From a champ to a chump

For weeks and weeks, we've been told by many in the sports media that LeBron James is the greatest basketball player EVER! He singlehandedly destroyed the Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics in the playoffs. No need for four other players on his team, he could, and did, do it all by himself.

Bunting to get on base

Now that we've mentioned bunting, there's sure a lot of ball players that can't do it properly. My old coach, Whitey Welch-a subject for another time- always taught us, "You let the ball hit the bat, you don't hit the ball with the bat when you bunt."
