    I think Tony Oliva deserves a Biofile.

    Justagirl; Thought that answer was kinda funny too in an unexpected way. Bert Blyleven's personality, like his pitching style, has the tendency to surprise. Gotta appreciate that.

    YF: Everyone deserves a Biofile, no? I'll try to get Tony Oliva.

    Kermit: Gimme some time, if I can get Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown and Ted Williams, I'll get Pele for you.

    If you get Ted Williams, I'll quit slagging on you.

    Got him already, will you stop slagging though? Nah, you can slag, but go easy bro!

    No problem dude.

    Can you get other stars like KaKa and Landon Donavan?

    Well, that was false pretenses; you made it sound as if you had yet to get them. My slag vow is thus fluid

    Biofile is like news organizations that have pre-written obits written on thousands of people. The person dies, call up the biofile.

    I will say Biofile can surprise. Ted Williams apparently loved watching Michael Chang play. Maybe Mickey Mantle was a Jimmy Arias fan.

    Stan Musial was surprised that Richey Reneberg didn't have a better career.

    Got Carlos Valderrama.

    Yeah that was a surprise to hear The Splendid Splinter was a Chang fan. Others were Steve Smith of Carolina Panthers is a John Isner fan. Andrew Golota was a Jim Courier guy. Former boxer Chris Byrd - Monica Seles. T.O. - Roddick. Sergio Garcia - Mardy Fish, etc.
