Almost fell out of my seat upon reading "Gnarlie Hough".

The "Gnarlie Hough" part about killed me. I decided to google "Charlie Hough" and I came up with this All-Star lineup to teach your kids how to play ball. I think I've seen most of those mugshots on Dateline stalking kids...

that website is great. look at all the cool information i found...

charlie hough: State of Hawaii, Athlete of the Century. (huh?)

tim leary: 1988 Dodger Pitcher of the Year. (according to who?)

mike scott: Giving and receiving golf lessons at El Niguel CC, Laguna Niguel, California. (oh you're just making shit up now!)

Charlie Hough: Athlete of the Century only because he pitched for most of the 21st century. Who else could win it? June Jones?

I like Pete O'Brien's picture. Very creepy old guyish, and it reminds me of a tele-evangelist.

Here's the thing that popped out to me, other than Mike Scott giving golf lessons; Matt Sinatro's career numbers: 1981-1992, 140 CAREER games. My math isn't the greatest, probably cause I had York's mom as my teacher, but MLB seasons are 162 games long, so in 12 seasons, Sinatro averaged...about 11 games, or he basically got called up for a road trip every season. And he now he gives lessons to kids?
