I offer my sincere apology to Janice Hough. I misread the attribution in Chad's post and blamed her for the comment re: umpires handing out letters of introduction at third to avoid the ever manly and traditional home plate collision. That gem sprang from the genius that is T C Chong. I'll try harder to decipher Chad's color-coding in the future

Chong and all the macho types commenting how the proposed rules change will include a clause changing MLB uniform pants to skirts or just poking a little 'harmless humor' at violent home plate collisions will no doubt have a field day yukking up the first confirmed case of degenerative brain disease in a former player’s suicide.

A study released last week found that former MLB player Ryan Freel had the degenerative brain disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), when he committed suicide a year ago. Caused by repetitive brain trauma, CTE has raised questions about the safety of the athletes.

Freel, who missed 30 games during the 2007 season because of a concussion he got colliding with a teammate, estimated that he had sustained up to 10 concussions during his playing days.

Waiting patiently to be shown the humor in this.
