Randy Smith: The "Hammer" Turns 82

One week ago the guy I knew as the ":Hammer" enjoyed his 82nd birthday. Henry Louis Aaron turned 82 on February 5th. As a teenager I watched him play with the Atlanta Braves and saw him hit many, many home runs. They weren't the tape measure jobs that Mickey Mantle or Harmon Killebrew sent skyrocketing out of the ball park. Hank's homers were practically all line drives that got ... (click for more)

Innocent Until Proven Guilty, Even Athletes

From reading Randy Smith's column on the lawsuit against UT it is pretty evident that he never took a legal course in his life. I was under the impression that in this country one was innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. It appears this no longer applies to athletes(particularly black athletes) in the U.S. in 2016. I have always said that if I am picked for jury duty ... (click for more)
