This is How Bad Kansas City is Taking the World Series Loss

This is How Bad Kansas City is Taking the World Series Loss

Last night I was stuck in the Kansas City Airport for a bonus 4 hours because of a flight delay. Of course, I hop online to see if there is any free agent news in the world of baseball. I got to the Padres main page okay, but the first article I clicked on produced the screen you see above. Same with the next article and the next. Apparently, KC is so traumatized, they’re treating MLB.com like a porn site.

Kanye West Goes Ricky & Exposes His Secret Identity

Kanye West Goes Ricky & Exposes His Secret Identity

Rickey HendersonKanye West went Ricky in his most recent interview in Rolling Stone.

“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means,” West said. “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture.

I say Ricky because that’s what I call people who refer to themselves in the third person. Nobody was as entertaining at it as Ricky Henderson, which probably explains why Kanye has gone Ricky – he can’t abide anyone being better at something than himself. So, Kanye has gone Ricky. Now, he’s going to have a lot of catching up to do if he wants to best these gems by Ricky:

The Needle And The Damage Done

baseball-roidsIt’s Judgement Day for players from the Steroid Era of baseball. Maybe by the time this is posted, but certainly in the next few hours we will know just how much cheating matters in the eyes of the Baseball Writer’s Association. The 600 members will announce the results of the Hall of Fame Voting and we will know if any of the stars of the age of juicing will make it in. Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Mike Piazza are eligible. So are Roger Clemens and Craig Biggio.

If history tells us anything, they won’t make it in —at least not on the first ballot. Voters have already snubbed Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, and Jeff Bagwell, though they still remain on the ballot for 2013.

Probably the biggest tragedy lies with Bonds and Clemens. Both had Hall of Fame worthy careers before falling for the big lie of steroids. The price for adding a few more lines in the record book may ultimately keep them both out of the Hall. Unless of course they add a syringe shaped wing to the Baseball Hall of Fame, something I’ve been promoting for years. Add the steroid wing and you can include guys from this era and not feel bad about all the cheating with performance enhancing drugs.

There is one player who should go in. I know many of you are going to think I’m crazy or write me hate mail, but I feel Jose Canseco should be elected. He is the only player of the era to actually tell the truth about steroids. If his book, Juiced, had not been written, the league might still be sweeping steroids under the rug and skinny players like pre-roids Barry would still be turning into human bobble heads!

Carry on, Citizens!
