Wait, what? Seriously, wait … WHAT? Who in their right mind says something that stupid?
Ok, I’ll admit my boyfriend might, ok no, he actually has said those words many, many, many times but those words!! Those ridiculous, awful words came out of the mouth of a professional baseball player. He doesn’t deserve to make money playing such an amazing game!
Granted he is a 24-year old kid but I was a four-year old kid when I went to my first game at the Coliseum in 1985 and I found it anything BUT “long and boring.”
I mean the saying does go like this, “Baseball is a smart person’s sport” – I mean you have to appreciate the nuances. For me each pitch is exciting. Anything can happen at any moment! I think baseball is beyond exciting even on it’s more “boring” days.
When I think of what I have witnessed in the last 29 years I’ve been watching baseball I’ve been extremely luck and am extremely grateful! I’ve seen (not live tho!) my team win a World Series against the team I despise most – that was when I was eight. I was inside getting ready to watch the game during the earthquake while most of my friends were out playing. Since then I have been in attendance as my team not only won 20 games in a row but walked off to win the last three. I witnessed MLB’s 19th Perfect Game! I was at game 162 in 2012 when my team won the division on the last day of the season after a huge comeback down the stretch! I’ve seen some pretty amazing things and baseball is the farthest thing from boring!! I hate missing games, it scares me – I don’t want to miss witnessing history and there is chance to witness history at every single game … almost every day for half the year! It just doesn’t get any better than that. I have one major thing to check off my list of historic baseball moments but I won’t talk about that now!
Now, this kid. This stupid kid, who plays baseball – FOR A LIVING willingly tells the national media, the Washington Post to be exact that he doesn’t watch baseball. He separates his “work life” and his “home life.” However he put it – it is a slap in the face to the fans that almost got him voted into the All-Star Game in the final vote. It’s a slap in the face to fans everywhere.
Most ballplayers LOVE to play the game and that’s a big part of the reason why they do. Well this post is as mean as the other drafts I tried to write but it is still a “F*** YOU! YOU ARE STUPID!!” message to the Washington Nationals’ infielder. Anthony Rendon is the definition of stupidity. He’s three years older than Manny Machado and this pretty much puts them on the same level in my book. WHAT AN IDIOT.
The fans should shun him … he may be a good player and a future star but really? How far will he get if he doesn’t have the LOVE of the game we can see genuinely shine from other players. Most players if they don’t love the game – they at least like it and are smart enough to NOT say it out loud.
Also, he is not THAT good. If you are going to make a statement like that …. at least be hitting .300 kid and have like 20 homers at the half way point … otherwise keep your stupid mouth shut! UGH! I’m seriously annoyed by this … but since I have pontificated for approximately 600 words I think I have wasted enough of my time on this issue! BASEBALL IS FAR FROM BORING! I’ll just leave it at that.
