What about the Goose? Not sure I saw the story. Goose Gossage?
Yup. Rich "Goose" Gossage. Ninth time was the charm...he was the single player elected to Cooperstown this year.
McGuire garnered the same number of votes he got last year. Which wasn't nearly enough. What do you think his fate will be, ultimately? Will he get in?
For McGuire's induction? I don't think so. 2010 he'll 'only' have been eligible for four years (five years ago, if you'd suggested to anyone that he wouldn't make first ballot, they'd have laughed at you). It's gonna take a lot longer than that for the sting of his non-testimony to wear off.
Funny thing is, though -- I really think that if he'd been open before congress, most (not all, but most) of the ripples would have passed under the bridge by now. He'd be getting more that >30% of the vote, anyway.
Anyone who played for 22 years, had some sweet side burns, and is named Goose - deserves respect.....
Do a google search on best sports nicknames, and ESPN came up with a top 10....
The "Goose" was no where to be found.
My only hope is that the name of Goose Gossage was so popular that it didn't qualify as a nickname.
Meh...what's in a name? That, which we call a rose....
in the end it was his arm that got him in. How many people really think of him as Rich (or Rick or Richard or whatever) Gossage. Lists like that are pretty arbitrary, anyway.
Now that I've shoved my foot in it, I prolly oughta go look up the list, huh?

Can anyone comment here on this. After 20 years of marriage, I am so tired of it and want out. I have actually been sick of it for many years but just dealt with it. I have 3 kids 14 and 11. Has anyone ever gone through this, where marriage just wasn't for you? I am beating...

What are your thoughts on Transgender and the U.S. Military?I just cannot settle on a right or wrong here. It seems that morally both sides can be argued. Medical conditions are perfectly OK to exclude some people from some vocations. I wonder if there is a real rational basis for this exclusion....
