Glad to see that the baseball writers have shown some balls and said no to the admission of performance enhancement drug users into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown 다운로드.
The clowns involved have already robbed enough money from the team owners that paid them as well as the fans who perhaps thought the ‘stars’ performances were on the up and up 다운로드.
Now I can only wish the writers in other sports, especially boxing, to show the same courage.***
Nothing new on the Pacquiao – Mayweather front 성경듣기 다운로드. If they meet up in the ring it will because Mayweather has to, sooner or later, stop running away from the only real money-match around.
The “Ring”, or one of their writers think it’s okay for Evander to keep on fighting 다운로드. Allow me to agree, as long as the fans fully realize that they are getting ripped off if they are paying to see a ‘fight’.
I hope no one takes this the wrong way, after all, the “Ring” is considered the ‘Bible of Boxing’ 서브노티카 빌로우 제로 다운로드. Who am I to take issue with the ‘Bible.’ No, I’m not a heretic, but I have to challenge the writer of this articles point of view.
The Real Deal is not even a shell of what he once was, and every time Holyfield steps into the ring, he’s risking injury or worse, and if that were to happen it will be another black mark on our sport.***
In West Virginia, Evander Holyfield takes on Sherman ‘Tank’ Williams on January 22? You have to be kidding. Does anybody care? If so why? My prediction is it will be a horrible event to watch for free, let alone waste almost thirty dollars on. Neither fighter should be considered a legitimate contender for the heavyweight crown.
