In 2,000 years Babe Ruth will be a mythical figure like Hercules. Scholars will debate whether he actually existed and his actual feats will grow into, like, drinking an entire distillery and then striking out Paul Bunyan. Ernie Shore will be lost from that near-perfect game story. It'll turn into "Babe Ruth walked a guy, started arguing, got ejected, punched the umpire, went back to the mound and retired the next 26 batters."

Is Babe Ruth the athlete who would generate the most #hotsportstakes if he'd played in the Twitter Age? (Well, no, Jackie Robinson would, but that's not fun to think about.)

This is hilarious. Loved the Babe Ruth story told by Sam, and especially the way he told it.

"John Olerud has the face of a land disputer" That is still making me giggle.
