It's not racist. I suppose that with an overactive liberal imagination you could pretend that it was an ethnic or religious slur. But to do so you would have to be more woke than Fauxcohontas.
Probably should have been clearer, but I was trying to ask for athletes that had played at the top: NBA, NFL, MLB, etc.
No? Equally stubborn and you frequently make decisions as bad as his vis a vis gator QBs.
Chuck Conners (the Rifleman) played NBA & MLB.
Good to know. A new one for me.
Without looking I seem to remember 1st base White Sox, did not know NBA. Now Im gon go look.
@rogdochar From that beacon of truth Wiki: Since childhood Connors had disliked his first name Kevin, and he had sought another one. He tried using "Lefty" and "Stretch" before finally settling on "Chuck". The name derived from his time as a player on Seton Hall's baseball team. He would repeatedly yell to the pitcher from his position on first base, "Chuck it to me, baby, chuck it to me!" The rest of his teammates and spectators at the university's games soon caught on, and the nickname stuck. Connors, though, left Seton Hall after two years to accept a contract to play professional baseball. He played on two minor league teams (see below) in 1940 and 1942, then joined the United States Army following America's entrance into World War II. During most of the war, he served as a tank-warfare instructor at Fort Campbell, located on the Kentucky-Tennessee border, and later at West Point in New York. Chuck Connors Lefty kinda has that "look", if he had a red pompador one might mistake him for another Irishman gay blade Conan O'Brien. Dude knew how to rock a uni too. Chuck Connors as a Brooklyn Dodger. First baseman Born: April 10, 1921 Brooklyn, New York Died: November 10, 1992 (aged 71) Los Angeles, California Batted: Left Threw: Left MLB debut May 1, 1949, for the Brooklyn Dodgers Last MLB appearance September 30, 1951, for the Chicago Cubs MLB statistics Batting average .238 Home runs 2 Runs batted in 18 TeamsBrooklyn Dodgers (1949)Chicago Cubs (1951)In 1940, following his departure from college, Connors played four baseball games with the Brooklyn Dodgers' minor league team, the Newport Dodgers (Northeast Arkansas League). Released, he sat out the 1941 season, then signed with the New York Yankees' farm team, the Norfolk Tars (Piedmont League), where he played 72 games before enlisting in the Army at Fort Knox, Kentucky at the end of the season, on October 10, 1942. During his Army service, Connors moonlighted as a professional basketball player, joining the Boston Celtics and helping to lead them to the 1946 National Basketball League championship. Following his military discharge in 1946, he joined the newly formed Boston Celtics of the Basketball Association of America, becoming the first professional basketball player to be credited with breaking a backboard. Connors took a shot that caught the front of the rim of an improperly installed glass backboard during the Celtics' warmup at Boston Arena on November 5, 1946. Connors left the team for spring training with Major League Baseball's Brooklyn Dodgers. He played for numerous minor league teams before joining the Dodgers in 1949, for whom he played in only one game. He joined the Chicago Cubs in 1951, playing in 66 games as a first baseman and occasional pinch hitter. In 1952, he was sent to the minor leagues again to play for the Cubs' top farm team, the Los Angeles Angels. He was drafted into American Football by the NFL's Chicago Bears, but never suited up for the team. I don't know Rog, might be a deal killer
Tony Gwynn probably could have had a decent NBA career as a point guard . Obviously he made the right choice playing baseball. He actually went to SDSU on a basketball scholarship and last I heard was their all time assist leader . Tony was the best hitter I’ve ever seen with my own two eyes . David Justice has a similar story . Went to college to shoot hoops and got sick of the conditioning , so he walked over to the baseball field one day.
Too bad he didn't play in the NFL. Wouldn't baseball, basketball, and football have been an amazing trifecta!
Im a woke lesbian for sure.
Gene Conley in the 50's. NBA and MLB.. I remember it well.
They had a Mets beat writer on the local sports radio 620 on Friday while I was at lunch, said he has heard if the Mets keep playing like they currently are the rest of the season, Tebow might be called up for the last month.
Tebow coming up 3rd in bottom of the 9th if not subbed out during that inning. Currently down 4-3. You can follow here: http://m.milb.com/2018_07_11_elwaax_eleaax_1/#/js/2018_07_11_elwaax_eleaax_1/gamelog/
