The greatest story in sports gets better
Josh Hamilton, the greatest story in sports today, and maybe the greatest story in the history of sports (I'm looking for a better one), just added to his growing legend by crushing 28 home runs in the Home Run Derby.
I'm usually not much of a fan of the Home Run Derby, but tuned in to see our local boy hit a few. I found myself laughing out loud as his total continued to climb.
I hope, I really hope, this guy can keep his head screwed on straight. It's so rare that we have good stories come out of pro sports, and this is one which can be the kind of story you tell your grand kids.
What fun. How great for Hamilton. How lucky for us to be able to see it unfold in front of us.
