Pitchers and Catchers: Humbug!
Am I the only one who is sick of hearing the lame phrase "pitchers and catchers" thrown around this time of year as some sort of identifier: hey, we know baseball? We, the morons who haven't had an original thought in decades. We know the "pitchers and catchers" tend to report before other players and that it signifies the long awaited start of baseball spring training. Hey! Grow the heck up! Who the heck cares? This reminds me of some jerk on a Fox TV series who is showing what a baseball genius he is by explaining to some bimbo that the box score is the perfect form, telling one everything there is to know about a particular baseball game. Yeah, if you're a moron! I bet this guy uses the phrase "pitchers and catchers" enough to make his victims vomit. I'll bet he even says "old School" and "back in the day". Plus, once the long awaited first game of spring training finally starts how long is it before you are bored out of your mind? Is there an NBA game to watch? When?
