    What's that sound??? :icon_eek: :icon_eek:

    It's the sound of Nomar's bat cracking as he hits it out of the ballpark...again and again and again....(LA is 2:40 into it but the whole clip is good...)...and again and then again...

    Thanks for sharing, Kimmie! :tup:

    Unfortunately, I can't access youtube from work. I'll have to wait to be inspired by that when I get home. :)

    I would have liked to have met you in real life. Next time for sure.

    As for the Pads, they are my team. Football is number 1 for me always but I've been a Pad fan since Tito Fuentes. :tup:

    Kenny Lofton follows through on an RBI single against the Colorado Rockies to put the Dodgers ahead 5-4 in the seventh inning.

    Driving in the go-ahead run is always inspiring.

    The frail-lookin dude is Rolf Benirske, the Chargers kicker in the 80's who was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease (http://www.ccfa.org/info/about/crohns), and became very ill.

    The big lumox walkin nextta him is Louie Kelcher, a Defensive Tackle for the Chargers during that same period.

    On this day, Rolf was designated a Co-Captain to go to the middle of the field for the pre-game coin toss. He was so weak, had to be carried by Kelcher to participate in this ceremony.

    I wasn't there...I was...well...somewhere else, but I heard there wasn't a dry set of eyes in the whole stadium. Trumpie can fill this part in better than I.

    Turns out Benirske recovered from this near-death experienceta kick again for the Chargers.

    Thats the qwik an dirty version, but I heard about, whereever I was, and it affected me deeply.

    That pretty much sums it up. If I remember correctly, Rolf dropped to under 90 pounds during his illness.
