Hi, I am Bud Selig, and I am an idiot

According to an article in The Daily News this morning, Bud Selig is considering levying punishment on Alex Rodriguez for his admitted steroid use from 2001 to 2003.

"It was against the law, so I would have to think about that," Selig told the paper. "It's very hard. I've got to think about all that kind of stuff."

This is just amazing to me that Selig is moronic enough to make a statement like this. First of all, "...all that kind of stuff"???? Should we really be comfortable with a commissioner with the verbal prowess of a third grade book report? How exactly does he plan on punishing Alex Rodriguez for taking a drug that he himself was too ignorant to ban in the first place? WHat about the other 103 players that tested positive?

There was a point when Bud Selig's tenure as commissioner would forever be marked by the triumph of the Wild Card system. Now his reign will be riddled with steroids, tied All-Star games, strikes, and missed World Series. Incompetence and ignorance will now be the hallmark of the Selig Era, and rightfully so. After pulling the game from the depths of unpopularity (**cough** thanks to Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa hitting 139 steroid induced home runs **cough), Bud Selig has become the worst commissioner in sports. Well, baseball and football, because they are the only major sports left, but you get my point. He should obviously be the highest paid commissioner in all the land.
