Sports fans, it's that time of week again. What team, player, coach, manager, team executive, owner, or fans of teams have you in a tizzy? What CAN you do about it? Here, you can throw them under the Bus and call them out for the cause of your ire. I have some nominees that I would like to throw under said Bus!
Washington Redskins: some genius in this organization misspelled RB Ladell Betts' name on his jersey. They spelled it "Bettis" on his #46 jersey. Now if he only could run like the Bus in his prime, the Redskins may have something. Oh well, it's better than spelling it "Butts" or something like that! The genius needs to go back to school and learn how to spell. But first, he has to get thrown under the Bus for being a dolt.
Garrett Hartley: it's rare that I mention a kicker for anything, unless he commits such a gaffe that it's worthy of being thrown under the Bus. Hartley violated the NFL's substance abuse policy by testing positive for a banned stimulant. For that, Sheriff Goodell suspended him for the first four games of the season. But not before Hartley gets thrown under the Bus first.
David Ragan: he WAS the caution when it wasn't thrown for rain. He took out a very solid car in the Blue Deuce, and he spun close to the flag stand. Perhaps his car should have been painted yellow to signify "I'm a traveling caution flag!" While I like Ragan, he's gotta go under da Bus tonight!
Boston Red Sox: for beaning Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers in yesterday's game. Kinsler had been wearing out Sox pitching since his activation from the disabled list before Friday's game. He was first pitched under his chin, then he was beaned. If you're going to drill someone, DRILL HIM IN THE RIBS. What the Sox pitcher did SHOULD merit a lengthy suspension. The Sox get thrown under the Bus for trying to start a beanball war.
Those are my nominees for the week. Feel free to come in with yours!
