    But the trophy is in Boston and not LA. And you should hope your Rams get that far. #BostonChamps

    #5 They are a classy bunch in Boston. Guess it is better than hitting one of the players in the head.

    In his third year of NBA competition, Wilt Chamberlain AVERAGED fifty for the whole season. And what can I say about Dave Roberts? The man has a special gift of knowing precisely when to pull a pitcher.
    From T. Peterson: You’re right about Wilt. Just a dominant player. But our thing about Rose was that he appeared to be done. He hadn’t scored 50 since the 2011 season then all of a sudden he drops 50. What’s next? Vince Carter wins the slam dunk competition?
