Mildly amusing... from thebrushback.com (http://www.thebrushback.com/previous_issue.htm) (a SATIRICAL website)

Umpires Invited To White Sox Victory Parade
CHICAGO--Several umpires were invited to the Chicago White Sox victory parade on Friday, where they were honored by fans for their contributions to the White Sox World Series victory. Jeff Nelson and Doug Eddings were among those in attendance.
“The Chicago White Sox owe a deep debit of gratitude to all of our postseason umpiring crews,” owner Jerry Reisdorf told the 1.7 million fans in attendance. “Doug Eddings, who can forget you’re call in Game 2 when you awarded AJ Pierzynski first base on strike three? And how about Jeff Nelson awarding first base to Jermaine Dye after a pitch struck his bat handle? Holy ****, are you blind? That was awesome. Anyway, I hereby award you the key to the city. Don’t lose it.”

these people keep forgetting about the Jason Lane HR blown call by the umps. Oh wait, that one wasn't a problem because it was against the Sox.

I try to visit it every once in a while (beats the Onion), some of their headlines are hilarious, but sometimes they lose me midway through the article

Here's a quick look at this week's front page:

It's hit and miss. For instance, this week's Lance Armstrong article is pretty tasteless.
