9. If Billboard is the only chart that matters to you, his record there is nothin’ to sneeze at, neither. His 44 Country Number Ones are still a record, ever since he broke Conway Twitty’s record of 40. Still, they wanted to believe it was, like all of us want to believe our own self serving delusions and rationalizations.As with most things in life, this issue comes down to personal responsibility. It’s like smokers who blame cigarettes or obese people who blame fast food or, ahem, newspaper columnists who complain of not making much money or losing their job in a dying industry.On this football Sunday, let’s remember what former Michigan State University football coach Duffy Daugherty and Geen Bay Packers legend Vince Lombardi are both credited with saying: “Football is not a contact sport, it’s a collision sport. Dancing is a contact sport.” End of description.And with this truism, the players’ passion for the sport collides with their own self preservation.
Miami is the first NFL team since the 1970 merger to play in its home stadium only twice in the first 10 weeks. That and the marquee opponent should have Joe Robbie’s place rocking for Dallas’ first regular season visit since 2007. These may be two teams with a combined 6 12 record, but it still feels like an “event” game.
The game was stopped because of Little League 10 run rule.Daniel Fernandez was the starter for Panama in that one and recorded just one out, allowing two runs and two hits. He had another shaky beginning in this one, but settled down in a hurry this time.Fernandez walked the first three batters he faced, and a couple of visits to the mound by Gonzalez didn seem to have much effect. But with a teammate already throwing in the bullpen, the left hander wriggled out of the jam.Fernandez struck out Mendoza and got Axcel Mandujano to line to third baseman Armando Lopez, who stepped on the bag for a double play.Mexico starter Brandon Meza also struggled, and he wasn so lucky.Meza walked two of his first three batters.
