Not in Hall of Fame News

Maybe we are being optomistic, but we envision us being invited to attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.  Okay, we are being VERY optimistic, but considering that the Rock Hall is what we started our site on, we will cling to this pipe dream.  Tonight Axl Rose will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, even though he has stated through a publicist that he is declining the invitation. Rose waited until today (the induction ceremony) to announce his intentions.  The Guns N' Roses frontman issued the following: To: The Rock And Roll Hall…

Steve Stamkos: 60 Goals

We would like to congratulate Steve Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning for his 60th goal of the season.  This is the 39th time an NHL player has hit this mark, and the first time for Stamkos.  In only his fourth season, we aren't looking to put him in the Hockey Hall of Fame, but he would like to state that he is carving out a serious path towards it.
It has been announced that Green Day will be the inductors for Guns and Roses at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I have to wonder.....Why? I am not certain how that selection is decided, but is it just us, or does this seem out of place? With all due respect to Green Day, their musical style differs from GNR, and they are not Hall of Famers. Really, I could go on and on about this, but this then leads me to think that in the future this site will spend some time disecting the inductors for future…
WWE Hall of Famer, Chief Jay Strongbow passed away today at the age of 83. Born, Joe Scarpa, Strongbow achieved his greatest in ring success when he joined the World Wide Wrestling Federation. He would become a top draw and a multi-time Tag Team Champion there. Later, he would be a long time figure behind the scenes in the promotion. This is a major loss for the WWE family.
It was already announced that Don Nelson had made the Basketball Hall of Fame, as had several others from other committees. The 2012 Basketball Hall of Fame Class is now complete: Reggie Miller has joined the Hall of Fame. The Indiana Pacers star should have been a lock last year, but for reasons we are not sure of, he had to wait another year. No matter, he is in where he belongs. Miller is joined by Ralph Sampson and Jamaal Wilkes, who were both ranked (although in very different spots) on our list. Sampson's inclusion makes us wonder if the…
It has been released that Rick Pitino will not make it to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Pitino's snub is likely only temporary, as he is certainly a future entry. What does puzzle us, is the amount of leaks that happen, taking away the excitement of an announcement. This one of the MANY ways in which the Basketball Hall of Fame trails behind the other major sports.
We would like to congratulate Don Nelson, whom has been named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Nelson had over 1,200 career wins and is considered the best coach never to win a championship. We are eagerly awaiting to see who else gets in.

Coming soon.....

So.... what's coming soon?Now that our favorite time of year is over, our intention is to unveil revisions on what has already occurred.  By March 1st, look for the revised Rock and Roll listBy March 15, look for the Baseball and Football lists to both be revisedAlso, a major section will be unveiled this May.  We think you will like it very much!Until then, stay tuned, and keep checking us out!
We are a week away from Wrestlemania, and as such close to the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Overall, we are very happy with this class, but even happier with whom will be doing the inductions. The main attraction will be the induction of Adam Copeland, otherwise known as Edge. The former multi time Heavyweight Champion is being inducted much sooner than expected, but following a career ending injury it was clear that it was time for him to retire. A week after he did so, Edge appeared in from of a Smackdown crowd where they spontaneously chanted "Hall…

RIP: Bert Sugar

Just two weeks ago, I was listening to my local Sports Radio station where Bert Sugar was a guest discussing his memories of the first Ali-Frazier fight. Sugar was there covering the event, and to those who followed the sport, he was considered as the premier writer of the sport. Sugar died today following Cardiac Arrest at the age of 75, and I can't help but think that another part of boxing died with him. It is no secret, that boxing is a sport on life support, and we likely won't be bothered to create Notinhalloffame section for it. With…
