This evil bastard didn't rob banks, commit horrific murders that criscrossed across the nation, nor was he the leader of a notorious foreign drug cartel exploiting america's drug problem for his own gain leading to incredible wealth. This evil bastard robbed us all of something. He robbed us of the rationale that there is good in everyone. Clearly this freak-show is void of good, filled with dirty little thoughts, weird, perverted, strange, masturbating with a pie in the kitchen type of thoughts. Just plain strange I say. What do you say? article link

The NEXT NEXT NEXT big-time recruit

Bleacher Link to Article from KEEPING IT HEEL'

  1. North Carolina
  2. Duke
  3. Syracuse
  4. Florida State
  5. Kentucky
Looking over that list of colleges two things jump out at me.  First, those are some of if not THE top basketball programs in college athletics, all except 1 with a longtime coach who is surely a Hall of Famer. Second, Florida State?

Andrew Wiggins is a big time recruit. He's the kind of recruit that could change the course of a little known program forever. But, that's NOT going to happen. This superstar ultra-athletic wing is going to take his place at one of the big-time elite powerhouses in the ACC or SEC, spend a year showcasing his talents in some made for TV match-up like Kentucky vs. North Carolina in the Carrier Classic this past year and then off to the glitz and glamour of THE LEAGUE. The chance that we get to see him on a college campus for his sophomore season probably only happens if god forbid he gets a serious injury and misses significant time(although this didn't deter Kyree Irving) or he develops a strong bond with his team and they don't win the championship but would be the consensus favorites should he choose to stay.


If Wiggins decides to remain in the 2014 class instead of reclassifying to 2013 as some are suggesting he should/will do it could be just the right time for an electric, dynamic, high flying wing to run the break with 2013 commits Nate Britt and Isiah Hicks.

One in a lifetime find for family in DEFIANCE, OHIO

First off. No, this family didn't find a homeless teenager wandering down the street and take him in before he tried out for the football team and they discovered that he is the best middle linebacker they have ever seen, football coaches from Lane Kiffin, Steve Spurrier and Lou Holtz are not showing up during sunday brunch to convince him to go take a trip over to USC and there certainly isn't yet that quick fix diamond in the rough that only Urban Meyer saw and now will be starting at that football factory in Columbus, Ohio.... Story Link

If this turns out to be entirely genuine as many in the industry believe it really is one of those stories that you can only dream about happening to you. It's just that rare. Combine all of the factors in play here, the age of the house these collectibles were stored in maintaining it's structure when across the country everyday we hear about snow, hail, rain, floods, fires, etc causing homes to become just a distant memory along with everything inside. 

Then you have multiple generations taking up residence, making their life and having no idea that all along they are sleeping below what sports collectors consider many mint condition incredible masterpieces.  This continues for decades, through family gatherings, comings and goings and finally.....the baseball card collectibles holy grail is discovered....

I'm not going to even get into specifics of the find really except to say that cards around 100 years old aren't found very often. Cards that old that are found are almost always in pretty rough shape and occasionally someone lucks out and a few nice gems in decent condition are found.  Again though, typically, it's a total of 20 thrown in a shoe-box or maybe 30 in the back of a photo album etc etc. 

This story once again defies all logic in that there was a total of over 700 that were made around 1910. To give you a little perspective the authentication expert that has spent his life in this field noted he had seen a total of maybe 700 of this rare series card and this collection was in the best condition he HAD EVER SEEN. Now, THIS IS ONE HELL OF A COLLECTOR'S STORY!!!!
