great sentiment

No steroids for the Babe, just beer and hot dogs. I remember exactly where I was the day that Babe Ruth died. I sure hated to hear that news.

Perhaps not. But if we're dealing with humans here. Even the heroic few filled to the absolute brim with 'can do' remain ridiculously easy to kill. Martin Luther King comes to mind. So does Pat Tillman.

And in the spirit of "the babe" we ALL need to push on to ensure this republic stays free.

Well that's bad news for the Israelis and Palestinians.

Maybe, but you definitely CAN beat the person who gives up or doesn't even try. Better to die with your boots on fighting instead of starving to death in a concentration camp. Never give up for what you truly believe in.
