What Did He Do Now to Make Them Mad?

April 20, 2002

It will never cease to amaze (and depress) me that the storied Los Angeles Times sports department--once home of the legendary Jim Murray--would stoop to feature T.J. Simers. It would make better sense for the Yankees to sign Albert Belle and promote him as the next Babe Ruth.

T.J. Simers poses one of his usual inane questions [April 11]: "Why would anyone want 'Bagger' as a last name?"

It should be obvious to everyone, even ones as simple as Simers, that any sane human being would rather have a name associated with an honest blue-collar worker than one associated with an idiot, would-be sit-down comic sports columnist.
