What could have been

I have been out of town for the last couple of weeks - and have not really posted anything new. Sorry, but this is going to happen from time to time.

I used Microsoft's new search engine (BING.COM) today for the first time and ran into this decent article about the career of Dick Allen from the sports blog BLEACHER REPORT. It was written in April 2009.

This is the first time that I have ever read someone come right out and called Allen "an alcoholic" -- but he continued by writing "In today's game, he would most likely be treated with counseling or the substance abuse program, but no such thing existed 40 years ago. Allen was considered a bum."

Take the time and read it. Pretty good perspective.
