Bodies in Motion

Las Vegas baseball phenom, Bryce Harper is droppin’ outta high school to pursue his dream of bein’ an MLB star. The brotherhubbard is only sixteen years old and his parents are supporting his decision. Question: If parents are allowed to let their teenage son quit school and sell his “services” to big league baseball, WTF can’t their teenage daughter drop out and sell her “services” to the Moonlite Bunny Ranch? Funny, if you can swing a bat as good as the pros, they call you the "chosen one"…if you give a hummer as good as the pros, they call you a whore. Two words…Double. Standard.

In the last week Ted Rall, Bill Maher and Rachel Maddow have shown their extreme displeasure with the ‘Bamer. They accuse the President of reneging on campaign promises like releasing torture info, stopping “don’t ask/don’t tell” and universal healthcare. Maher and Rall went so far as to demand that Barry-O resign. It’s still early, but BOb is starting to look a lot like the Bush-Wipe. Question: If the President is losing support from hardcore lefties, how long ‘til the rest of the dems bail? Change you can believe in? No. Change you can Xerox. Yup.

To hell with this kid.... a double standard is Donte Stallworth killing a guy while driving drunk and getting the horribly unfair sentence of 30 days in jail and a little slap on the wrist of home confinement & probation!

The Commish should make an example of him and toss him out of the league for good, or at the very least, the length of his entire sentence (to include the entire home confinement and prescribed probation period), then add another year for good measure; if not the the dog killers penalty (yet to be determined) will be a joke after all his jail time.

Dude hasn't played an inning and he's gonna be a BAZILLIONAIRE! Big-time athletes will ALWAYS get preferential treatment. "Bowling for Soup" said it best...High school never ends!

I'm not sure if I want to wish him well or wish that he falls into a well???

This top draft pick money is crazy for an unproven commodity; unions suck.

It further separates the fan from the game; snot nosed kid gets 25 or 30 million a year, then Manny or A-Roid or Pujols wants 40 Million, then all the Mendoza-line guys want 15 million, just guess who has to pay for the ticket, parking and consession price increases?

Maybe thats why soccer is becoming so popular; dad figures if his kids don't realize there are American sports, then he won't have to spend a week or two's pay to take a family of 4 to a pro game.

In football, the rookies make so much money, the veterans are getting cut. I'll just watch the game on television.
