So I have started doing a quick video…around a minute on Mondays for my business clients.
So… I’ve made the decision to start blogging. Why you may ask? Mostly as an outlet to share my thoughts with the world. Add my perspective on current events, and hopefully provide some humor and fun along the way.
While yesterday’s Super Bowl was not the shoot out that the “experts” predicted, it was still an interesting game to watch. Even though I am more of a baseball guy, the game within the game was great. The fact that Todd Bowles defensive scheme stopped the Chiefs cold was great to watch. I fully expected Andy Reid, another great coach, to make adjustments at the half to find a “way to win”. The MVP could have gone to the defense. Tom Brady was Tom Brady. He finds ways to win, he doesn’t make many mistakes. It was a typical Tom Brady workmanlike performance. Now I know all the Chief’s fans are still complaining about some of the questionable defensive penalty calls…but those aside, the Bucs still win. Those penalties did not stop the Chief’s offense.
Now that Tom Brady has 7 Super Bowl Rings…1 more than the entire Patriots and Steeler franchises, the question in my mind is has this become one of the “Unbreakable” sports records? When I think of the list of unbreakable records, a few stand out above the others.
• Cal Ripken 2,632 consecutive games played. With the changes in the game and the importance of rest days…this one is safe.
• Ricky Henderson 1,406 stolen bases. Yes guys are fast, but today’s pitchers get the ball to the plate faster, catchers are stronger, and with the big hitters of today, no one wants to run themselves out of an inning. Also safe.
• Boston Celtics 8 consecutive championships. Think about this one, 8 in a row. With the parity in today’s modern sports, and the movement of players…won’t happen again.
• Wayne Gretzky career points total of 2,857. The Great One. I’m done.
• Hack Wilson 191 RBI in one season. Even if you play every game in a season, you need to AVERAGE over 1.18 RBI per game.
• Cy Young 749 complete games. Hello…closers.
• Nolan Ryan 7 no hitters. Maybe…but again, with today’s hitters and video of pitchers, hard to replicate.
Enough of my musings for the day…what do you think? What records are unbreakable…I know I skipped many…but these are my top ones.
