The Bud Selig brigade of fools and losers was at it again last night. At least Gary Bettman is getting paid by David Stern and the NBA to destroy the NHL. Bud Selig and crew are attempting to kill Major League baseball simply to satisfy their monstrous egos and stuff their already fat wallets.
Last night's World Series game played in a driving rain for six innings was ridiculous. It should have never started. After Morons 'r Us let it start, it should have been stopped before it got to the official five innings. Instead, they played through a driving rain in 40 degree weather. The Clarion Content is sure that was fun for the home fans who shelled out hundreds of dollars a ticket to sit through that shit. Worse yet, the way MLB waited for the game to be tied, then immediately suspended it, gave all the feel that the fix was in. Our correspondent was sitting in a sports bar watching the game, everybody in the place knew as soon as the Rays tied it, they were going to stop the game. (Just as we knew once the fools let it go past the bottom of the 5th, they weren't going to stop it with the Phillies ahead.)
This all brought to you by the same idiots who let the All-Star game end in a tie. Then decided two wrongs can't possibly make us look more asinine and turned an exhibition game into the decider of home field advantage for the sports championship.
You don't play the sport's championship game under conditions that you never, ever play in during the regular season. If all of the players are used to games being delayed or canceled in a driving rain why play on? It was dangerous and ignorant. Oh wait, he knew better than the weatherman, all along according to the Philadelphia Daily News's Bill Conlin, "Selig said that as of 6:30 p.m. only a tenth of an inch of rain was forecast to fall between game time and midnight. About the same time that Bastardi (AccuWeather meteorologist) called for a cancellation."
Can someone, please, please, please send Bud Selig back to the used car lot???
