Is Bud Selig a Racist or does he Just Hate Baseball?

So Barry Bonds hit his big dinger last night, and we hate him for it. But we're allowed to, we live in LA.

The Commissioner of Baseball, however, is not allowed to hate Barry Bonds. At least not publicly.

Why? Because the Commish is supposed to be fair and without allegiance. All he is supposed to care about is Baseball's Best Interest.

But clearly Bud Selig only has one interest: money. The former used car salesman couldn't give a rat's ass about baseball's best interest or he would have never accepted his wrongfully-acquired position in the wake of the collusion scandal that he was caught being involved in when he owned the Milwaukee Brewers.

It's his lust for money that's the root of all of his evil, and that greed and sin are eating away at the ugly failure and fraud. He looked visibly pained when Bonds tied Hank Aaron's career home run record in San Diego recently, and he did not applaud as he witnessed the event that he was there to see.

And, I say, (earmuffs, kids) but fuck you, old man, clap when you go to see history and it happens.

Bud Selig clapped, as he sat in attendance, and traveled around when Mark McGwire used performing enhancing drugs to break Roger Maris' single-season home run record in 1998. He went to several games leading up to 62 and he even gave a big speech infront of everyone when the freakish red head broke the 37-year-old record.

So why wasn't he in Frisco last night when Bonds broke the most important record in baseball - if not sport? What could have been more important tonight in baseball than that?

Hate, maybe?
