Reason #1 why 4.4% of people are complete idiots
I saw the following poll question on ESPN.com yesterday:
"Which is the best player to never win a World Series?"
a) Barry Bonds
b) Ted Williams
c) Ty Cobb
d) Ernie Banks
When I saw it, 43,046 people had voted and here are the results:
Ted Williams 62.7%
Barry Bonds 16.8%
Ty Cobb 16.0%
Ernie Banks 4.4%
That's right, 4.4% of the 43,000+ people that voted think that Ernie Banks was a better player than Ted Williams, Barry Bonds and Ty Cobb.
Sometimes I fear for the future of the planet.
PS - Sorry for the lack of a bigger, better entry today.
I am smack dab in the middle of writing a gigantic, in-depth article about the future of the Minnesota Twins (ON THE FIELD! no stadium/contraction crap).
Want a quick preview of the article?
Okay, here goes...
Tom Prince does NOT figure prominently in my proposed long term plan for the Twins.
That'll keep you interested until I am done!
