RIP Colin Bell 

No disrespect but all morning I have been trying not to sing an old playground song: 

Lee bummed Bell, Bell bummed Lee. Lee and Bell bummed Sumerbee...👀

I loved his documentary series 7Up and the rest that followed 

The British director Michael Apted has died at the age of 79.

The film-maker and documentarian was known for films such as Gorillas in the Mist and Coal Miner’s Daughter, as well as his long-running series of Up documentaries.

How sad , really enjoy ( and find sad) his Up documentary and he started that at age 23, and I believe it’s one of the most powerful social documentaries you can watch. RIP

RIP to a true legend and gentleman. Truly consistent performer, 755 homers while never having more than 47 in a season, and accomplished all of this way before the steroid era. Poor guy even got death threats when he was about to break Babe Ruth’s record

Oh Henry.... what a truly remarkable athelete he was. And what an incredible story regarding his life and the challenges he confronted.

Certainly in the top 10 of greatest baseball players ever. Very well could be considered the greatest.

I agree, people forget many other stats he is still at or near the top. I know from playing the game from 5-17  it takes lots of skill to hit a baseball, steroids or not. 

The guys with borderline HOF credentials who used drugs, I agree they should be kept out and receive very few votes. But love them or hate them, ARod and Barry belong there 100% IMO, they were that good. And Pete Rose as well, forget about the stuff off the field
