Annoying Fan Behavior #21: Telling A Player He Sucks

Nelson Cruz took a lot of flak for not making the catch on David Freese’s game-tying triple to right field in Game Six of the World Series. Cruz went back on the ball, seemed to slow down as he neared the wall, and mistimed his jump, allowing the ball to land over his head.

A couple hours later that news was absolutely trounced by the news that the first lady of sports, Kim Kardashian herself, planned on filing for divorce from her husband of two months, Kris Humphries.

I’m sure there are tons of sportswriters and radio hosts who are up-in-arms that one of the best managers in the history of baseball is being overshadowed by a woman who’s made millions of dollars for doing nothing, but this isn’t going to be one of those rants. Continue reading
