A Selig Foot Roast

Bud Selig went and said something really stupid. After first expressing his displeasure at the fact that Manny decided to rest his knee instead of playing in the All Star game, which the AL won again, he left the boundries of sanity with his next thought. He said, OUTLOUD, and to reporters, that the pitchers who were elected to the All Star team should be PROHIBITED from pitching on the Sunday before the All Star festivities. I say festivities because it is still an EXHIBITION game, but oh boy! To pass a law that would prevent teams from starting what would be in most cases their best pitcher for a regular season game, a game that counts, is sheer idiocy! I guess we should be used to that from you, Bud, but you really put your foot in your mouth this time (see title). My goodness! Senility early? Or, to quote George Costanza's father, "Serenity now."

That's OK. I've done the same thing. And what Selig said, well, he should have thought about it before he said it. I'm sure this view of his will be fodder for sports people around the land. But you read it here first. Yay!

say WHAT??? i hope he is prepared for a lot of pitchers with team-player attitudes on teams who stand a chance at the post season to decline to pitch if THAT disaster gets passed.

Julie, this is something that Cyn can better give you an answer. I was lucky to get it right. Where you paste it into is your template. And then republish. But I don't want you to be unsure, because I'm unsure about describing it. But you take the code supplied by the sitemeter and paste it into your template. For me, I pasted at the bottom. That's why if you go to my blog, you'll see the counter thingy at the bottom. But boy, when you do it, they tell you everything!!!! Where people, your readers (doesn't that sound nice) came from, and everything. I think Cyn is better to explain, or your Dad. At last resort, I can explain it.....and it's the same thing with adding links.you add them to the template, then click "save template changes", and then republish. You are mor ecomputer literate than me, but see if Cyn can help. At last resort, I can explain it to you, or your Dad. See what you can do. But your writing is the most important thing. And you got that down!

And Dawn, I was dumbfounded with his comments too. And thanks for commenting. I'm still a little scared of a lock-up to stop by your place, but I will at work, where if the computer locks up, it won't!

Just as he had ruined the Milwaukee Brewers through neglect, Budster now brings his utter nonsense to an exhibition game:

Now he's a candidate to replace Tim Mc Dimwit, as Buck's object of insult, on "FOX Saturday Baseball."
