View Full Version : Oh, dear me! Frank lacks "perspective!"

Well, Ricky the whiner and Jay the Screamer have weighed in on
Frank. I read Telander and the opening paragraph of Mariotti.
There is a common theme in both. They both are hammering
Thomas for his lack of "perspective." Ricky mentions the night-
club disasters, Jay just says that we live in a world where there
are worse problems than his.

Boy, oh boy. That is effin' rich. These two SOBs yapping about
a lack of "perspective." Ricky is the one who constantly moans
about his Cubbies lack of success as if it is a horrible curse from
the Fates. He also once refered to an athlete as a "warrior."
Ha. To me, a warrior is someone who puts his/her life on the
line to fight for people who cannot fight for themselves. Fire
fighters, police officers and soldiers come to my mind, not dumb
clods who play games of bat and ball for which they are well
compensated. But then again, Ricky is an ex-jock who could
only dream of being paid to play ball. Wetting his pants at the
thought of them being "warriors" is understandable.

As for Jay, I have no idea where to begin. I site a few examples:
calling Mike Ditka a monster, lunatic and psycho; saying that the
world was "laughing at us" because of the Tonya/Nancy affair;
calling Albert Belle a "threat to humanity;" saying that Michael
Jordan's comeback after 9/11 was his "gift to humanity;" yelling
and and hollering about Dennis Rodman, Bob Knight, the punks
who jumped Gamboa, etc. etc. etc.

I could go on and on, but there are better things to worry about
in the world. Suffice to say that these two ignoramuses have
guts of steel to put garbage like that out. To paraphrase Vincent
Bugliosi, where can I get guts like that? Are they for sale?

This is the article Jay Marriotti wrote this morning. I knew he would jump all over this...it was too tempting. (http://http://www.suntimes.com/output/mariotti/cst-spt-jay24.html)

After reading this piece, I can only say he was wanting to dump all over Frank, and Frank was foolish enough to give Jay an excuse. When Sammy came to camp ON TIME like he should've been doing all along, it was almost like a re-creation of Jesus riding a donkey into Jerusalem. All the press were waving palms, and microphones, and yelling "Hosanna, the King of Wrigleyville have come!!!" Puh-leese. They made Sammy's arrival a story. However, how much would they jump all over him if he had anything negative to say about management and fellow teammates? Not as much as they're dumping on Frank.

To tell you the truth, there are more important things to worry about than whether Rick Telander or Jay Marriotti write favorably about the Sox. They'll write what they'll write to get reaction...whether or not people like ot or not. As long as we're talking about what they said, then they've accomplished their mission. So...the best thing to do in this case is to simply forget about what they've said, and don't worry about them.
