Reader response to last week's High Fives
Hey Matt "The Little Brain" Romig,
How do you get away with cashing a paycheck each week when you know nothing about baseball? For you to refer to Frank Thomas as "The Big Skirt" is ludicrous and shows how naive you really are. "THE BIG HURT" not only is one of the most feared hitters ever and a future Hall of Famer, he has also proven his toughness and ability to come back from injury – like returning from a missed season due to a torn pectoral to put up 42 HRS and 105 RBI. When he broke his ankle last season, he was leading the league in OBP and on pace for a 30 HR/100 RBI/100 BB season. When he returns this season and puts up typical big numbers we expect from the "BIG HURT," we'll see if you're tough enough to admit you were wrong about him. – Dennis, Bayside, NY
I've got a suggestion for your "High Fives" column. Have a reader-submitted category for the three of you to rank. Here's your first one: Rank the following in order of which group consists of the biggest losers – Trekies, Star Wars geeks, 40-year old virgins, coin and/or stamp collectors and, finally, people who e-mail Brandon Funston to insult Yahoo! fantasy experts for not mentioning their favorite movie, stadium or one-hit wonder. Get a life, people! – John, Ambridge, PA
Hello, I was looking at the "High Fives" and saw that you all left off the best father-son duo of all time, and I'm pretty sure the only father-son duo in which both are in a pro sports hall of fame, and that's Tom Morris and Tom Morris Jr., who are both in the Pro Golf Hall of Fame. They do date back a while, but it is the best in "history," so I thought I would inform you that you left the best out. I also wanted to suggest that you do a top five most intimidating athletes of all time list – could be interesting who frightens you and why. – Joshua, Fort Collins, CO
