just wondering, is marijuana prevalent among major leaguers or st. louis ball players? i remember when darryl kile passed away they found marijuana in his hotel room also.

I remember hearing that rumor, but I never heard any official confirmation of that.

i think it was pretty much confirmed, i remember the doctors/coroners coming out to say that the marijuana had nothing to do with his death though.

Drunk, possibly high and talking on a cell phone while speeding and not wearing a seatbelt. Good show, Josh.

Not that this diminishes the tragedy--perhaps even makes it seem more senseless and preventable--but what a terribly irresponsible act. Thank God nobody else was hurt or killed.

How come these millionaire ballplayers (and Hancock's own manager for that matter!) can't ever seem to afford a cab?

Flat-bed tow trucks, those tall delivery vans, even some school buses... A girl from my high school was killed when she rear-ended a school bus at 15 mph. It basically took her head off.


Blame Reagan. There were many social movements in the 70's aimed at consumer protection, notably the Nader Raiders. Reagan's legacy is deregulation and removal of oversight in the name of Capitalism.

I agree - Reagan sure was great. I'd add to his legacy ending to Cold War and pulling the economy out of stagflation and on to the greatest boom in the history of the world.

but I'm getting off the point - what's this flat-bed-truck-on-the-side-of-the-highway regulation bill he vetoed?

While I'm not a big Reaganite, I have to think that flatbed tow trucks are necessary in some situations and that it would not be cost effective to put bumpers on them all at this point.

I saw that on ESPN, what could he have been thinking? Could he even add anything to that to make it more dangerous? Maybe eating a hamburger at the same time? I just can't understand what makes people do something like that.

And who was he talking to on the phone? If someone called me drunk and driving, there's no way I'd keep talking to them..

Can you possibly imagine what it must have been like to be on the phone with him when that happened?

I mean, when you realized later what happened... :-{
