Manny Mania - Not

Isotopes Park was filled with sopping dred-heads last night. We were all there to see Manny Ramirez play. He was slated as the first hitter of the game. So what if he had taken feminine hormones? So what if he had a 50 game suspension? So what if he was only there for a few days, and ONLY because he was suspended and couldn't play for the Dodgers? So what if we were sitting in the rain? So what if our dreds were dripping?

It was Manny Ramirez, probably the best hitter in baseball history. And he was playing with the Isotopes! We didn't care! Maybe we should have, but we didn't. We were there to see an amazing baseball player.

But someone else cared. The Dodgers cared. It was raining and Manny had to go inside. He couldn't play anymore. Too much risk of injury.

Huh. Wasn't rain part of the fun? Now what were we all gonna do with our newly-purchased dreds? And all those disappointed Little Leaguers. Sad. There's really no excuse.

What can you do? Just play ball!
