some honors for our friends

Barry Larkin was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I guess he played in Cincinnati for a while or something, but that’s not important. Barry Larkin, Michigan Wolverine, is in Cooperstown. That’s all you need to know.

The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association named Mario Impemba the Michigan Sportscaster of the Year. Mario has swag.

Sorry guys. I just don’t know.

  1. I am glad for Larkin, but if he is a Hall of Famer, so too is Tram. I would like to see Morris in te Hall as well, although I acknowledge that the case for him is dicier.

    All hail Mario!

  2. Obviously I have to Vote for Tram! How can Barry get in but Tram can’t?? Just seems wrong!!

  3. Morris has more wins in the decade of the ’80’s than any other pitcher, plus has three World Serires rings. Didn’t have a great relationship with the press, so he’s not in. Time for a change?
    The Tigers should take it upon themselves to honor Tram and Whitaker-maybe staues ‘turning two’ or jersey retirements. Seeing Schef wearing #3 a few years ago made me throw up in my mouth a little bit…
