Thanks to River Ave. Blues, we learned about this article in the Boston Herald about a poor, poor little Boston child who was shocked and dismayed that Shelley Duncan signed his autograph "Red Sox Suck! Shelley Duncan."
Seriously? This is news in Boston??
You've got Yankees getting hit intentionally with pitches, Eric Gagne drilling Mariano Rivera with an "errant" throw in the bullpen, and a tremendous three-game series, yet this somehow makes the paper?
Look at the sad little face the kid is making for the camera. I wonder what he's auditioning for. Kid Nation II? He, and his parents, are publicity-seeking whores. It's hard to blame a 10-year-old kid for anything, especially when he has parents who have so clearly led him astray, but just look at him. Grow up, kid. It was a joke. Jesus Christ. You're letting your parents make a fool out of you by taking this to the media.
And listen to his dimwit mother:
“[Duncan] is someone who wears the Yankee uniform and is on the payroll and should be setting an example for 10-year-olds,” she said.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! Yet she has no problem with the examples set by Manny Ramirez, Curt Schilling the preaching hypocrite or Julio Lugo the wife-beater. Also...that's a run-on sentence, lady.
How could you, Shelley Duncan? How dare you use the word "suck" in front on an innocent little Bostonian? Next time, just give the kid's parents forearm shivers and break their ulnae.
