RIP Hank Aaron

One of baseball's greatest and most influential players. Such a loss.

RIP, Hank. Much respect.

Six feet tall, ~180 lb.
No big head, no steroid body. Not sure if they make them like Henry Aaron anymore.

I remember watching the replay of 714 on TV. There wasn't a "sports channel" but they covered it on the evening news. THAT says something!

Not to discount this at all, but networks are scrambling for content right now due to a lot of shows not taping during covid. I think its great, but it's quite possible someone was like.. "well, we can replay old episodes of family feud, or throw up Hank Aarons record breaking home run game."

I was more referring to the original event in 1974. Not disagreeing, just clarifying.

Ahh. Sorry, I misunderstood. I get it now

I thought you meant they were replaying the original game. My bad.
