KOBS voting: Frank Robinson vs. Matt Stover today!

OK, so this is a mismatch. But that’s really not the point.

Maybe today we should take a moment to consider what an accomplishment it’s been for Matt Stover to STILL be a part of the 2008 Baltimore Ravens.

He survived the move from Cleveland (he’s TRULY the last man standing from that fiasco and picket signs and wearing the Reeses Pieces helmets) and he’s STILL kicking in the NFL. And he’ll forever be a Raven.

He’s the franchise’s all-time leader in points scored (and it ain’t even close, really) and he’s been a great citizen for Baltimore and an all-around decent dude.

As far as Frank Robinson goes, well his credentials here in six seasons are good enough for him to win the whole enchillada in the Toyota Live Web King of Baltimore Sports. Brooks Robinson put baseball on the Baltimore map. Frank Robinson made winning and championships a standard here, even 40 years later.

Stover stopped me after a Ravens practice two weeks ago and made this prediction: “Frank Robinson is gonna CRUSH me!”

I’m not sure that he’s wrong, but it’d be nice if Matt got at least a couple of votes…

Voting for the first round of 16 matchups will continue on Monday…

Good luck Matt! (At least you’re a nicer guy than Frank!)
