That gets me to my main reason for posting something today. I went over the Journal Sentinel's website to see what they have to say about stuff today. I made the mistake of scrolling down to the sports area and clicking on an article my Michael Hunt. I know we are all aware of the blob that is Mike Hunt. He is not a gifted writer by any means. I'm surprised that he can use anything that isn't a mono-syllabic word. His article today is about instituting instant replay in baseball. He is all for this ridiculous idea. He is also interested in getting it started yesterday. What a d-bag!
I'm not sure how the rest of the contributors here QatB feel about instant replay in baseball (I know how Reid feels, and he agrees with me) but I hate the idea of it. There is a big push to make baseball games go quicker. Doesn't this seem counterproductive? There are so may more arguments against instant replay in baseball, but I don't feel like touching on them here. Reid has a great argument all set up. I hope he posts it here for all to read.
My suggestion for all of these disputed calls and cry babies is pretty simple. Fans, stop being idiots. In Houston this weekend, some idiot Astros' fans got in the way of Hunter Pence (pronounced under pants) robbing a home run and possibly saving the game for the home town team. Instead, the ball is a home run and idiot fans win again. Not all home runs, or not home runs, are thought to be the opposite of what they are due to idiot fans. Some are just hard to tell if they actually go over the wall. Players are in the way or some parks are just plan stupid and have dumb rules. My suggestion to clear this up is simple as well. Hit the weight room, Sally! Hit the ball farther. If you hit it over the wall by more than 2 inches, there wouldn't be a dispute.
Now that I am all upset because I read some crap by a bad writer (I refuse to link to this garbage because I don't want to drive readers there or allow him to think that he matters) I need to relax. Back to the gorgeous HD sights of Torrey Pines and watching two golfers that could probably play left handed and beat me. Go Tiger!
