Quotable!
"The more patient you are, the better manager you'll be. When I first came up as a manager, I was too demanding. I had to learn never to expect a man to do something he is not capable of doing. Now I try to analyze and find out their capabilities and then never ask them to exceed them."
--Danny Murtaugh, Pirates manager

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums or our Technology & Science forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows, survivors of hurricanes or aircraft accidents, etc. from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.
