    I guess this ties in with other threads on over PC-ization and all that. I wonder who made Jay Bruce apologize? Is it really THAT bad?

    You can't see it, but I'm making an obscene gesture in your general direction. And I won't apologize for it!

    Yeah, yeah, I get that - because the cameras are everywhere.
    But is it really THAT bad?

    No, it's not.

    Fuck political correctness.

    He's just saying what inning it is.

    Either that, or he's trying to show how many runs the Reds have, and we all have double vision.

    It's not about political correctness. It's unprofessional and rude to the fans. Not being a priss about it, but it's just classless and stupid.

    How is that rude to the fans? He's got his hands virtually pinned to his shirt. Unprofessional? Eh, if we're going that route with spitting, crotch-grabbing ballplayers, we're gonna be here a while.

    Disclosure: I'm an unabashed Reds fanboi. I mean, not so much that I have the team logo as my avatar (what kind of toolbag would do that?), but I am a huge fan.

    Can't tell from the picture, is he flipping off the fans or fucking around with his teammates?

    What's the stink? Bruce admitted it was a stupid thing to do, and it was.
