    Halliburton is so un-American, they even hate baseball.

    Chris Brown once hit the hardest HR I've seen. It was a straight, screaming liner past the left field seats at Wrigley. People were jumping out of the way.

    I saw Frank Thomas play for Auburn swinging an aluminum bat. Third baseman had to sign a waiver before each of his at-bats.

    I remember reading a story about Brown working for Halliburton. Naturally, the writer took pains to point out that here was the biggest candy-ass in the game working in the most dangerous place on Earth to support his family.

    He was very matter-of-fact about it, saying that the opportunity to make a good living was there and if something happened, something happened.

    Can't remember if the writer asked about where all his baseball money went, thus necessitating him having to drive a truck for Halliburton in the middle of a take-no-prisoners war zone.

    Yep. Jerry isn't named "Brown."

    He barely missed the post-1990 exponential shift in salaries, I reckon.

    Very sobering and revealing story... revealing to a certain extent, about this in today's LA Times.
