As you all have probably heard, there is big time controversy surrounding the possible use of pine tire on Detroits star pitcher, Kenny Rogers.
At first I dismissed it...but after the game, the more research I did, the more it convinced me that he indeed use pine tar on his hand for a better grip. Before you rant and rave, hear me out.
Yes, he washed it off after it was questioned- and yes he pitched great all night even after he washed whatever it was off....do you know why he pitched great? Because even wiping the pine tar off would still leave an almost invisible residue that is still highly beneficial to his breaking pitches. It adds a whole new dimension of aerodynamics to the slow and breaking pitches.
Just because we didn't see it after the second inning, doesn't mean it was not there. Also, notice how much he touched his hat, and how he was always blowing into his hands (a little too much, even though it was cold) yeah, I am 100% convinced AND I also think he will eventually break down and admit it. At the very least, the MLB commission needs to investigate this a lot closer than what they have done so far.
Look at the comparison pictures to the right - the first one is from Sundays game, and the next is from ALCS game 3. VERY similar markings, and both nights he pitched amazingly....not too hard to draw conclusions if you ask me.

This video has been all over the internet. Basically an investigative reporter is doing a follow up on a real estate scam, and as you will see, a crazy lady goes psycho on the reporter, and then her husband shows up to beat the crap out of him. Luckily a bystander was able to help the reporter!!
Hey all! God I haven't posted for nearly 2 weeks! Shame on me.
I know the saying, "excuses are like assholes....blah blah blah..." BUT, I have been pretty busy with other "stuff". As a matter of fact, I will clue you in on my latest and greatest!
A close friend of mine, and myself, both enjoy fishing. Very much. So after doing some thinking, and a TON of research and all that good stuff, we have decided to launch our own line of hand poured scented worms, as well as other various other types of lures!
I AM SO PUMPED! I haven't been this excited about something in a very long time. Obviously our goal is to get our stuff out on the local markets, however, worst case scenario if we don't succeed on the retail side of things, we still don't lose, because we'll use them ourselves!!
Once we get past the prototype and testing phases - one of my personal goals is to get a real "pro" bass fisherman to use our worms in a tournament. Hell, I don't care if they only use it for 5 casts, if luck is on our side, and they land a lunker of a bass on one - that seals the deal for us!! Word of mouth is EVERYTHING in the tackle industry. One good tournament, and we're golden. Again, thats a personal dream - I promised myself not to get my hopes up too high.
So anyway, I will continue to post, and you'll probably see alot of shameless plugs about our new lures. If any of you readers fish - let me know, and I will be more than happy to send you a few samples of our work when we are in the production stage.
