Who am I?

Mine was a career on the fringe. I never had the chance to drink champagne from Lord Stanley’s Cup. I always found myself playing second fiddle to some hotshot. First there was that guy they referred to as “The Flower”. Then when he was gone ‘The Great One’ took center stage. Soon after came Mario. […]

Who am I?

Looking at my numbers probably doesn’t tell the story. Sure I hit .300 a few times, ripped 30 hrs once, and drove in 100 on three occasions. But in 23 years I never led the league in any of those categories. In fact the only offensive category I ever led was doubles, and I did […]

Who am I?

What’s in a number? I was #23. No, not that #23. Actually, I wore that number before him. While I may not have run up as gaudy of numbers, I did perform under pressure. Some superstitious folks may shudder at the mention of 7 & 11 together, but my goal at 7:11 in overtime gave […]

Who am I?

It might be difficult to imagine that my sports career began on the pitch of West Africa. If you think about it though, my foot work on the hard court represented the agility I developed at a young age. 2000 – 2000 is a representation of me. But don’t stop there. I rank in the […]

Performance of the Week (POTW) 10/27-11/2

Please forgive my lack of objectivity, but the Nazareth Lasers earned my POTW for the week. The Lasers re-wrote history by bringing home the Section V Class CC soccer crown – a first in school’s history. Naz took down the top-seeded Bloomfield Bombers who entered the match undefeated and had outscored their opponents 113-5 in […]

Who am I?

Born and raised on a farm in Kentucky, by the age of two I was already an accomplished athlete. I really became famous at 3 years old, but interestingly enough because of my losses, not wins. In fact, no one else in history has ever lost quite the way that I did that year. I […]

Trick or Treat

The day of ghouls and goblins is upon us, so come on faithful readers of CCWW and share some tricks or treats with deserving members of the sports world. I got a treat for New York Knick head coach, Mike D’Antoni. Coach D’Antoni what’s your flavor? Do you like Three Musketeers? I got a bag […]

Who am I?

After years of taking hits while I was running, now I just run – marathons. Yeah those 11 years running the gridiron in the NFL were nice, but man the hits were brutal. So upon retirement I decided to keep myself in shape by running – 26 miles at a time. Ok – sometimes I […]

Who am I?

Addison and North Sheffield – I know ’em well. I spent fifteen summers there. Seven years in a row I received MVP votes – but never finished higher than fourth. On defense I earned five Gold Gloves. On offense I did a little of everything – led the NL in OBP twice, walks – four […]
