  1. MLB: The Braves just finished their 54th season in Atlanta (1966-2019), but still need to play 28 years there to match their time in Boston (1871-1952) The Twins will play their 60th season in Minnesota in 2020 (1961-2020), matching their time in Washington (1901-1960) The Athletics will (probably) play 54th season in Oakland in 2021 (1968-2021), matching their time in Philadelphia (1901-1954)
  2. San Antonio: George Gervin, David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard Ames, Iowa: Fred Hoiberg, Troy Davis, Dan Gable, and Gary Thompson or Johnny Orr
  3. My favorite old baseball player names: Ossie Schreckenghost Van Lingle Mungo Piano Legs Hickman
  4. The White Sox had both catcher Giovany Soto and pitcher Giovanni Soto on their 40-man roster this year, but the pitcher was never called up and was released. The Braves had pitcher David D. Carpenter in 2014, and pitcher David L. Carpenter in 2015.
  5. As a Braves fan, I agreee with Hank Aaron for the Braves, but I tend to think of a different player for each city: Atlanta: Chipper Jones just barely ahead of Dale Murphy (my favorite), the Smoltz/Glavine/Maddux triumvirate (core of pennant-winning teams) and Phil Niekro Milwaukee: Hank Aaron well ahead of Eddie Mathews (only man to play in all 3 cities) and Warren Spahn (played almost half his career and his first World Series in in Boston) Boston: Kid Nichols over Fred Tenney, Rabbit Maranville (won 1914 Series) and (because no one living would remember the first three) Warren Spahn
  6. Ten years ago maybe, but Timmy now has 5 titles, and his unselfish play is the model for how the current Spurs were built, and what so many other teams are now trying to imitate.
  7. Here are my changes and there are many Cowboys Roger Staubach (Tom Landry if we cont coaches) Agree with Staubach. I grew up watching Smith, Aikman & Irvin, but Staubach was still the first name that came to mind.
  8. 1988-1989: All of my favorite teams were horrible Atlanta Braves 1988: 54-106 - Last place 1989: 63-97 - Last place Dallas Cowboys 1988: 3-13 - Last place 1989: 1-15 - Last place San Antonio Spurs 1988-89: 21-61 - 5th place (only ahead of expansion Miami Heat) But a combined 8 championships since then (maybe 9 soon) makes up for it.

  10. You forgot Oklahoma City. Put them in the Central, move Cleveland to the East and add a third expansion team to the West (Anaheim or Las Vegas?), and that gives you 11 teams per conference.
  11. Seattle is the obvious favorite, but Louisville is basketball crazy, and has a new arena that needs some financial help. Realignment would be easy, with four 4-team divisions per conference.
  12. Marshalltown's "Roundhouse" HS Gym in central Iowa seats 4,500 (I graduated there in 1990)
  13. This one is missing the Dayton Triangles/Baltimore Colts connection
