    I loved Harrison Ford NOT as Harrison Ford.. his performance was almost 'not a performance'.. he was Branch Rickey...at least to me

    I liked the movie, as well. From what I know, the movie took great care to be accurate with the story. That made it more interesting to me. The only thing omitted was the fact that Jackie was
    severely pigeon-toed. But you have to allow for some artistic license of what you want to include or exclude. I also learned about several things that I did not know, like why, personally, Branch Rickey wanted to break baseball's color line.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
