Baseball Says Thank You

Cutch Hug

MLB thanks the fans, but how do I say, “Thank you,” to baseball, besides forking over the cash for my season tickets, of course?

TURNER FIELD GET UP

The Atlanta Braves have thrown the gauntlet in the arena of making a video and it’s a mic drop on all the other teams who didn’t go there.

We have a song, folks. We’re pretty much obligated to win at this point, don’t you think? Read more…

Ryan Braun And The Ridiculousness That Is Major League Baseball

Ryan Braun

You can add Ryan Braun to the growing list of disgraced athletes who have been caught using PEDs. From the sound of things, A-Rod isn’t too far behind and my distaste for baseball is at a point where I just don’t care to support it anymore.

Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, accepted his 65 game suspension on Monday and will forfeit the remaining $3 million or so dollars on his $8.5 million dollar salary.

After being handed a 65-game suspension from Major League Baseball, Brewers slugger Ryan Braun issued the following “my bad, dog”:

As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers’ organization.

Despite acknowledging “some mistakes” in his injection choices, Braun remained steadfast in his refusal to apologize for his role in the 1992 film, Encino Man.

Encino Man was a powerful statement on the emptiness of our times and the ugly prejudices of the American teenager. My character, Link, showed us, through his child-like amazement at our modern world, the wonders all around us. Most of which we routinely take for granted. Read more…
