I am so glad that a lawmaker has decided to DO SOMETHING about the less than stellar umpiring in the 2005 MLB Postseason. Thank the GODS that SOMEBODY is looking out for the interest of the fans, the integrity of the game and trying to make them pay for being crappy!
Ok, so that was a sarcastic blast at Missouri Rep. Jeff Roorda, D-Barnhart. He is so darn upset about this that he has decided to tax umpires for working in Missouri. That's right, you don't do the job right and you're going to get taxed. I can see from looking at his Official Page that this falls under keeping Terrorism under control. It also helps with Corrections. And it would be a huge boost for Economic Development in the State of Missouri.
This guy is a clown who is grandstanding for the voters. And if that's not enough, he plans on wasting the time of the Legislature by actually introducing a Bill. This is such a high priority for the State of Missouri, I'm sure. To be honest, I think he's been watching too much of McCain and Bunning's steroids posturing for his own good.
