Andre Dawson....c'mon Cubs fans....
 
The sports section needs some fresh meat....

Lebron is old news and Pacquiao vs Mayweather ain't happening this year....


Dawson is a HOF now... Thoughts?

I know there are at least 2 Cubs fans on this forum...and one might be too young to remember Dawson. :laugh: (sorry MHF21)

I grew up during his Cubs era, and I will say that as a die-hard White Sox fan, the only Cubs stuff I ever gave any credence to as a kid was Andre Dawson and Ryan Sandberg. Now, obviously I was too young to fully encompass just how evil and wrong the Cubs are as a White Sox fan, but that truly is the bliss of being an innocent child. They just don't know any better. :wink:

Seriously, Dawson was great, and it's awesome to see him get in the HOF. I also loved how he told all the young players not to cross over to the "dark-side", in reference to steroids. Good stuff.

Also, on the Ryan Sandberg tip, I am also happy to see that a guy as hard working and as good as he is take the path he took to potentially be the new manager of the Cubs next season..... This is pretty much blasphemy on the south-side, but I would be happy for the Cubs if they won a World Series with RYNO as their manager :wink:

Dawson was ahead of my time, but that doesn't mean I don't know about him, I pay attention to my favorite teams' histories...He should have been in years ago, but later is better than never, wish he would have gone in as a Cub instead of an Expo though.....Oh and I want Ryno as the manager next season, he bleeds Cubbie blue and I'd love for him to get the job, plus you know there wouldn't be any questions regarding his dedication or committment to the team

yeah, i never got out to a game, they moved in my teams, but i think the fact that the strike killed one of their best seasons ever had something to do with them leaving ... sad sad day ...

I honestly feel sorry for Canadian fans who constantly have to deal with this stuff.

Obviously it's not always accepted by the masses, but it seems that MLB and NBA have always tried to compensate for what Hockey brings to the American market. It sucks on both sides, because you guys end up with mediocre baseball and basketball teams and our American players end up having to move out of country and end up not liking it. :sad:

Oh, and yes, there was no question when it comes to the numbers the Dawson goes in as an EXPO. : )

Hey, to Canadians though, this is a serious question... When I say the name "Damon Stoudemire" what do you think?

Mighty Mouse ... great draft pick for the raps .. i remember he got booed when he was drafted, cuz they wanted o'bannon, what a bust that would have been ... like every other big player that came here though, his time was up ... vancouver and toronto were given a raw deal in their expansion deal and weren't allowed a number one pick ...the raps actually got the number one pick and had to give it up ... instead of getting iverson, they got camby ... or something like that .. most players when they come to toronto realize how cool of a city it is .. but yeah, they get taxed more and they are in a different country ... but we have had damon, t-mac, vince carter, and now bosh bolt ... what you gonna do ...
