Slammin' Sam on Sports Media Congratulates Andre Dawson!

Good afternoon, all! As I sit here compiling the Thursday Edition of Slammin’ Sam, snowflakes continue to frolic hither and thither with no destination in particular. And just like snowflakes, each athlete comes to play with different characteristics, hoping that he or she can add to the beautiful sporting landscape.

Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer - that’s right, he’s finally in among his peers - Andre Dawson, was the same way. “The Hawk” accented his power game with an arm that resembled Buddy the Elf subduing adversaries in Central Park, and could Dawson fly on the base paths. Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has more.

Roberto Alomar excelled in the middle infield. A member of 12 All-Star teams and a recipient of 10 Gold Gloves, voters somehow refused him admission. Why? Alomar and a lot of people have no idea.

On to tonight’s clash of the titans – Texas and Alabama – for college football’s national championship. Here is the latest from both teams' local papers.

Finally, for those who think Cowboys QB Tony Romo is doomed for a turnover-marred repeat against the Eagles this weekend, you might want to take a closer look at his ’09 numbers, specifically the one that is in single digits – only nine INTs this season. Nine. Which Romo will show up this weekend?
