Ouch! Milwaukee Brewers Should Have Worn A Cup, Takes Ball To No-No Zone
I love baseball, specifically the Chicago Cubs. (Yes, I know they are worse than terrible at the moment.) Despite my love for the Cubbies, I don't hate the Milwaukee Brewers. I mean, I want them to lose every game but I definitely do not hate the organization.
One thing is certain, I don't wish ill will toward players because they're entertaining us. They're just people doing their job, and, oh, I have no right to because I can't play on any sort of professional level.
Baseball can be a wild sport.
Some might argue that baseball is boring. It can be on occasion but there are times when there are some wild plays. Players may dive head first, backward, or high in the air to make a play. There is no knocking those athletes because it is one of the most difficult sports in the world. They're hitting tiny balls, thrown at 100 miles an hour, with a stick.
Yes, Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain had an ill-timed cup check. I watched the reply 15 times and called my urologist because I felt his pain. Seriously, you watch it and tell me you didn't cringe.
(Warning: painful moment ahead.)
Do you think Cain will pack a cup moving forward? How long do you think he'll have a bruise? Also, the crowd's reaction amplifies the "oh, $%^&" reaction. Talk about, "play ball."
