WaPo columnist Mike Wise, my super talented multimedia star co-worker and possible Las Vegas all-star game weekend roommate, has requested your help. This will require you to post a comment. Do not read this if you are unwilling to post a comment.
"Can you ask your readers who they believe are the flashiest five ballplayers of all time?" Mike asks.
He has to do a graphic on the topic. He needs suggestions. He need to know what the pulse of the readers is, the pulse of the blogosphere, the pulse of that guy Marc and that other guy Unsilent Majority.
These were the preliminary names he presented: "Pistol Pete, Magic, Cousy, Earl Monroe, Jason Williams, etc."
I'm not sure if Jason Williams was a joke, but if it was, I laughed.
I would propose the following name: Lucien James "Luc" Longley.
No, no, seriously, Mike needs your help. Looking for flash. Have at it.
