Chicks just don’t seem to dig the long ball like they used to. How else to explain the seeming disregard for Jim Thome's entrance into the all-exclusive 600 home run club. And can we really be blamed? The fact is, we did care, we really really cared, and we were all dooped. Taken for a ride by the elusive hand of performance enhancers. If these milestones are to be at all restored, America needs a masher to believe in again. Though Thome has never actually be caught, having come up through the steroid era is hard to get past. We need a hitter for the new generation, someone to take some of the tarnish off of the four-bagger and resurrect what was once our most beloved sports achievement. Truth is, we may never have another truly suspicion-free ballplayer to hit 600, or even 500 for that matter. But if you’re, like me, grasping at someone to believe in, these nine might not be such terrible options to get behind.
- Albert Pujols (Age 33) 492 home runs to date
- Miguel Cabrera (Age 30) 365 home runs to date
- Prince Fielder (Age 29) 285 home runs to date
- Adam Dunn (Age 33) 440 home runs to date
- Mark Teixeira (Age 33) 341 home runs to date
- Paul Konerko (Age 37) 434 home runs to date
- Adrian Beltre (Age 34) 376 home runs to date
- Adrian Gonzalez (Age 31) 235 home runs to date
- Mike Trout (Age 22) 62 home runs to date
People tend to look at rock stars as larger than life and cooler than cool. Truth is, a lot of em are just as dorky as you or me. (Well not me of course, but you get the idea.) Sometimes you just gotta fake it if you wanna make it in this world, and for this crew, that was probably the right decision. They say its all in the name. While a great name alone won't make you a star, an awful one could be the dealbreaker. Would we have been able to tolerate a fire-breathing, blood-spitting madman named Chaim? Could we possibly have put up with Xzibit's gangsta swagger if we knew he was really Alvin Joiner IV? Would we think Vanilla Ice was as cool as we do if he went by his real name, Robert Van Winkle? Um, nevermind. Anyways, its time to pull away the curtain and reveal some of the most shocking, embarressing, and downright absurd birth names in the world of music.
