Somehow, before I even clicked on this thread, I knew this image would be in here.
there's no reason on this earth for any man to have that many pockets on their suit.
You're just watching the wrong sports....
We can't forget these wonderful moments from Balotelli....
Instead of assisting....Mario goes it alone....in a way only he knows...
Or how can we forget....
-He was caught trespassing at a women's prison in Italy (October 2010)
-He racked up $10,000 in parking tickets, and had his Maserati impounded 27 times (2010)
-He got Man City eliminated from the Europa League by getting a red card for a karate kick (March 2011) -A little boy on the street told Mario he was being picked on, so Balotelli went to his school and confronted the bully (May 2011)
-He randomly showed up to a press conference in Italy where a new coach was being introducing at an unrelated team, then left (March 2012)
LuckyLuchiano seems like one of those guys who loves to hear themselves talk. Saying Griff had no personality? Your words hold no weight homie
Bruh avg kid from urban areas aint into baseball at all thats for NYC cats and suburban cats, all we care about is hooping and football. Tell me what is Griff known for that is not baseball related? He was not a Larger than Life persona, he is on the same plane as Jordan.
kinda agree w/this, jordan & griffey more grew into their personalities through how they were marketed, this isn't to say they did not have charisma or style, that obviously ins't the case...deion always had that 'want to be seen' persona

guys like walt & broadway joe definitely were the blueprint
No idea is original, there's nothing new under the sun...It is never what you do, but how it is done
