Daily Cartoon! Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue!

It’s been a long time since I’ve put fingers to keyboard for one of these so I wanted to make it a good one.

Folks, when I was a kid, Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue was a fucking happening! We were still heavy into the “Just Say No To Drugs” era in the States which literally meant nothing to me since my 8 year-old ass had absolute zero access to drugs to even consider saying no to, but it did mean we got some terrific animated specials concerning the dangers of recreational drug use.

This originally aired in the US on April 21, 1990 and was simulcast across all four major networks in the Saturday morning cartoon blocks. I can remember being in the 3rd grade and having this be part of the announcements because it was THAT fucking major. Not because any of us really cared about saying “no” to drugs at the time, but because it sounded like the most bad-ass team up of cartoon characters that would ever exist.

I don’t really remember the specifics of it outside of a bunch of characters helping a kid get her brother off the pot or something, but I do remember being disappointed that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were such a tiny part of it. The Turtles were over as fuck at the time and I wanted them to be major players.  Continue reading

2018 IBWAA Hall of Fame Ballot Reveal!

It’s one of my favorite times of the year! Since becoming a member of the Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) in 2015, I’ve taken great joy in getting to vote on year-end awards and Hall of Fame.

Just because I feel like I always need to explain this: the IBWAA is a distinct and different group from the BBWAA which is the group of writers who vote on the actual recognized awards and participate in the actual selection process for the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum that you all know. The IBWAA Hall of Fame is a separate, non-physical entity that has many similarities as far as the people elected, but there are differences there as well. For a breakdown of last year’s IBWAA voting, click here and catch up on the results. As you’ll notice, we selected Vladimir Guerrero last season and Edgar Martinez the year before which is why they won’t show up on this year’s IBWAA ballot.

Where as the BBWAA can only vote for a maximum of 10 players, the IBWAA allows us up to 15. That doesn’t mean I have to select 15, but this year, I actually did go over 10 which felt really easy to do based on the glut of what I perceive to be qualified candidates. Continue reading
