I am a 19 year old American that lives in the south and can't get enough of Formula One and baseball. Wait... someone in the south that likes Formula One? Yeah, I know, it's an oxymoron. Truth be told I grew up on Nascar and baseball, but through the years Nascar has gotten a lot more babyish and boring. I just don't see the point in turning left for 400 laps if they won't let them beat and bang anymore. I feel there's a lot more racing, action, and suspense in an F1 race than there is in a Nascar one. It's a shame that it isn't as popular in the United States as it is all over the world.
Baseball was my first love and it will continue to be my favorite one. I've been a lifelong fan of the Atlanta Braves. I've been rooting them on since I was knee-high to a grasshopper pretty much. They've been out of the playoffs since '05 and I've been dedicated to them more than ever, more so than the bandwagon Red Sox and Yankee fans that seem to be everywhere. My brother and I make the five-and-a-half hour trek to Atlanta and Turner Field about three times a year to see our beloved Bravos.
Right now I attend Radford University and am earning a degree in Journalism finishing up a year early. After I graduate I hope to move to Richmond and attain a master's in public relations from VCU..
One of my friends described to me as being "Exuding arrogance, but does not flaunt it." I stay true to that statement since I feel my writing is of high quality, but you will not see me promoting or overstating any achievements.
After the great success of my first article about the uniform numbers 1-10, I have come back with the next installment, with the best players to wear the uniform numbers 11-20. I hope you can take a look and even comment on my choices. Thanks in advance!

You got to meet Sr! Holy sheet! Must have been awesome. I have met a few sports guys, byt Sr would have left me speechless. Re Cobb, used to go to the Hall all the time, and always heard Dad talk to Ty. He was born in 33 and saw em all. Every generation has their favorites, some politically motivated while others are feel good stories. Cobb and Rose were always tops to me too. What they did to Rose is a shameful. As is what they did to Shoeless Joe. I liked Joe Di too, the best Yank anyhow - even his competitor Ted Williams said he was the best all around player.
The guys I liked from this era, well starting from when I was a kid, was Munson (the meanest player in the league as said by others) and yes, I know-Roger Clemens. After Munson died that way, it took Clemens before I was back as a ball fan. Now all this PED stuff, but I dont care-its politically motivated. And I am not PC. Good post brother.
