The Filibuster

If Pujols went to the Cubs would there be protesters in St. Louis as there have been in Cairo?

cairo rioting.jpgWhile I am quite certain the baseball gods would never conjure up such a foul situation as Albert Pujols dressed in sCrUBBIE blue pinstripes, I cannot say as much for the public.  Deep down, I think we humans tend to envision the worst, to see where our minds might take us after glimpsing death and destruction, because we’re a curious (and mischievous species) hellbent on imagining every scenario possible, even the ones that are completely ludicrous.

But that hasn’t stopped me from having nightmares about it.

Because, as Roger Clemens taught us many moons ago, anything is possible when you’re nasty enough.

Now I don’t think Albert is being nasty in this case.  No, not at all.  But as long as he doesn’t have a new contract, we’re all going to be speculating what uniform he might be wearing next year.  The MLBlogosphere is full of talk, the tweets are all a buzzin’… and Phil Rogers of the Tribune has his finger stuck on the “vomit inducing dribble” button on his keyboard.

Oh well.  Not everyone can form a clear, independent thought.

No matter what uni my man-crush Albert will be donning in 2012, I am preparing for the worst. 

I’m preparing for the worst by taking a trip.

A trip to…

Sh!t City.

Take it away, Lauras…

And yes, Jane, you can bet the rioting will be much like we’ve seen in Cairo… only, fatter.  And more beer.

Hate me ‘cuz you can, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

Thank you for addressing my filibuster question. But now I can’t stop singing “**** City” and will probably have it stuck in my head all day. Which makes me ask a second filibuster question: What do I do to get a song I hate out of my head? Thanks.

Loved the post! Who wouldn’t want Pujols on their team!?!! I still think he will stay in St. Louis, but if he doesn’t I know that Albert will handle it with class.

Jane — I know, right!? Tough to do… that one has been stuck in my head for a week now. Welcome to the club ;-)
Ron — The only way I see Albert staying classy is by staying in the ‘Lou.
Prince — I know. I keep telling myself that.

In all unrecorded and recorded human history, there’s nothing we do better than bring violence upon each other. Pujols would be as good a reason as any to trigger more death, murder and destruction. Burn it down!
