Ken Griffey Jr. was the best!

12 11 2009

Ken Griffey Jr. baseball

Ken Griffey Jr.is one of my heroes.  He is one of the greatest baseball players of mine or any generation.  If it weren’t for injuries he would’ve been  the all-time home run leader.   While all of these things are great, the biggest contribution that Griffey has made to society is Ken Griffey Jr. baseball for the Super Nintendo.  You remember the game, the one where a young spry Griffey could hit any and every pitch out of the park, not too mention how amazing he was in the field. That’s right we are talking about the best baseball video game ever people.

New technology has changed the way that everyone views video games, if you don’t believe me look at the new Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, those graphics are unbelievable.  While new graphics are awesome, I wish we could go back to the good old days of Ken Griffey Jr. baseball and have some real fun.  On that game the Mariners were unstoppable with Griffey hitting and Randy Johnson pitching you couldn’t lose.  Griffey would hit a home run almost every at bat and Johnson threw over a 100 mph.

There have been other games that were alright, some will argue that Tony Larussa baseball on the Sega Genesis is better and others might think the more recent MVP baseball series is the best.  For me though, there is and always will be just one video baseball game that sits a notch above the rest and that game is Ken Griffey Jr. baseball.

So thank you Ken Griffey Jr. for waiting too long to retire and being in the news, because you have reminded me how great my childhood was and how much I loved your video game.  I am going to the mall tomorrow to see if they happen to have a Super Nintendo system and I will buy it as long as they can provide me with a copy of Ken Griffey Jr. baseball.

Football is King!

9 11 2009


soccer babe

Last week, Hideki Matsui was the World Series MVP and a halfman nominee.  When we did our story on Matsui we found that nobody had seen what his life looked like, but there were plenty of pictures of the other players wives and girlfriends, they’re not what I’d call ugly.  It got us thinking, what sport has the hottest wives and girlfriends, or WAG’s as they’re called?

We started looking at NBA players wives and girlfriends, because let’s be honest, Mrs. Parker is looking good andMarko Jaric has Adriana Lima.  How Jaric got Lima I have no idea, but if the guy wants to start giving classes on how to get women I’ll be first in line, no matter the cost.  While the top NBA WAG’s are amazing their talent pool doesn’t have as much depth as another sport.

After we looked into NBA WAG’s we turned our attention to the NFL WAG’s and we found out that Jeff Garcia gives men everywhere hope with his lady friend, Carmella Decesare.  The NFL does have Gisele and a few other good looking women to back a claim that they are the best looking WAG’s, but they aren’t the winner here at HMHD.

The distinction of best WAG’s at HMHD goes to soccer or football as they call it everywhere else and it’s a landslide my friends.  I thought soccer was a communist sport, but now I can see why the rest of the world seems to like the sport, the girls.  Every other sport had a top ten WAG’s and ten is nice, but how about a top 100 because that is what we found when we looked at soccer,  the top 100 footballer’s WAG’s.  After seeing these WAG’s I have been working on my soccer ball handling skills and every time I score a goal I’ve been ripping my shirt off.  Since I’ve been training hard, I never lose at FIFA 10 on my PS3, I figure Abigail Clancy will be dumping Peter Crouch for me pretty soon.

Matsui's wife

Today’s halfman award nominee is Hideki Matsui.  Matsui’s performance in game 6 of the World Series was remarkable.  Matsui had six rbi’s last night and took home the World Series M.V.P. award.  We had to pick Matsui even if his wife isn’t as hot as the other players.
