This may be the last “In the News” for a little while. To be honest, I don’t like being tied down to the structure, so we’ll see what happens. In the meantime, there are three stories “In the News” this week and all three have me saying to myself “That guy is an idiot”. Join me for a quick session of Idiot’s (Not So) Anonymous.

Hello, my name is: Rafael Palmeiro

Why he’s an idiot: After standing in front of congress and wagging his finger saying he had never taken steroids, it was revealed just a short time later that he had tested positive with the Orioles. It was a black eye for his career and for baseball. Now, with the talk about those guys simmering down, he does it again. “I was telling the truth then, and I am telling the truth now,” Palmeiro said. “I don’t know what else I can say. I have never taken steroids. For people who think I took steroids intentionally, I’m never going to convince them. But I hope the voters judge my career fairly and don’t look at one mistake.”

Which is it Rafe? How can you say I have never taken steroids and then the very next sentence say “for the people who think I took steroids intentionally….don’t look at one mistake” Mr. Palmeiro….please go away. You’re an idiot. But that you for sharing, you may sit down.

Hello, my name is: Tucker Carlson

Why he’s an idiot: For those that don’t know, Carlson is a political news correspondent for Fox News. He recently spoke out against President Obama’s praise of the Eagles for giving Mike Vick a second chance. “I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Tucker Carlson said recently. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a cruel, heartless way. Personally, I think he should’ve been executed for that.” Executed? Really? I don’t want to go political or moral on you in this post, but what Carlson said is absurd. Mike Vick paid his time in federal pound you in the butt prison. He’s done exactly what has been asked of him. Leave the guy alone. Thank you Mr. Carlson, you are indeed an idiot.

Hello, my name is: Oney Guillen (with apologies to Bobby Jenks for including him in the picture)

Why he’s an idiot: His Twitter feed is going to ultimately get his dad fired. I honestly don’t think he realizes it. His most recent tweeting was at the expense of Bobby Jenks

hahah memo to bobby jenks get a clue u drink to much and u have had marital problems hugeee ones and the sox stood behind u

they did not air out ur dirty laundry, u came to srping not drinking and then u sucked and started srinking again be a man

be a man and tell the manager or the coaching staff how u feel or the organization when u were with the sox not when u leave

u cried in the managers office bc u have problems now u go and talk bad about the sox after they protected u for 7 years ungrateful.

if it wasnt for u and mainly u freddy garcia would have like 17 wins and the sox would have beat the twins

and u self diagnosed urself bc u didnt want to pitch un real i hope the sox let this guiy fucking have it

oh and yes i remember clearly u blowing a hugee game in 09 and u laughing ur bearded ass off while everyone busting there tail

i thought u were a man not some punk who runs away and talks bullshit. u coward. say it to there face when u were with them

dont make me air out more then i have 2 say ur sorry dont disrespect the White sox ever

now u know what piece of shit person u rooted for chicago. the ones that leave and talk bad about ur team

and u say the manager didnt trust u? he kept putting ur fat ass there and u kept blowing it, he never took u away from that role unreal

go read it its a scott merkin piece its a dandy, i hope people say what they really feel instead of me

although it wouldnt surprise me if the sox take the high road and be classy instead of destroying this yellow beard dipping idiot

and to think u were actually a cool guy and ur word meant something, to bad u dont hit in the AL so they can drill that ass.

one little story remember when u couldnt handle ur drinking and u hit a poor arizona clubby in the face i do. and later u covered it with

Im sorry thats ur answer to everything. How can u disrespect ur ex team like that.

Someone take Oney’s computer away so he’ll just go away. Mr. ONEY Guillen, you’re an idiot. Ozzie, you get a pass on this one.

Now it’s your turn. Either nominate your own (sports related or maybe personal related) or discuss mine. Happy Thursday.
