I'm grateful to Zimmerman for writing an article about a top offensive lineman. Not that the usual "super running back" articles are boring; it's just that it's time a little credit was given to the hardest-working players on any football team. Oftentimes, being an offensive lineman means existing in total obscurity—unless you're a contract holdout—while brutalizing yourself every play.
In my mind, Hannah is indisputably "the best offensive lineman of all time," and just think, he probably hasn't even reached his prime. I thank him for giving us younger guys someone to look up to in a positive way.

DON'T HOLD THE MUSTARD
Please tell Ronald MacDonald of the Mets' Triple A Tidewater Tides to take heart (SCORECARD, July 27). There are others with names that spark a riotous response from teammates and fans. If I'm not dogging it on the sandlots, I'm a hot dog. And lots of times I can't cut the mustard.
But the bottom line is that all this banter creates publicity, and any publicity is better than none.
Incidentally, I used to be a vendor at Three Rivers Stadium. Three guesses as to what I sold.
