Stupid Ideas Newsbeat

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Gregg Zaun: “If I had a dollar for every time Cal worked me over, physically, I’d be a pretty wealthy guy.”

With Ornette, Charlie Haden, & Billy Higgins…

...all of a sudden I had what was called “the posse” all over me. Cal Ripken, Ben McDonald, Brady Anderson, Chris Hoiles, all of the above. They beat me on my ribcage, physically abused me on my way to the training table. They taped me spread-eagle to the training table, they wrote “rookie” on my forehead with pink methylate, and they shoved a bucket of ice down my shorts. I missed the entire batting practice, and you know what? Phil Regan, the manager of the Baltimore Orioles, he did not care, because he knew that what those guys were doing was ‘educating me.’

ESPN Suspends Keith Law From Twitter For Defending Evolution

Pardon the interruption?
