Just Manny being ban-ny

/

So Manny is the latest to get busted for sticking performance-enhancing needles in his fanny. Big freaking surprise.
Then I read that he was busted for taking human chorionic gonadotropin.
Manny being tranny?
Manny being nanny? granny?
I know, it's supposed to be taken by dopers who are cycling off---just couldn't pass up the chance to dish out some pun-ishment.

Seriously though, if you're surprised, you're incredibly naive or stupid. Yeah, sure it was a mistake or an honest prescription that he forgot to run by the team doctors.

The past 25 years or so have seen the greed-fueled supply-side mentality create a culture of billion dollar entitlements and billion dollar lies. We have seen this in American government and American industry. And in American sports. And in the sporting realm, no sport has quite encapsulated this excess, embraced this culture of abusing the public trust and exploiting the public ignorance and apathy---all for incredible monetary gain---quite as well as Major League Baseball.

Reminds me of Terrance Mann telling Ray Kinsella in 'Field of dreams'---"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball......baseball has marked the time."

Well, it sure has, hasn't it?

Of course, Mann went on to say, "This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again."

Now, about that last part........maybe not so much.

Fuck. I really liked Ramirez.

So did I.
The best hitting eye that I have ever seen. Fucker took more close pitches (that were clearly not strikes on replay) than anyone---I haven't seen anybody even remotely close to him on that.
Then again, I haven't watched baseball in a long time cos I dont give a crap about it anymore.

given that just about all of 'em are juiced, why would you change your opinion as to whether you like or don't like a player just because it has been proven CPP? hmm?

Stache, you truly are the Grand High Exalted Mystic Pun-dit! "Manny being granny", Manny being tranny", I laughed out loud.

And yeah, asshole that he is, Manny might be the best money hitter I've ever seen. And that was no play on words. The fucker hits under pressure, hits in the post season (which Bonds or A-Rod have never done), and he's one of the few if any who can (to use the cliche') really actually carry a team on his back. (See Dodgers!) But asshole is as asshole does and this asshole is just another doper. Sit on your fanny, Manny, for fifty games!
Glad I don't give a fuck about baseball anymore... when does football camp open again?

A-hem... how did you miss, "Manny being Nanny", Stache? I'm just askin'!

Anonymoustache said...

Scrib50,
I dont blame the players as much as I blame the owners and the commish. They created an environment in which this was implicitly encouraged. Combine that with multi-million dollar contracts at stake and you have massive PED abuse. Unavoidable. I dont exonerate the players for doing it, but the much larger share of the blame lies with the MLB powers that be.
Also dude, I didn't miss that nanny pun---it's in there. It's the low hanging fruit of language and I pick that fruit with im-pun-ity.
C'mon man, I wouldn't pun-t on it and pass up an easy opportunity to add more pun-ch to the post. So I'd like that alleged miss ex-pun-ged from my record please.
Ahthangyu.

BTW, loved the title Pun-dit, for obvious reasons---thanks! Imma gonna keep it and wear it with pride.

Good heavens... copious apologies, Sir, I somehow went straight to granny and missed that "nanny" thing. But fear not, Sir Stache,I've already mentally pun-ished myself for not being more pun-ctilious or mentally pun-ctual. And if we ever meet in person you have absolute permission to pun-ch me in the nose!

PS: Hope you didn't mind that home s-pun humor!

Anonymoustache said...

Tsk tsk tsk.
Look what I've done---taken a mighty fine writer like yourself and dragged you down to my pun-y levels. You're just as bad as I am, my friend. My apologies for the contagion that I spread.

On second thought, screw it. Keep bringing the awesome puns!
