and captioned it “Ok, so much awesome here…” “Count me out on Curt Schilling.  I have held my nose and voted for the Big Blowhard in recent years (11-2 in postseason, ridiculous walk/strikeout ratio), and he was up to 52.3 percent (75 percent required)…
It did not get a lot of attention but Kevin Martin quietly retired from playing professional basketball this week.  He made the announcement in a paid advertisement in his local newspaper, the Zanesville Times Recorder. Out of Western Carolina, Martin was chosen 26th overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2004 Draft.  In his third season, Martin was the full time Shooting Guard for Sacramento and had a very healthy 20.2 Points Per Game Average.  The year following, Martin would increase his average to 23.7 PPG, and finished 6th Overall, the highest he would ever finish and he was considered…
We generally don’t pay that much attention to the Grammy Hall of Fame, but we have always found it fascinating which songs they feel worthy to enter their Hall.

They are: Arlo Guthrie - "The City of New Orleans" The Beach Boys - "I Get Around" Billie Holiday - Lady Sings the Blues Blind Willie McTell - "Statesboro Blues" Bonnie Raitt - "I Can't Make Your Love Me" Cab Calloway And His Orchestra - "(Hep-Hep!) The Jumpin' Jive" David…
As you all know we are working on our Top 50 Players from each major North American Team.  This will eventually bleed into a look at how each one of them honors their respective former players/executives with retired numbers, rings of honor, franchise halls of fame etc.  This brings us to a huge announcement from the San Antonio Spurs, who have decreed that they will be retiring the number #21 of Tim Duncan on December 18. With all due respect to the “The Admiral”, David Robinson, Tim Duncan is the best player that the Spurs have ever had.  A nineteen…

On his official Facebook page, Mick Foley campaigned for Vader to get into the WWE Hall of Fame.  Our apologies, as generally we do not include an entire quote form a Facebook page, but we thought it would be relevant in this case. From Mick Foley: “IT'S TIME...TO PUT VADER IN THE HALL OF FAME I have been talking with Leon White the past few weeks, so I knew the news might be coming. But seeing it in print this morning was a shock nonetheless. Leon is dying. He has been told by doctors that he may have less than…
