At the expense of sounding paternalistic – I am about ready to send every baseball observer to bed without dinner. And if you think we are still going to the trampoline park on Saturday, all I can say is you better give some thought to your behavior!
One of the most amazing, bizarre, controversial, flukish, zany, emotional and fantazmagoric games took place last night up the Skydome (I am not changing what I call it, sorry Rogers, Inc.), and a ridiculously high number of people are talking about……a bat flip. Not a game, not a game, not a game, we’re talkin’ ’bout bat flips. We’re talkin’ ’bout bat flips.
And no – I am not talking solely about the people speaking against them. I am also saying it is silly to bust a gut speaking in favor of it. Over at HBT, Craig has done his best Tony Korneiser/Stephen A. Smith/Skip Bayless imitation to lets us know the horror that was Sam Dysons post game comments. And all around the internet, you don’t have to go far to find “Bat flips are perfectly legitimate, you anti-fun, free speech killing totalitarian!!” or “Act like you have been there before, you cocky, over the top mean spirited jerk!!”
Everyone – calm down! News flash – you may like bat flips, but others don’t. It’s a matter of personal taste. And I 100% flip that around to the other side – some people express there joy differently then you.
Now I will grant that in given situations, there are legitimate complaints. If a pitcher plunks the batter later, or if someone is truly trying to be a jerk with the flip, then those are topics for debate. But short of that – people are going to disagree with your opinion about bat flips. It’s not a big deal.
Now lets all have a group hug. And I am still going to take you to the trampoline park Saturday
