Ron's Miami Marlins Scrapbook (MLB)
Marlins are going to knock the Mets out of the playoffs again! LOL
Jeff Conine, Dontrell Willis, Hanley Ramirez, Craig Counsell, Cameron Maybin. But really, I have liked everyone to have ever donned the teal.
Why I am a fan:
November 1992 expansion draft. They drafted a bunch of guys I liked such as Chuck Carr, Jeff Conine, Charlie Hough and others. I also loved the color of their uniform.
Both World Series Victorys!!! Conine MVP of 1994 All-star game. Knocking out the Mets 2007,2008.
Ron's Pittsburgh Steelers Scrapbook (NFL)
If they can sign some younger linebackers, they are a shoo-in for ring #7.

Why I am a fan:
I grew up by Gettysburgh during the 1970's, and Terry Bradshaw is still my all time favorite player. I have bled black
Immaculate reception, all 6 (yes 6!!!) rings, Hall of fame inductions including my boy, Rod Woodson, this year.

Why I am a fan:
