...will be tough for me to stomach. It's hard to forget about the 17 years of disdain I've built up for him.

Batting average at .233 and he's overcome a problem? They have what's called anti amyloid treatments that might help, not so much Crede, but Shid.

favre's the only chance that this team could win it all before it splits up within a few years. look at the 98 team. if you think we can wait for tj and sage to develope with the rest of the team ,it wont happen. we still need a new coach. childress will do something worse than the "take a knee" that denny did

Like every other season this one will start with the fans on the bandwagon and end with purple tears. Favre has played horribly toward the end of the season for the last several years. This year will be no exception. Wear your new #4 jersey early and often, because it won't be in use for long.

The proper term is "Athletic Trainer", not simply "trainer", as in corporate/personal/dog/horse/boxing/intercultural or any other kind of trainer. Hartman deserves an earful for continuing to ignore this certification. Might seem like a minor detail to those outside of the sports medicine sphere, but it's as much of a difference between your marriage and family therapist and your physical therapist. These designations are legally recognized and they actually determine how you are allowed to medically treat people under state laws. Sugarman is a seasoned and highly-respected professional who deserves to be recognized as an "athletic trainer", if not a "certified athletic trainer".
