Um, Dude. It Was A Joke

Last night, Miguel Batista uncorked probably the line of the season when he was asked about being booed upon taking the mound instead of Stephen Strasburg.

"Imagine if you go see Mrs Universe, then you end up having Mrs Iowa. Then you might get those kind of boos."

Athletes rarely say stuff as witty as that, and it was perfectly fitting, since Batista is unheralded just like the state of Iowa. (And I'm being nice). Unfortunately, Earl Bloom of the Orange County Register, otherwise known as "The Human Party Pooper," felt the need to point out the TERRIBLE logical fallacy in Batista's innocent postgame remark.

Apparently, Batista has never seen Miss Iowa, Katherine Anna Connors, whom I seriously doubt has ever been booed.

Well gee, thanks for clearing that up Earl. You've really performed a great service to us all.
