Saturday is in the cards (6/28)

In response to last week’s SINTC post Brother Reynell mentioned the infamous Billy Ripken card. Got me thinking about cards of the past. While these cards didn’t create a stir as great as the four letter word scrawled on the knob of Ripken’s bat (wonder how Holden Caufield reacted to Ripken’s card), they could not […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 6/16-6/22

Another great week with plenty of performances to choose from. I am going with Ray Allen who dropped 26 including 7 trifectas in game 6 of the NBA finals as the Celtics brought home their 17th title. And he slowed down that guy from LA – what was his name? Who gets your POTW?

Saturday is all in the cards

Thought I’d try something a little different. Since I know many Clipboard followers have enjoyed opening those wax packets of cardboard with the pictures of our heroes, thought I’d display a few. This marvel known as the internet allows us to capture these same images that we had to go to the corner store and […]

The Legend of Steve Skrinar

Before he began his current job as an employee with the Florida Marlins of Major League Baseball, Steve Skrinar played outfield for the Rochester Royals of the New York Collegiate Baseball League. Skrinar earned a reputation as a gritty, hard-working outfielder who was willing to do whatever it took to help his team win. Sometimes […]

“Go Yankees”

I’m guilty of using a sensational headline that would catch everyone’s attention. I admit it. Surely when you read that line cheering on the Bronx Bombers, you had to think I had gone mad. What’s worse? This article doesn’t have anything to do with baseball. Least I don’t think it does anyway. Originally I planned […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 6/9-6/15

Plenty to choose from this week. I’m going with the Dutch national soccer that crushed France in Euro ’08 pool play by a count of 4-1. Someone get me a video of that match. The Netherlands abused the French. Arjen Robben’s goal was a classic. Who gets your POTW?
