There is no crying in baseball

Is nothing sacred? Does politics have to get in the way of everything?


Major League Baseball hasn't narrowed the list of the eight bidders seeking to buy the Washington Nationals and some Republicans on Capitol Hill already are hinting at revoking the league's antitrust exemption if billionaire financier George Soros , an ardent critic of President Bush and supporter of liberal causes, buys the team.
"It's not necessarily smart business sense to have anybody who is so polarizing in the political world," Rep. John E. Sweeney (R-N.Y.) said. "That goes for anybody, but especially as it relates to Major League Baseball because it's one of the few businesses that get incredibly special treatment from Congress and the federal government."

Rep. Tom M. Davis III (R-Va.), who was a strong supporter of bringing a baseball team to Virginia, told Roll Call yesterday that "Major League Baseball understands the stakes" if Soros buys the team. "I don't think they want to get involved in a political fight.

Tom Davis is the same clown who called the hearings on steroids. Do these guys have too much time on their hands? They are worried about steroids, who owns a baseball team and flag burning. Mr. Davis, how many people died in Iraq today? What have you done to reduce the national debt?

I don't agree with allot of George Soros agenda, but he is a good businessman. If he buys the team I'm sure he will do everything he can to make it a success. This really pisses me off. Get the government off my back, out of my bedroom, my library books and my favorite game.

Instead of talking about sports they should be taking a closer look at my 3.5% raise were suppose to get next year. They ruined Iraq and Afganistan next on their radar is Baseball. We are definately in trouble.

I don't much care who can and cannot buy the Washington Nationals. I know it goes much deeper than that, but at this point we have 3 1/2 years to lick our wounds and learn from our mistakes. Hopefully, we can get a decent gameplan this time around and a candidate that can win.

Also, create as much interference as possible, to make sure the Republicans can't pass some of their ridiculous legislation currently being considered. That's basically what it boils down to.

This is just another ruse to divert public attention--think about it--the last thing the entire right wing wants to discuss is Iraq because it is a psuedonym for failure. Following Bush's address last night the Fox News Network did its obligatory follow up coverage but then went straight on to Natalie Holloway--does anyone seriously believe if this entire mess in Iraq was on Clinton's watch that Fox news' big three O'Reilly, Hannity, and Greta, would be covering missing teenagers????? BY the way, I liked the President's speech last night the first time that i saw it--when it was called "MIssion Accomplished".

You know it's a shame when the president is trying to remind americans that about 911. Coming from N.J. I don't need to be reminded, what I need to be reminded of is the constent threat to our homeland here and what they are doing to prevent it. I used to laugh when I kept hearing the famous color codes going up and down based on little or no information, but since the Newark Purdential threat we don't hear about anymore warnings, and that scares me. We need to keep our eye on the terrioist ball instead of the baseball.

Is it just a coincidence that the Terror Alert Level has not been raised since the election?

another genius move by the Bush camp. To bad the american people especially in the fly over states can't see that. But Bush is religous that's all that matters to them.
