Happy Birthday Hulk Hogan

What do Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan, and Hulk Hogan all have in common? They are all hands down the greatest all-time performers in their respective sports. It looked like The Golden Bear was about to be dethroned, but right now I can’t count on any more Majors from Tiger Woods. Hogan…

Robinson Cano is a FitzandVig masher

Robinson Cano smoked a line drive grand slam in the bottom of the 7th inning to break a 2-2 tie and spark the New York Good Guys to a 6-5 win over the State Farm Los Angeles Home Depot Angels of Anaheim Inc.  It was Cano’s 20th bomb of the season and third hit of the…

FitzandVig believe in Ivan Nova
