    We are laughing at this news article by City News Service about the opening of a new sports park.

    Don't know what's funnier: Using the players' full names or giving Jeremy Giambi billing over Jason.

    There have been a lot of Tommy Aaron and his brother Hank and Keith Gretzky and his brother Wayne jokes today.

    Slate of Ex-Pro Baseball Players to Join County Supers for Park Grand Opening

    PERRIS (CNS) - Four former professional baseball players and an active one are slated to turn out Saturday for the grand opening of an outdoor venue in Perris Valley that has major league features.
    The $25 million Big League Dreams Sports Park at 2155 Trumble Road, near Mapes Road, was completed late last year after 17 months of construction and years of planning.
    Former Anaheim Angels Wallace Keith "Wally" Joyner and Troy Eugene Percival are expected at the official opening Saturday, along with former Dodger Darrell Thomas, former Red Sox player Jeremy Giambi and his brother, Jason, who currently plays first base for the Colorado Rockies.

    George Gershwin and his lovely wife Ira think newspapers do silly things sometimes with the names of celebrities and siblings.

    And what's with using Joyner and Percival's full names? Bet they haven't been referred to that way since their moms were calling them inside at dark ...

    Exactly what I thought. Who the fuck is calling an almost 50-year-old Wally Joyner "Wallace Keith Joyner?"

    Also, how the fuck is Wally Joyner turning 50 this year?
