When he got signed to the Braves in 81 my band played his going away party. We got blasted all night together.

Had a very decent career. Cy Young award, pitched in an All Star game, and won a WS ring.

"Very decent"!?! Cy Young-winning relievers come along once a decade at most.
Catcher is my #1 position. I'm turning green with envy right now.

(I've played pick-up hockey with Ron Ellis--beat that!)

Chula I see your college marching band and raise you one World Class DCI Drum Corps:


If you don't call that being an athlete, what is?

Strange things to compare. Musicians generally dont have to deal with the physical constraints that an athlete does. A athletes career is a shorter and more demanding one.

Anyone remembers Deion Sanders? i had his sneakers.

.................

anyway, i chose musicians cause i prefer music over sports but i respect how much athletes train to reach a professional LvL. You don't need to be in shape to be a musician but to be even be a bench warmer in a professional sport you have to be in top shape. the path of an athlete is more disciplined and arduous than a musicians.

Maybe with your garden variety garage band musician, but not so much with a classically trained musician.
