    What is Wilson's connection with Chicago? He is a born and raised So Cal kid and has never played pro ball, even in the minors, in that part of the country that I can tell.

    I'd be worth at least $10-$15 million a year.

    GO Cardinals!

    As I get older I really am starting to enjoy listening to The Cardinals on the the radio. I like it better than on TV. Baseball is such a easy paced game, that you can enjoy listening to it while doing other things. The older I get, the smarter my Dad becomes!

    The game ruled in the radio era. It is a game that a good announcer can bring to life on the radio. Football and basketball are in their prime on TV and they really pale compared to baseball when they are in the radio format.

    BTY, game 5 in the playoffs last year, Zito and our fat man made it tough on your team

    Baseball and golf... where fat men can excel. Bowling too, I imagine.

    I find it somewhat (I'm searching for the nice way to put this) ironic to carp about pro athlete salaries on a "BMW" MC forum? What happened to this being an expensive hobby that makes others richer? Maybe we should all sell our MC's & give it too my fave charities:Salvation Army & Wounded Warriors? Or we could start a "bitch about BMW corporate salaries vs. MC cost & social welfare concerns thrown in? This really is headed nowhere? As a retired teacher I certainly would have preferred(and more money too!) my 1st career choice: baseball (had I the skill level required) but my generation of players often had a side job as the money wasn't so large then. Many/most in the BB hall of fame didn't have the big bucks and worked at other jobs. The Micky Mantles & Babe Ruths were exceptions of that day. One of my fave pitchers of the past was a contractor in the off season. Guys like Hank Aaron were lucky in starting when it was another e.g. of racial discrimination/low money ball but played long enough to cash in on the big money era.
    While agree that many in society make too much money it doesn't taint my enjoyment of several sports. You could be like my BIL who attends SEC FB games(replete with multi-mil coaches & TV contracts to the league & schools-read Jason Whitlock for some lucidity on college sports dollars) with us , yet refuses to go to NFL game because of the high salaries. Make sense out of that philosophy...
    FWIW, In the final anaylysis of the "big money" things in our society-you name one, any one, I double dare you and I can state that "the little man" makes a living at the bottom of that food chain too. Is it always fair, hell no!
    Go Cats! Go Royals! Go Chiefs! Go Jayhawks! Go Packers!
