Way to go Royals!

It's been a while since they have played for all the marbles 29 years to be exact but after sweeping through the other 3 American League opponents they sit and wait to see if they will be playing the Giants or the Cardinals in the World Series! Congratulations on an outstanding playoff run! 8-0 so far.  Here is a reprint of my post when I saw the Royals and Orioles play in late April didn't know then this would br the ALCS match-up. In the second picture check out the Eric Hosmer autograph on the celebration card looked like yesterday.

Does the NFL get it?

As I sit here today watching games and all the advertising I wonder?  Do they get it?  A new NFL Shop Commercial the Vikings family which features at the end the Steelers which is fine except they use a kid looking up to Ben Roethlisberger and the kid becomes a Steelers fan Really ........ Really this is the same Big Ben that had the incident in a bathroom hell I don't know what happened in that bathroom with the young lady but after the two weeks the NFL has just had would you really use Ben in any advertising????  then I see another advertisement that still features Adrian Peterson really who are the marketing and advertising heads that are not screening and pulling advertisements that have the players at the root of all the B.S. that has been filling the air waves the last 2 weeks.  Just another sign that there is no one in control at the NFL offices and changes have to be made.

Mike Rathje & Joni Pitkanen

I don't usual buy autographs from dealers but these I know where good there from a dealer who had the 2 Flyers at a prior show and had these 2 in the back of a binder of 8x10's he was looking to unload for a $1 each so being a Flyer fan I had to take them off his hands. Can't go wrong for a 8x10 for a buck.

Derek Jeter Last Game in Baltimore Sept. 14, 2014


I went with Keith a life long Yankess fan to see Derek Jeter's last game in Baltimore. Wasn't impressed with the pre-game ceremony the Orioles put on would have figured they might of had there HOFers there or at a minimum Cal Ripken Jr. but none where part of the ceremony. In addition to the lack of high profile appearances the items given to Derek were in my opinion lackluster too A Naval Captain's hat, Bushel of Crabs, Oversize Crab Hammer made from Bat material, a #2 Cake & a check for $10K to Charity. As for the game a walk-off 3-2 win for the Orioles with Jeter taking a 0 fer. Took a bunch of pictures see below for a small selection.
I got this close to him signing a ball but NO!
