first_imgL.C. GREENWOODby Bill Neal#1. With Steeler camp less than a month away, the No. 1 thing on my agenda is Hollywood . . . as in “Hollywood Bags” . . . as in aka L.C. Greenwood. Message to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Committee, let’s go boys. Enough is enough. This man, this Steeler legend, this member of the greatest defensive line in NFL history, this 73½ career sack leader should have been in the Hall years ago. #4. Pirate slugger Pedro Alvarez not in the Home Run Derby would have been a crime. L.A. Dodger rookie Yasiel Puig not in the All-Star game is a crime. PEDRO ALVAREZ (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar) #3. Having dissed The Lone Ranger movie, and understandably so, allow me to offer some fair play. The #1 sleeper movie of the year is “20 Feet From Stardom.” About all the background singers of the 60’s and 70’s. It is Fan – tas – tic! Run see it now. I give it five stars.  #2. You really think LeBron will leave Miami and play with Kobe in L.A. . . . you really believe that . . . really? #5. Speaking of crimes, I hear they now have proof that Aaron Hernandez killed John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. MARILYN MONROE (AP Photo)last_img read more
