    Bloody well right. I haff to laff that the team-owning class has the rest of us running around thumping our chests and using words like "holy" when referring to their particular flavor of show business. MelBrooks/A-Rod/JennyLind, it's just another excuse to raise prices. Hee-haw, from this old donkey.

    I thought the most ironic thing about the A-Rod contract was that apparently it was his agent's idea to announce the decision during the World Series, and he subsequently decided to negotiate directly with the Yankees without the "benefit" of said agent, which says to me that he'd actually wanted to stay with the Bombers but his agent sabotaged him (in more ways than one). It's interesting to see that even filthy rich athletes can get screwed like that.

      Kenny Rogers, who is certainly important to the pitching staff of the Detroit Tigers in spite of being at the end of his career, had the same agent and just recently fired him.—–Bonds is solely being prosecuted because baseball is "Amurican, dammit, and we're agonna keep it pure", not because he lied or didn't lie. Others have lied to this same Grand Jury. Additionally, this is about distraction: keeping the minds of citizens distracted from the real crimes being committed.

    I'm pretty sure Sherman Potter said "horse puckey."

    When accused of being a bad role model for young, aspiring athletes (I think maybe for smoking in public), John Kruk retorted: "Lady, I'm not an athlete. I'm a baseball player."
