FIRE JOE MORGAN: This Has Officially Gone Too Far


Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

This Has Officially Gone Too Far

Seriously, Bob Elliott. Get a grip.

Tyson Gillies can see line drives off the bat, feel a ball snuggle into his glove, smell fresh-cut grass in centre or taste a victory.

It's that fifth sense which gives him trouble. Well, it gave him trouble for a while.

Gillies is hearing impaired. He has 30% hearing in one ear and 60% in the other.

The Seattle Mariners signed the Kamloops, B.C., resident, selected in the 25th round last June, to a pro contract Wednesday before the midnight deadline. Had he not signed he would have been eligible to re-enter the draft.

A very inspirational story. How are you going to ruin it?

Once again baseball is an equal opportunity employer:

Jim Abbott, born without a hand, tosses a no-hitter at Yankee Stadium.

A fantastic moment for physically-disabled persons everywhere.

Curtis Pride, born deaf, hits a game-tying, pinch-hit, double for the Montreal Expos in 1993. He says later he heard the cheers ... in his heart.

Gives me goosebumps. A wonderful story.

David Eckstein, told he was too small too often, earns World Series most valuable player honours as the St. Louis Cardinals itty-bitty shortstop in 2006.

Oh boy.

Serious birth defects...being kind of short.

Serious birth defects...being kind of short.

Yeah, I guess that's roughly equal.
