2012 NFL Draft is Live on ESPN right now

They say that the older you get, you are less receptive to change? I've been a football fan (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) for my entire life and I'm so used to watching the NFL Draft on Sunday, that I have missed the last few years since they moved it to Thursday night.

In case you like me and have already missed most of the first round, here are the 2012 NFL First Round picks:

#1 - QB Andrew Luck - Indianapolis Colts
#2 - QB Robert Griffin III - Washington Redskins
#3 - RB Trent Richardson - Cleveland Browns
#4 - OT Matt Kalil - Minnesota Vikings
#5 - WR Justin Blackmon - Jacksonville Jaguars
#6 - CB Morris Claiborne - Dallas Cowboys


#7 - SS Mark Barron - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#8 - QB Ryan Tannehill - Miami Dolphins
#9 - LB Luke Kuechly - Carolina Panthers
#10 - CB Stephen Gilmore - Buffalo Bills
#11 - DT Dontari Poe - Kansas City Chiefs
#12 - DT Fletcher Cox - Philadelphia Eagles
#13 - WR Michael Floyd - Arizona Cardinals
#14 - DT Michael Brockers - St. Louis Rams
#15 - LB Bruce Irvin - Seattle Seahawks
#16 - DE Quinton Coples - New York Jets
#17 - CB Dre Kirkpatrick - Cincinnati Bengals
#18 - DE Melvin Ingram - San Diego Chargers
#19 - LB Shea McClellin - Chicago Bears
#20 - WR Kendall Wright - Tennessee Titans
#21 - DE Chandler Jones - New England Patriots
#22 - QB Brandon Weeden - Cleveland Browns
#23 - OT Riley Reiff - Detroit Lions
#24 - OG David DeCastro - Pittsburgh Steelers
#25 - LB Donta Hightower - New England Patriots
#26 - DE Whitney Mercilus - Houston Texans
#27 - OG Kevin Zeitler - Cincinnati Bengals
#28 - DE Nick Perry - Green Bay Packers
#29 - S Harrison Smith - Minnesota Vikings
#30 - WR A.J. Jenkins San Francisco 49ers
#31 - RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers
#32 - RB David Wilson New York Giants

I like the fact that the NFL has decided to invite plenty of players to attend the draft in person, but I really don't like the new schedule. I'm pretty sure there are plenty fans who would rather have it back on Sunday as well.

Darren Sproles Autograph Signing April 2014 Philadelphia Eagles New Orleans Saints

On Sunday April 27, 2014, GT Sports Marketing (GTSM) will host a public autograph signing for Philadelphia Eagles/ San Diego Chargers/ New Orleans Saints running back, wide receiver, kick returner and punt returner, Darren Sproles. The signing is part of the 5th Annual Autograph Experience and will be held in Somerset, New Jersey.

The San Diego Chargers drafted Darren Sproles with a fourth round pick during the 2005 NFL Draft. Initially used to return kickoffs, Sproles gradually started to return punts, then line up as a running back and finally as a wide receiver. He spent five seasons with the Chargers before joining the New Orleans Saints in 2011. During his first season with the Saints, Sproles set a new single-season NFL record with 2,696 All-Purpose Yards (610 rushing, 710 receiving, 294 punt returns and 1,089 kick return yards). He was also on the receiving end of Drew Brees' single season passing yards record. In eight NFL seasons, Sproles has developed into the most widely used player in the NFL today. He has scored two TDs on kickoffs, three on punt returns, eleven rushing and 27 receiving. In March 2014, the Philadelphia Eagles completed a trade with the New Orleans Saints to bring in Sproles. With LeSean McCoy and Sproles in the backfield, the Eagles are expected to once again have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL.

Jamie Moyer is not the Oldest Player in Major League History

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, Colorado Rockies starting pitcher, Jamie Moyer became the oldest person in the history of Major League Baseball to win a game. He allowed only 2 runs (both unearned) over seven innings as the Rockies defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3. Check out the box score. His 49 years and 152 days beat the legendary, Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers who was 49 years and 70 days when he won his last career game on September 13, 1932.

With that being said, did you know that Jamie Moyer is not the oldest player in Major League Baseball history? In fact, (technically) he's not even close. The oldest player to ever play in a Major League game was Hall of Fame pitcher, Satchel Paige. Paige played most of his career barn storming and in the Negro Leagues. Jackie Robinson made his MLB debut in 1947 and Paige made his debut the next season (1948) at 41 years young. He ended up becoming the oldest player to win the Rookie of the Year award. He played in 178 baseball games from 1948-1953, however, his last and final major league appearance came 12 years later... in 1965. He was 59 years old, allowed 1 hit and struck out 1 over 3 innings of work. Check out the box score.

If Jamie Moyer plays again next season, he will become just the 6th player in MLB history to play after 50 years old. Here are the other five players and how old the were once they retired:

Jack Quinn - 50 years old (pitcher)
Charley O'Leary - 51 years old (shortstop)
Jim O'Rouke - 54 years old (outfielder, Member Baseball Hall of Fame)
Minnie Minoso - 57 years old (left fielder)
Satchel Paige - 59 years old (pitcher, Member Baseball Hall of Fame)

Facebook Challenge Reminder

I just wanted to remind everyone that we are about half way through our first Facebook Challenge. Once we get to 100 likes, I'll start the auction for this autographed Evan Longoria Gold Glove Award baseball. The opening bid will be $0.99.

I started the challenge back on March 22nd and we've picked up 49 likes in less than a month. Not bad, but we still have a ways to go. If everyone who has liked us so far got just one friend to like us, we'd hit the 100 mark within a few days.

I plan on doing another challenge to get to 200 likes. For that challenge, I'll set up a poll and will leave it up to you guys as to what item should go next, so keep the "Likes" coming and stay tuned for more details.

We appreciate your support.

Happy Jackie Robinson Day!

It was 65 years ago today that Jackie Robinson laced it up for the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field. This was one of the most important moments in the history of the United States as it not only opened the doors for African American men to play Major League Baseball, but it also served as a prominent civil rights moment for other areas of American life.

Before Jackie Robinson, their were only two other African-American men to ever play in the major leagues. They were brothers, Moses Fleetwood Walker and Welday Walker who both briefly played for the Toledo Blue Stockings in 1884. Moses joined the Blue Stockings in 1883 when the team was part of the Northwestern League, which a minor league from 1883-1884 (It ran again in 1886-1887). After the league disbanded in 1884, Toledo made the jump to the American Association (1882-1891), which was considered a Major League, thus making Moses Fleetwood Walker the first African American player in the history of Major League Baseball. Welday joined the team later in 1884. There time in the majors was very brief as the the Blue Stockings returned to the minor leagues in 1885 and were dissolved at the end of the season.

The Walker brothers continued to play in the various different minor leagues, but never again reached the major league level. They were essentially forced out of professional baseball as league after league started their unofficial ban on non-white baseball players. The ban remained in place until Brooklyn Dodgers general manager, Branch Rickey and Robinson had the courage to challenge the ban in 1947.
