On January 31, 1865, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery in America. The amendment read, "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude...shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." All men are created equal. ya' know, I really don't think the 13th amendment is well understood; besides, why do we have to have government telling us of such a simple fact of life? because people are evil. Jeremiah 17:9 - "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it?" now you see I am of the theory that people are good..truly; and a person has to be tempted and taught to be evil Well my dear friend (and I mean that) the Bible says we are all evil by nature and our "good deeds" are performed in defiance of the evil inside of us well my dear friend (and I also truly men that) I am no capable of discussing such a matter with you...your knowledge of scripture far surpasses my understanding and intreptation...I am shocked that I should suddenly consider myself evil...after all these years of thinking I was okay...working to be good...striving to be better...somewhere along the line I was taught that God loves us and made us in His likeness...He wouldn't make us evil???...I mean even the devil wasn't evil when he was first created??? if I'm embarrassing myself please let me know...obviously I need to do some research and some serious soul searching
Born January 31
1734 - Robert Morris, merchant (signed Declaration of Independence) – big name in eastern PA had a brother Philip...very involved in the tobacco industry...maybe?...was there even a peson named Philip Morris? yes, he played Jackie Chiles ah yes, of course I remember...now our "Seinfeld, the Broadway Experience" had Spike Lee playing Jackie Chiles...eeh, must have been one of my impulse selections impulsive acts can sometimes be very good well, I am quite often very impulsive, as can be evidenced from the aforementioned response...I am very hesitant that much good will come of it
1892 - Eddie Cantor, NYC, comedian (Eddie Cantor Comedy Theater) very talented fellow...had strange eyes kind of like that Mr. Bean character yes and also Marty Feldman...and sometimes 115 when he's had wa-a-ay too much coffee how much is way too much coffee? anything over 5 cups during the day and an additional 2 or 3 cups in the afternoon/early evening would pretty much do the trick 
1914 - Jersey Joe Walcott, heavyweight boxing champ (1951-52) – became Sheriff of Camden Cty NJ after his fighting career sort of like how wrestlers become governors of MN (not sure of the spelling...as if that ever stopped me...HAH!)  you were correct, it's wrestlers.what can one say or write or eve think regarding such genius...you simply pause, soak it all in and find a place for it on the wall HA, genius ... I say HA!
1957 - Brett "the Hitman" Hart, Alberta Canada, WWF champion ran for Governor of Sarasota...was not successful what a surprise actually, I'm shocked he didn't win...it's a known fact that wreasstllers (sp.?) make great politicians...maybe you are correct again
1958 - Rafael Santana, shortstop (Yankees, Mutts) what's wrong with this darn bucket...I need one of those fancy orange ones from Home Depot...say, is it windy in here?1 get 2 HAH!...2?..knoing me, I'd be bond and determined to fill them both up...can you even imagine ...  frightening! sadly I can imagine it I think this sort of thing has a lot to do with one's nature...He did not build us all exactly the same...it would be boring
1963 - John Dye, Amory Mass, actor (Andrew-Touched by an Angel) – nice show very good show also starring the wonderful Roma Downey yeah her too you are aware she does Bible movies now...ya' know...very good ones too...onthe History Channel yes I enjoyed the series very much. Some strayed a bit from the Scripture, but mostly right on well thankfully, get ready for a new and exciting installment...this time on NBC starting Easter Sunday night...April 5th 9:00 PM...it's exciting...major network, prime time...can't wait to see the ratings
1981 - Justin Timberlake, Memphis, TN, singer – ehhck you are being way too kind you are right just cancelled a show here (First Niagara Arena, Buffalo, NY) for this Saturday night...had a show last night (Thurs.), another tonight but already cancels the Buffalo show for health reasons...go figure his health or Buffalo's?? well done, you are always so thoughtful

Unexpectedly, Jeter’s absence finally comes front and center in Yankees camp


Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 05, 2015 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Derek Jeter


There was a Yankees captain after Lou Gehrig, and a Yankees captain after Thurman Munson, but general manager Brian Cashman says there shouldn’t be one after Derek Jeter.


“As far as I’m concerned, and I’m not to decision maker on this, that captaincy should be retired with No. 2,” Cashman said in an ESPN Radio interview on Thursday. “I wouldn’t give up another captain’s title to anyone else.”


Just like that, Jeter’s retirement finally became the biggest story in Yankees camp.


Derek JeterWhile the team was playing to a 2-1 win against the Pirates in Bradenton — with only two everyday big leaguers in the lineup, and Esmil Rogers being the biggest name on the mound — Cashman’s comment resonated, despite the fact he said something similar after Jeter’s final game in September.


“I think there’s leadership that comes a lot of different ways,” Cashman said in the Yankees clubhouse after today’s game. “Derek wore it so well for so long, but we’ve had a number of guys leading this club over the years. Mariano (Rivera) led the relievers, (Andy) Pettitte at times or (Roger) Clemens or whoever led the starters. Leadership comes in different forms or fashions. Joe is obviously the manager. We’ve had it in a lot of different forms and fashions. I don’t think we need a captaincy, personally, but obviously Derek wore it well.”


Jeter was named captain in 2003, and his 10-plus seasons is the longest captaincy in franchise history. With his retirement, the Yankees have no captain this season. Which isn’t unusual.


Gehrig became captain in 1935 and carried the title until he died in 1941. Without Gehrig, the Yankees didn’t have another captain until Munson in 1976. When Munson died in ’79, the Yankees didn’t have another captain until 1982. Before Jeter, the last Yankees captain was Don Mattingly, who retired in 1995, leaving the Yankees without a captain through those late 90s championships.


“I didn’t think we needed a captain this year,” manager Joe Girardi said. “And I think guys need to lead (without it). I don’t think you necessarily have to have a captain to have leaders. … We give the freedom to our guys in the clubhouse, whoever wants to speak up, I don’t care how many days (in the big leagues) you have, you can speak up.”


Another Yankees captain? Even Cashman acknowledged someone worthy of the title might emerge years down the road, but Cashman finds the distinction unnecessary.


“I don’t think it’s necessarily something that’s important for us to fill,” he said. “I think it will fill on its own, naturally. Leadership steps up in different forms and fashions whether you’re on the team plane, in the clubhouse, on the field of play, in the bullpen or in the manager’s office. It just comes in different forms and fashions.”



LouGehrigDayThe Yankees’ media guide lists 16 confirmed former Yankees captains, though the team acknowledges there were probably more than that. For example, the media guide notes that there are several references to Roy Hartzell as a former Yankees captain, but dates of his captaincy can’t be confirmed. The title used to be mandatory for each team before managers began to take on the duty of things like changing pitchers and positioning fielders.


From the media guide, these are the confirmed captains in Yankees history:


1. Clark Griffith 1903-05
2. Norman Elberfeld 1906
3. Willie Keeler 1909
4. Hal Chase 1910-11
5. Frank Chance start 1913 to midseason
6. Rollie Zeider mid 1913 to end of season
7. Roger Peckinpaugh 1914-21
8. Babe Ruth March 13 to May 25, 1922 (only active for six of those games)
9. Everett Scott mid 1922 to June 16, 1925
10. Lou Gehrig April 12, 1935 to June 2, 1941
11. Thurman Munson April 17, 1976 to August 2, 1979
12. Graig Nettles January 29, 1982 to March 30, 1984
13. Willie Randolph March 4, 1986 to October 2, 1988
14. Ron Guidry March 4, 1986 to July 12, 1989
15. Don Mattingly February 28, 1991 through 1995
16. Derek Jeter June 3, 2003 through 2014
