Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers
qualified for the 2013 induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. To give you an
idea, steroid user Barry Bonds chances of getting into the Hall are smaller
than Bond’s shrunken testicles.
with something like 20 candidates, nobody qualified for the 2013 induction into
the Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s like the Hall of Fame is harder to get into
than Taylor Swift.
Springfield, Illinois, a priest had to call police because he was left in the
church basement in handcuffs wearing a leather S&M mask and a ball gag in
his mouth. The priest is writing a book about it. It’s called “50 Shades of
favorite part of this is how hard was the person laughing when they left him
43-year-old North Carolina high school teacher was arrested for having sex with
her male 17-year-old student. She claims she was helping him with his math by
showing him how many times 17 goes into 43.
Since you asked:
do we know about the known baseball steroid cheats? Besides they can hit a baseball a
mile, or throw it 100 MPH, and they have big muscles.
are all unmitigated and unashamed A$$holes.
didn’t know the extent that Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire were A$$holes
until they pompously lied to congress. We suspected Sammy Sosa was an A$$hole
when known great-guy players, like Mark Grace, despised him.
Bonds? Come on. Jose Conseco? A stupid A$$hole. Alex Rodriguez sets the tone
for all modern day A$$holes.
Clemens was such an A$$hole he ruined a man’s life, his personal trainer,
sending him to prison. He had sex with a 16-year-old singer.
in sports is like pornography, hard to define, but you know it when you see it.
Stealing signs? No. Lying to the base runner about what is going to happen? No.
Loading up the ball? Not if you don’t get caught.
corking a bat is cheating, just like taking steroids is cheating. And someone
has to be an unmitigated A$$hole to knowingly and repeatedly cheat at the sport
they presumably love.
said character is a determining factor in getting into the Hall of Fame. Babe
Ruth and Ty Cobb were colossal A$$holes, both probably killed people driving
drunk, and yet they belong in the Hall.
If the rules on betting on baseball weren't so specific following the Black Sox scandal, then Pete Rose, a shameless A$$hole, should be in the Hall of Fame. But they are and he isn't and shouldn't be.
All things being equal, maybe Pete Rose is in the Hall of Fame. But because the rules against betting on baseball are so clear, the question is: was Pete Rose so great you can overlook those rules? The answer is no. Owning a record does not assure induction. Look at Roger Maris.
Pete Rose was arguably only the fifth best player on his own team behind Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, Tom Seaver and Pete Perez. Maybe. Ken Griffey Senior?
got it on unquestionable authority from someone who was involved in a sports
marketing transaction that Willy Mays is an unbelievably bitter A$$hole. Joe
DiMaggio was an A$$hole. Mickey Mantle was popular with his teammates, but his
own kids, his ex-wife and thousands of mistreated fans know he was an A$$hole.
an A$$hole doesn’t keep you out of the Hall of Fame. But it is a good indicator
of who would cheat with steroids. No doubt in my mind if steroids had been
around long before, Mays, Mantle, DiMaggio, Ruth and Cobb would have all used
they weren’t and they didn’t.
