It must of been clean and wonderful in Columbus back then without you.
Of course since you hide behind anonymous names to spew your silly insults at me, we'll never know what the place is like now *with* you, my little clownish friend.

Columbus Clippers were a baseball team, one of many made up of area BARBERS. Some came from the Industrial High School. They played against local men's church teams. They were not a professional team and they played in no leagues. Just local barbers and students from the Industrial School.
Excellent information, thanks.

That local bob dylan impersonator played on that team back in 1893. Maybe you could ask him about it.
You mean 1983, Edgewood Red Devils?

That is a Pop Warner team. For Fifth Grade aged kids. Connery was much older than that in 1983.
Do you know him?

From p.58, in the vanity published book "METCALF MEMORIES" REF.M230, Reference Section, Columbus Library. The book was published in the 1960's by the Metcalf family, owners of METCALF'S clothing store and barber shop. Metcalfs was a barber shop and clothing store on Broad Street for over sixty years.
More interestng stuff, thanks again.

It is amazing how the team with the toughest reputation ended up years later with so many dubious personalities. Several years back one was all over the Ledger Enquirer for trying to diddle girls on the Jordan softball team. Lots of divorces, drunks, wife beaters, etc. Makes coach Sandusky proud. Guess maybe Little League Football problems are a lot like the ones with the BOY SCOUTS. Maybe too much macho pressure on kids leads to all the crazy stuff later. Its true with all the gay leather bondage S&M culture as most say they first were drawn to it because of their youth football and locker room experiences. Maybe football has an effect on it. Too much close quarters testosterone. If it wasn't for all the weirdness football and other sports would be all right. The Canadians and Russians have lots of similar problems with the former Little League Ice Hockey Team members too though. Same with European Soccer and Rugby. All the same it seems. The VILLAGE PEOPLE didn't write YMCA based on nothing ya' know.
The Leo Scott tragedy... he was one of the Edgewood red Devils as well, if my memory serves me well.

One dove off the Appalachia Cola Bridge during Christmas. He was friends with a GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL rich type. Catamite it is often speculated. The rich poof even bought the bridge diver's son a piano. They were supposedly on holiday looking for a boat for the rich dude to buy. Out of the blue the guy jumped out of the rich dude's car, stripped off his clothes an ODE TO BILLY JOE right off the top. They found him about three weeks later. How much did THE RED DEVIL'S have an impact on this final play. Lots of these big sports stars are shooting themself in the heart so scientists can autopsy their brains. I say it is more than football head injury leading to later life long depression. Perhaps it is just THE SANDUSKY EFFECT.
Wow... this thread has taken on a bizarre turn.
