When Frank Williams loses his wallet he replaces his ID with a baseball card.: "He began life as an orphan abandoned in Seattle, grew up in foster homes and made it all the way to the top of professional baseball. And then it all disappeared in a bad marriage, alcoholism and a horrific car crash."

Vaguely recalls Jim Thorpe. (do ya like my sentence structure so far?) Speaking of Thorpe,I don't care what various polls over the years indicate,(addressing the greatest athlete question.....the last one I recall said Michael Jordan was the greatest) Jim Thorpe was the greatest athlete in recorded history. Michael could barely hit a baseball, so....on my list,either Neon Deon Sanders or Bo Jackson is#2. Yes, MJ is in the top 10. Ali is also in the 10,along with Babe Ruth,Gordie Howe,Pele and so it goes.......
