A lil sore but all is well ...drills are hell.....but on a interesting note today Randy Marsh and Eddie Hickox came to class ...being able to pick their brains over the next few weeks will be brilliant..."Cowboy" Joe West should be a wealth of baseball knowledge....Harry Wendelstedt retold a joke told to him by Al Somers a really Old time baseball Umpire...Al was visiting Salt Lake City in his youth back in the days of Brigham Young....the man not the University...and Brigham Young was giving a speech ...and a tumultuous applause came over the crowd when he was finished...just then a lady strode up and said...Are You Brigham Young ? Brigham Young replied ...I Am....she then asked are you the man with 17 wives and 56 children..? Again Brigham Young replied....I Am .....she then said well sir YOU OUGHT TO BE HUNG !!!! Brigham Young replied I AM ....ok see yas soon more to learn.....

NO FOOTBALL FOR TOPPS

Well it looks like it will just be 2 companies for football cards next year and Topps is not one of them! What do you think?
