Sportress of Blogitude

According To The BBC, Manny Ramirez Got Himself Into A Sticky Wicket


Since everyone on the internets has already read about Manny Ramirez and his suspension already, I wasn’t going to do a post about it unless I could find some unique, Sportress of Blogitude-esque angle to the story.

Well, in stepped the Brits and the BBC.

As you can see in the above screengrab, the BBC is reporting that Manny Ramirez has been given a 50 match suspension.

Say what?

Listen here, you limey fucks, a contest between two baseball teams is called a game – not a match. And for any further reporting you intend on doing regarding America’s pastime, we play baseball on a field, not a pitch. There are also no bowlers or wicketkeepers, either.

And if you don’t wisen up on how we do things in the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, you’re going to end up in a world of hurt. We kicked your ass in World War II and we’ll do it again!


God dammit, now I’m going to have to put in some Lee Greenwood and let my patriotism shine. And by letting it shine, I mean I’m going to punch an immigrant.
