The Flushing Flash
Sorry for being so NY-centric today, but I am a New Yorker, so you will have to deal with it sometimes. I'm sorry for living in the center of the universe. Anyway, some guy was arrested at Shea on Friday night for shining a high powered flash light at Braves pitcher Tim Hudson and shortstop Edgar Renteria. Worst case scenario- he gets 1 yr in jail and $5,000 fine. What a dope! How do you pull this move in an early season game where the Mets are down by 7 runs? Save the flashlight gag for a crucial moment in a playoff game or at least an important regular season contest. Now ushers, players, umps, and fans are all hip to the game and chance for something like this to succeed again is close to nil. Way to go jerk.
