Matthew Stafford and Clayton Kershaw

(I'unno if this is the right place to put this, but I figured it was as good as any other thread)

If I remember the story right, Stafford caught for him in high school. Which you can only assume with the arm Stafford has.

And @riatt cleavland can never be wrong for Lebron, the call it the Lebron era

I was trying to get across that both Cleveland and Miami will be "right" for LeBron, similar to how New Jersey/Nashville will be "right" for Parise/Suter, as well as Minnesota.

I disagree with that. Parise and Suter have something around 13 years in a Minnesota Wild uniform. If they both stick it out and have an impact, their overall stays at New Jersey and Nashville will be an afterthought since they won nothing there. And if LeBron plays more years with Miami with more hardware...he played for Cleveland? Really?

Parise was the Devil's captain and took them to a Stanley Cup. LeBron's years in Cleveland and how he left will be a part of his story forever. He can't escape that. I can give you Suter, maybe.

IMHO a player can have more than one "right" uniform. For me Magic, Lakers and to some extent Heat (because of the ring) are fine for Shaq. Cleveland, Phoenix and Boston are the wrong ones.

When it comes to David Beckham people tend to forget that as a United player he was considered as one of the best right midfielders in the world. Afterwards there was more hype than quality football in his career.

about the only thing i'm familiar with concerning beckham is the all the hype and media spots with in gossip magazines with his spice girl wife. The first time i heard of him was back on the cyber-nhl boards when he was going to i think Madrid? and everyone was flipping out about it. i want to say that was the start of his hype.

I'd say that Cal Ripken Jr. looked most appropriate in a Rays uniform. I've seen a few pictures of him in an Orioles uniform and it's just weird.

Um...... what?
