    Babe Ruth Turns Pro 100 Years Ago Today

    I only mention this because the legendary Yankee was a huge boxing fan. Huge. You can find photos of him out on the town with fighters, wearing boxing gloves, etc. Gotta love the Babe.

    I heard it from an eye witness, not an ear witness, that the baseballers, basketballers and boxers were tight back then and rolled and strolled in the same circles. Holla!

    Babe was the GOAT. His pitching gets overlooked with all the homeruns, hotdogs, and whores.

    True tRoast, that game 100 years ago yesterday he was the winning pitcher of record. I believe he still holds some World Series records as a pitcher, or at least he did not all that many years ago.

    The curse of the Bambino, pianos, Broadway Plays, calling home run shots, making more than the President of the US (Had a better year), some years hitting more home runs than entire teams in the majors, (really need to check that because while I've been quoting it for years, it might be an old wive's tale) an absolute beast.
