So, here’s the thing Bud Selig: screw you. No, seriously- screw you. Forget the 1994 debacle, forget the All-Star Game tie, forget the steroid & drug problems, forget the DirectTV finger you flipped to fans everywhere… this time, you’ve gone too far. Instead of spending time focusing on the HUGE problems facing Major League Baseball right now (the ‘roids and Extra Innings being two of them), you’ve chosen instead to nitpick Craig Biggio (aka my First Baseball Boyfriend) for wearing a pin on his hat. During spring training. That he’s worn for almost 20 years with no problem. That represents CHILDREN WITH CANCER.
Bud Selig hates cancer kids. And puppies. And Jesus.
For real? This causes you so much distress, Bud, that you got a lackey in your office to fax the Astros clubhouse to tell Craig to stop wearing the offending pin (again, the same pin he’s worn for 20 years)- and even better, just to add a little bit extra twist to the knife, you have them include a picture of him wearing the pin on Wednesday (as though perhaps Craig and the Astros are too stupid to know what pin you’re talking about). Why? What could possibly be the big freakin’ deal?
It’s good to know the commish cares.
