Hot Heads Sink Ships

rush_limbaugh.jpgAh, summer! A time of year that seems to bring out the worst in everyone. According to statistics the RSBS interns just delivered, the number of drunken brawls increases by 46.7% during the summer while the number of rational decisions made dips precipitously to less than one out of every three decisions. But don’t just rely on our statistics. Take a look at the anecdotal evidence, too.

Carlos Zambrano’s ejection the other night, which was quickly followed by a 6-game suspension, highlights the upward trending number of ejections in Major League Baseball over the past few weeks. And if you think Zambrano’s tirade was ugly, just wait until Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity really get going on Sonia Sotomayor. The higher the temperature goes up, the hotter people’s heads get and the more likely they are to explode.

Maybe that’s why we should learn a lesson from the always even keel Brits. For instance, take a look at Eugene here. Do you think he’s going to shove Simon if he doesn’t make it to the next round? Will he verbally abuse the other two judges? Despite Eugene’s special set of issues, I’m thinking no.

Either way, happy Friday!

I’m sure Eugene is a very nice guy, but seriously. Show me a video of Zambrano going off! That’s entertainment!

Well… I agree with Julia that the poem wasn’t half bad… but I also agree with Jane, show me Zambrano beating the crap out of a Gatorade machine!

Oh Eugene. Simon’s expression when he came out was great. Hahaha! That poem really wasn’t that bad, but I too would much rather see Zambrano beating the crap out of the Gatorade machine. Actually that whole tirade was amusing, especially the part where he “ejected” the umpire. He still has issues, but at least I was amused.
