Wouldn't have happened to a real athlete.

Just my opinion.... baseball sucks.
 
2003-03-03 09:29:57 AM  
Sexson said of the injury, "Ridiculous."

I'd say that about sums it up . . .
 
2003-03-03 10:17:04 AM  
Big deal. It was Richie Sexson. This just means he will have two less strikeouts this spring training.

I think he should go tanning with Marty Cordova.

Therein lies the difference between a 'sport' and a 'game'. Athletes are needed for sports whereas intellect plays more into a 'game' (ie: golf, billards, etc.)

Baseball is a great game to attend - the whole ballpark feeling and all, but boring as hell to watch on tv. The whole lot are overpaid tubs of goo. The local, minor teams are the true players of this game... not a bunch of pampered, rich bi+ches like these asscaps.

Baseball is great on a sunday afternoon after drinking all weekend, lying on the couch, going in and out of sleep. of course I am a cubs fan so go figure.

Baseball Sucks

Footbal Rules

Marty Cordova replied: "How can someone injure themselves in such a stupid way?"

(for the uninformed, Cordoba missed a game once because he burned his face in a tanning bed)

Baseball - isn't that just cricket for people with ADS?
 
2003-03-03 11:13:36 AM  
The local, minor teams are the true players of this game...

Ah and there it is, the underground fan. Tell me, when those minor league players finally achieve their dream of reaching the majors, what will they become then? Sellouts? Not "real" athletes anymore?

It's a miracle! Ben realized that there are other browsers in the world besides IE!

Uh. Didn't those pampered rich bi+ches come through the minor leagues?

It's very simple. If you are under 30 years old, you probably have an incredibly short attention span formulated from years of television, X-Games, video-games, etc. Baseball simply is not for you. It belongs to a different time.

Some of us actually bemoan the attempt to update baseball for a younger audience. It should be slow.

Did you see this article just below the "hat" one?

Who's this kid with the big head?
 
2003-03-03 11:19:00 AM  
The actual headline, "Brewer injured by hat," was hilarious.

Need I remind you that he injured himself with a hat? He injured himself too easily to be considered an athlete, and the method of doing so defies intellect. The only conclusion I can reach is that baseball is neither a sport, nor a game. QED.

I'm often at those Sunday Cubs games...continuing my weekend drinking. Usually I don't plan on drinking much on Sunday games going in, but by the 7th inning or so I'm generally so frustrated with the Cubs that the need for self-destruction takes over.

It's not a problem. It's a talent.
 
2003-03-03 11:20:03 AM  
who cares about teh kid.. who's teh hottie?
 
2003-03-03 11:20:35 AM  
Zeke....it's Jason Kidd's kid. I think he'd take an 8 3/4 hat, in case the Brewers PR guy is reading this.
 
2003-03-03 11:21:50 AM  
Zeke_the_Plumber: That's Jason Kidd's freakish son. Kid's like 4 and he already has a pimp-stash.
 
2003-03-03 11:21:55 AM  
Hat injury, I don't think so

Gte269 : Jason Kidd's wife.
 
2003-03-03 11:24:42 AM  
Did he hurt is neck putting on his ASSHAT?
 
2003-03-03 11:25:09 AM  
And so the pussification of our world continues . . .
Hope it at least was a big hat.
 
2003-03-03 11:26:13 AM  
Fark. Nobody let this guy near a tie.
 
2003-03-03 11:26:33 AM  
I don't think that's really his kid.

Someone with freakishly large forehead has been hitting his wife.
 
2003-03-03 11:26:48 AM  
how can we start a flame war over this?
 
2003-03-03 11:27:54 AM  
Gator...I agree. Looks like the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer has been offering Mrs. Kidd some legal advice.
 
2003-03-03 11:28:57 AM  
"how can we start a flame war over this?"

The guy who hurt himself with a hat is for sure a republican, because as we all know republicans are all stupid pig farking inbred shiat eating bastards.
 
2003-03-03 11:29:18 AM  
Man I called in sick to work, and they want me to call back TODAY to let them know I can come in tommorow. I guess it would have been more believable ifI said I coundn't work today because I hurt my head with a hat. Call back, maybr I should just go to work moaning like Fred Sanford, I'm sure the CEO would like that scene.
 
2003-03-03 11:29:19 AM  
This almost tops the time Vince Coleman was run over by the automatic tarp machine. Since it moved at 5 MPH and he stole bases for a living, it is hard to understand how it happened.
 
2003-03-03 11:31:46 AM  
Gator: dam.. i agree with.. got anything else?
 
2003-03-03 11:34:11 AM  
My uncle died after stabbing himself in the stomach while combing his hair, so I can sympathise with this guy.
 
2003-03-03 11:34:26 AM  
Will someone PLEASE post something interesting or at least mildly amusing??????? Don't make me have to actually work today!

2003-03-03 11:34:28 AM  
I knew exactly what to expect by reading this thread. A whole bunch of "Baseball Sucks", and "Cricket is better" responses. Go figure. Fark is so predicatable sometimes, it makes me giggle.
 
2003-03-03 11:35:29 AM  
and he makes how much?..that's right, to much
 
2003-03-03 11:35:49 AM  
a 7 5/8 hat? he should be a batboy !

Rugby Rules!
 
2003-03-03 11:36:32 AM  
I believe some other great injuries in baseball history include "strained eyelid" and someone inadvertently slicing themselves open with one of those CD-opening dealies.
 
2003-03-03 11:36:32 AM  
I agree with several posters: the much more important story is the hotness of Jason Kidd's wife.

Dammit, I KNEW I should have gone into the NBA.
 
2003-03-03 11:38:11 AM  
Jason Kidd hits that.
 
2003-03-03 11:38:54 AM  
I blame it on Yatta!
 
2003-03-03 11:40:25 AM  
Hope he doesn't hurt his back carrying around his huge wallet-o-cash.
 
2003-03-03 11:41:44 AM  
This is a very slow day for news indeed.

2003-03-03 11:42:25 AM  
Musta been an ass-hat.
 
2003-03-03 11:42:26 AM  
Once more proving my point...
Baseball players are PU$$IES!
Whimpy, spoiled, over-paid, ignortant, ungrateful, fan-abusing PU$$IES!!

And this is considered the great american pasttime?
Holy Farking Crap!
If this is the example we put up as to how "Tough, Athletic and Strong" we are, no wonder the world looks at us as a joke.
BAseball has brought the personality of this nation nothing but shame, humiliation and embarresment.
These useless, cud-chewing, crotch-scratching, seed-shell spitting jack-asses should be summarily fired and replaced by high-school students and womens soft-ball players as at least those people stiff give two shiats about the sport.

BASEBALL SUCKS A$$ because the players SUCK A$$!!

2003-03-03 11:44:30 AM  
If I become a base ball player, can I hit that MILF?
 
2003-03-03 11:45:17 AM  
Yeah, so I typoed Still (Stiff).. So what. Eat Me Typo Nazi's in waiting
