Aren't they called tail gunners?

The front bubble on a B-29 houses the bombardier.     Speakin' of which, if ya ever get to U-H at Dulles, the Enola Gay (B-29) is there.     Quite a sight.

Kendrick better hit in the playoffs because his defense will sink a fleet of ships.

Great defensive play by Howie - ran to the spot, turned, reached up and the ball nestled in the pocket of the glove.  Textbook.

Baseball is not exactly brain surgery. I once sat next to Michael Morse at a lunch and let's just say it was not exactly a riveting conversation.

Man, a few baserunning errors and you guys are basically calling him borderline retarded...tough crowd.

And they scored that ball off Howie as a triple.

Yep. Exactly the same with my son. When he's interested in a topic, he's on it like nobody's business.

That's me :shock: if I'm into something I can retain even the most irrelevant minutae that I've read but something that bores me? I can't remember a sentence I just read, I wish they would've had ADD diagnoses when I was in school  >:(

Whoa, easy. I was just making a generalization about the intellect of baseball players. Let's just say they're one dimensional.

My brother-in-law was an elementary school teacher.   He said all the males in my family are ADD  ...   most of us undiagnosed.    I don't know if he's serious or not but I have many of the same issues mentioned previously.
