It is no coincidence that these sports-radio callers sound similar to the people who would ridicule Jackie Robinson for being the first African- American to play major league baseball.
Times change; people don't.

The Aaron patrol
Aaron Rowand deserves his own fan club. I realize these clubs are based on a twist on a player's name: Sal's Pals, Ryan's Hawaiians, the Wolfpack and the Duckpond are a few.
My suggestion: His loyalists can call themselves Aaron's Barons. They can put on funny red pilot's hats, goggles and a Phillies cape. They can help him patrol the outfield from enemy missiles (batted balls). How's that for a hook?

Size doesn't matter
After watching the first game of the Stanley Cup finals, I wonder why the Flyers can't seem to acquire a player with heart and soul like Rod Brind'Amour?
Wait, at one time he did wear a Flyers' uniform! Why is it apparent to everyone except Ed Snider and Bob Clarke that speed and skill and heart and soul (not size) make championship teams?
