Sometimes I can be mean and nasty( in case youâ€™re new to this blog) and not just when it comes to Jeffey Skill Sets. Â Iâ€™m enjoying the pain that Highlander fans are going through with their $275 mil dollar albatross of a third baseman, just knowing they have 9 more years of Alex Rodriguez and the fact that Captain Craptastic hates his guts and could be that could be the reason he bolts the Bronx when his contract is up is the bitch to the payback. But I think I have to stop picking on poor defenseless Highlander fans.
Yesterday before my sonâ€™s basketball game, I sat in the stands with a couple of other fathers who are fans of the Bronx Bastards. Some are the typical fans that think itâ€™s their god given right to have a parade down Broadway every year, and one or two are somewhat reasonable to the point where they can complement the Mets for fixing the biggest need the back of the pen. So any way, my first question to the group was â€œWOW, what do you think of A-Rodâ€ Â as soon as I got the Rod part out, I sat back and watched the fireworks display. Mr. â€œthe only baseball is Highlander baseballâ€ was enraged not that a confidential test was leaked to a reporter or that Rodriguez has told three different stories or even what the effects will be on Rodriguez health ,no his main concern was â€œthis was done to sabotage the Highlander seasonâ€Â he went on to rant about how all the teams in baseball were â€œout to get â€œ the Highlanders and the Red Sox and Mets were two of the teams that are the most jealous of their success and just stupid comment after stupid comment.
It was at that point it dawned on me that has there ever been a more perfect marriage than Highlander fans and Alex Rodriguez? They are two of the same. They are both â€œme firstâ€ types, they never give credit to the opposition, and they believe they should always get what they want. Is there more of a douche than a Highlander fan who says â€œAnything short of a World Series Championship is unacceptableâ€?
See I kind of like hanging around Highlander fans as it makes me appreciate being a Mets fan. Our team and organization is far from perfect but it sure beats the shit out the alternative. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
