Dumb, Stupid NY fans...THEY STUPID!!!
Let's return to April 14, 2005. After a loss at Fenway Park at the hands of the World Champion Boston Red Sox (check!), New York Yankees manager Joe Torre spoke out, after an incident between a fan and right fielder Gary Sheffield. Torre was outwardly angry about the actions of overzealous fans."These people shouldn't be allowed to walk the street, let alone come to the ballgame," Torre said.
In this graphic, you can see Chris House doing something "inine" (new word, because it's redundant to some something asinine to an ass) as Sheffield made an attempt to grab the shot of off Red Sox Catcher, Captain, and part-time opthamologist
Ok, let's skip ahead to last night's game in the Bronx.
Chicago White Sox outfielder Scott Podsednik made an attempt on a foul ball off the bat of the erstwhile Tony Womack. The ball was a catchable one. Hence, Podsednik attempted the catch.
And he caught it. Right in the face. With a fist. From a fan who did not need to be making a play with a closed hand.
And perusing the NY dailies, I have yet to see the public outcry about this blatant attack. Nothing from St. Joe, nothing from Howard Rubenstein (P.R. flak for George M. Steinbrenner III), and nothing from the NYPD or the NY Yankee ticket office, who should be pursue criminal charges and revokation and banning this fan for life, respectively.
Just thought I'd point that out. That is all.
