Quote Of The Day: Henry Aaron Edition


It’s been 40 years since Hammerin’ Hank Aaron hit career home run 715 off of Al Downing of the Dodgers but he’s still a slugger:

“We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

Since Aaron grew up in Alabama, he knows whereof he speaks.
