I was reading about someone's experience in going down before.

Guess you don't get too close to the stage and watch on a screen.

Would be nice to make a trek there at some point though.

You should go at some point Chili. I think I will pass this year and aim for Vlad's.

Had he made it, there would be a huge celebration among Expos fans, but that would probably be the last Expo put into the Hall.

Now, you get to party for Rock this year and Vladdy next year.

I think he and Hoffman both figure to get in next year.

The problem with Selig isn't just that he was the commissioner who turned a blind eye to guys like McGwire and Sosa (and others) doing PEDs. He was also one of the owners deeply involved in collusion. That's as much reason why people say his election opens the door as the PED stuff.

I was browsing the SI vault and came across this 1984 article.

Some well written stuff there.
