As many of you know one of the GREATEST baseball players of all time and possiblly the GREATEST Oakland Athletic to ever play the game was inducted in the Hall of Fame this year. You might have heard of him, he goes by the name RICKEY HENDERSON. He’s so proud of his name he would even call himself Rickey!
I don’t need to get into all the details because we all know he was great. The purpose of this blog is really just a vindication and to show how stupid some people are.
Now I’m not some wild crazy feminist, quite the contrary, I pretty much loathe women like that.
So here’s what happened. I was talking to a friend on the phone and he proceeded to rip into Rickey and say he is only in the HOF because of stealing bases yada yada yada and he wasn’t even an Oakland A for long. I was like “WHAT?” He was signed by the A’s and played in the organization for years before going to the Yanks then coming back to the A’s then later in his career he spent a minute with the Mets, Angels, Dodgers and maybe 5 minutes with the Padres.
Then get this!?!? You will just die!!!!
He says, “ASK ANYONE WHAT TEAM RICKEY HENDERSON WAS ON EVERYONE WILL THINK OF HIM AS A MET HE WAS THERE LIKE 18 YEARS! SEE THIS IS WHY YOU CAN’T TALK SPORTS WITH GIRLS THEY DON’T KNOW ANYTHING!!!!”
But you know when someone sounds so confident about what they are saying and you know you are right but you still look it up anyway. He said google it! I was like dude I’m on baseball reference and he was only with the Mets like a year. Then he said GOOGLE IT. Dude!!!! I’m on baseball-reference…seriously?
So yah, THAT’S WHY YOU DON’T TALK SPORTS WITH BOYS…THEY DON’T KNOW NOTHIN’!!!!
Don’t try to tell me about my A’s and one of my favorite players ever to play the game….you will get owned!
So guys next time you want to argue with a chick about sports, make sure you get your facts straight. You know you don’t wanna lose to a girl! (but they usually do.)
