Pro Bowlers were announced today. As usual, I have some concerns.
I know how this shit keeps happening. Its the same reason that the AL All Star team always includes the whole Yankees and Red Sox starting lineups - the leagues are stupid and they allow the fans to vote. And I can't even complain too much about the NFL. At least in the NFL the fans' vote only counts for 1/3 of the total ballot. In baseball, they're stupid enough to give the fans total control over a decision that affects home field advantage in their championship.
Side Note: Is there any better way to tell the world that you're an enormous pervert than by putting '69' in your email address or screen name? Whenever I encounter such a person, I make a mental note to make sure he or she is never left alone with children. I mean, what better way to establish yourself as a creep than by putting a sexual reference in something as superfluous as a username? My advice, just don't use those digits under any circumstances. I don't care if you were born in 1969. I don't care if the digits are preceded by 'fanofthemoonlanding'. Its just not a good idea. You don't need the bad vibes that come from being lumped in with teenagers and sexual deviants.
