Carl Lewis Before the 1988 Olympics:  “There are gold medallists at this meet who are on drugs, that [100 metres] race will be looked at for many years, for more reasons than one.”
 Ben Johnson’s response was:

Rony Seikaly

Many of us guys envy athletes and other guys out there.  In fact, some of us wouldn’t mind actually being these guys for extended periods of time.

To Be that Guy on that Night: Reggie Jackson Blasts Three

Reggie Jackson

You guys all know it. Reggie Jackson belted three bombs on October 18, 1977 in Game Six of the World Series. We don’t need to dive into Jackson’s career. We all know that players like Jackson rarely exist today.

Sheer toughness, a passion for the game and a temper that was phenomenal. But what I’d like to know is what happened that night. Did he get laid? Imagine being Jackson that night in the Big Apple. The world must have been his oyster.

Every single New Yorker must have wanted to blow him, including the guys. Now why can’t news people ask these kinds of questions and make these comments?

The best I’ll see is a football analyst saying “Well Bill…if they’re gonna get into this game they’re gonna need some points.” I want to know if Jackson got head the night he belted three homers.
