I don’t do “must-click” links because I respect the word “no”. Instead I urge you, albeit strongly, to click this link from the Chicago Tribune to see what very cool thing Todd Frazier is doing to build team camaraderie, specifically with respect to Jose Abreu. In response to Frazier’s efforts, Abreu said, “I like his personality, and it’s good for us as a team. Especially for us, as Latins, it’s good to see one of the guys trying to hang around with us.”
Not to get too preachy, nor too political, but Frazier’s example is a great example for everyone to take with them in all walks of life. Call it curiosity, empathy or basic human intelligence, whatever it is, when people spend the time learning about others that are different from them, even in seemingly benign ways, only good comes of it. I have a feeling if more people did this kind of thing in their regular life, we would have a much less divisive and incendiary national dialogue than we do right now. We may have entirely different candidates running for President. Ignorance is not bliss, it’s dangerous. The word ignorance implies a lack of information. Take it from Todd and get some!

Your sentiment is admirable, Bravo, and I subscribe to it.
But the reason we have the politics we have today is because the large majority of people have absolutely no interest in reaching out to others of different ethnicity or beliefs. And they can’t imagine why they should.
I wish it were otherwise.

We done said the same thing. Frazier is a pioneer, I guess.
“Some of them, I assume, are good people.”
Exactly how I describe NL fans.
I dunno, I think sometimes ignorance is bliss. For example I’m completely ignorant on how Old Gator’s ass looks like, but I’d prefer to remain ignorant on that matter.

How about this
It looks like the weird furry suit guy that’s blowing another guest in The Shining.
Next time I do a Must Click link it is going to say: “Must click this link, asshole, if you know what’s good for you or else.” No is not an option. I think I was going to easy on everyone before. 😉
I was a fan of Todd Frazier before it was cool to be a fan of Todd Frazier. /hipster’d
