    Unhappy RIP Frank Robinson

    "Frank Robinson, the first black manager in Major League Baseball and Hall of Fame outfielder, has died at 83. MLB tweeted the news and posted a commemorative picture of the two-time MVP.

    Robinson had been in hospice care at his home in Bel Air."

    come on, come on let's work together, now now people,
    'cause together we will stand ev'ry boy ev'ry girl ev'ry man ...

    Local news here said his jersey is retired for 3 teams...Reds, Orioles, and Indians. All 3 clubs have statues of him.

    Won the National League MVP for Cinci and the American League MVP for Balt. One of the top 10 players ever. Remember him well.

    RIP. Goodbye youth.

    School: University of Wyoming / Height: Mucho Grande / Stats are for losers
    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".

    Seriously. That's an era in being a kid for me. Never saw anyone else wearing an Orioles hat around here back then and I was never without mine. It was all about the Robinsons.

    RIP indeed.
    And if Obama did that ? Seriously ?

    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !
