Why yes. Yes, they do. The owners, anyway.
Warning: This post is somewhat sports-related. However, it does involve mocking a rich prick. So there’s something for everyone.
As you may or may not know, last night, the New York Yankees were eliminated from a possible appearance in this year’s MLB playoffs. This has not happened in fourteen years.
I am not here to dance on the grave of the NY Yankees’ season, nor to mock their fans. Oh no! I’m here to talk about what incredible wads of fuck the owners are.
You see, George Steinbrenner, the douchebag owner, ordered his son Hank to bitch, in the press, about how the baseball playoff system sucks. And to slam Joe Torre, who the prick-ass team of Steinbrenner and Son fired after last season. All Joe Torre did, you see, was take the Yankees to the playoffs for twelve straight years when he managed that team. This year, he’s with the Dodgers in LA. And guess what? His team will almost certainly be going to the playoffs this year. That, in itself, is a beautiful cosmic fuck-you to the Steinbrenners. But, being the stupid pricks they are, they can’t see that. So they go whine in a newspaper column, and make themselves look like even bigger fuckheads.
And you didn’t think that was possible.
