Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I'll take folks' words for it, that he was a kind man. However, in my book, he will forever be remembered as a slick lawyer-to-the-rich-and-guilty who helped a double murderer walk free. :-t


I understand everyone's (even OJ's) consitiutional right to council. However I am also free to believe as I want. And I'll shed NO tears for the man.

I'll never chastise a man for doing his job well.

I didn't realize that he was nearing death, Cochrane must have had some skills to be able to get OJ acquitted. He also spurred on various comedic iterations of himself, such as a South Park episode where he uses Chewbacca to prove his client innocent. :-)
