    I dunno, seems to me we were taught the fundamentals growing up including sliding (and I didn't play in high school). The only rules I remember was pitchers couldn't try to throw curve balls in...

    Con artists of all flavors have a way of sucking people in. And to quote Richard Feynman, "you are the easiest person to fool." I'm sure AS is incapable of not fooling himself.
