Jerry Crasnick wrote a piece on ESPN discussing who might replace Bud Selig once he steps down as baseball commissioner when his contract expires. Unfortunately, his contract lasts until 2009. More unfortunately, names that have surfaced as potential replacements are Dubya and Mitchell. Most unfortunately, no one on his list of potential replacements are named Ripken, Gwynn, Trammell, Gammons, Costas, or gerbil.
Okay, let’s just assume the attackgerbil for commish write-in campaign falls short, which is somewhat likely due to the fact I gave up on the idea the moment I realized I’d have to fork over 20 bucks at Kinkos to make copies of the petition that I was too lazy to write to begin with. Instead, YOU get hired as the head honcho of the Greatest Game Ever Invented In The History Of The World. After you do your happy dance, what’s the first change you would make to the game?.
If you don’t want to talk about that, consider this a free-form thread to discuss all things pigskin as Rex and Da Bears try to defrock America’s Sweetheart Saints at 3:00 Eastern, to be followed at 6:30 by the game that in my mind is THE GAME of the season: Patriots and Colts under the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.
