Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

You want to talk about impressive? I saw Jim Abbott pitch in HS. He pitched for Flint Central HS.

Im wondering when the Jim Abbott made-for-tv movie will be made.

I saw Uggie Urbina sitting on the bench at a Sarasota Red Sox game. He didn't pitch in that game but he came out to wave.

Jose Contreras, Morales and the entire 1996 and 2000 Cuban Olympic teams. Morales was awesome, too bad he never defected.
