No.

I think there was one guy who's a journeyman relief pitcher for various MLB teams...but he spends most of the season in AAA.  So, no.

Michael Milkin (the king of the junk bonds who went to jail) went to my high school. Talk show radio host Bill Handel in LA also went to my high school and in fact was in my class, but I never knew him.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Baseball players for some reason are not a rariety despite our schools small size come to think of it,

We had former RP Bobby Jones (the black Bobby Jones, not the white one w/the Mets), a pitcher whose on the White Sox 40-man, a 3rd round pick in last year's draft, and 3 or 4 other A ball or higher players

I believe I saw Paul Wellstone's name on the list of wrestling champs at Yorktown High.  Not sure if this is the same person as the deceased Minnesota senator, though.

I went to high school with one of the lead actors in the Final Destination series -- Ryan Merriman.  He and I were actually good buddies back in the day and only lived less than half a mile from each other.  He also starred in the mid-1990s sitcom "Mommies".

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Probably, since the deceased Minnesota senator had been a wrestling champion and was born in D.C.
