End of an Era

College football’s BCS system was fraught with issues and I’m excited that a playoff is around the corner. Nevertheless, what a way to end! That was an amazing, exciting fourth quarter with just about everything that college football offers on display.

For all its problems, the BCS games did have a good number of amazing games. Today’s BCS Title Game was one of them, but none will ever stand out more than Boise State’s victory over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.

Edgar Martinez for Hall of Fame

Really, it seems pretty obvious to me. Edgar Martinez should be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He was in my opinion the best designated hitter of all time — and many statisticians agree . Furthermore, he was total class act on and off the field, a player with good talent and greater discipline, and the kind of person that you want your kids playing little league to grow up to be like, whether they end up playing baseball after little league or not. This is the kind of person and baseball player who should be in the Hall of Fame uncontroversially.

It’s just a shame that the Hall of Fame voters have not yet figured this out.
