    Is his name Barry or Berry? I always thought it was Barry. Barry is not a fruit. Let's just go with what they were known as a pro athlete. I just never heard anyone say Berry Sanders but I may be wrong and if so Berry is good. OFC

    There was a joke when I was a kid about Pirate pitcher Bob Veale and his little brother Cutlet. I had to look it up to be sure it wasn't a true story.
