Peter Peter Peter

Peter is always good for saying at least two absurd things in the course of any article he writes. Today was no different.

Owens is a great football player in a 14-year-old boy's body.

I'm sure that what Peter really meant to say is not a reflection of what the sentence actually means. I'm sure he means that Terrell Owens has the mentality of a 14-year-old and not the body of one. That is, unless he knows a lot of 14-year-old boys who look like this. Obviously, the editors had more important things to do than actually edit Peter's article. Or this could point to my long held theory that no one holds any sportswriter or sports radio host accountable for what he/she says.

Next to the Super Bowl, the World Baseball Classic might be the best invented sports event of our lifetime.

To say that the Super Bowl is the best invented sports event of our lifetime is understandable coming from Peter King. He covers the NFL for a living so of course he is going to be a little biased. I get that. What I don't get is how Peter can seriously believe the World Baseball Classic is better than all other sporting events, better than the Olympics, the NCAA Basketball Tournament, the College World Series, the Master's, the Westminster Dog Show, basically any sporting event not named the World Baseball Classic.

For those of you who do not know, the WBC was supposed to be the baseball equivalent of the World Cup. The only difference is the WBC is a waste of everyone's time. How can Peter be in love with a contest where Korea beats Japan twice only to be beaten by Japan once and the one time that Japan beats Korea allows them to get into the championship game against Cuba? It defies all logic for someone to say something so imbecilic. They had fucking pitch counts for pitchers. And mercy rules. And tiebreakers that couldn't be solved by a goddamn NASA scientist. You've got to be kidding me, Peter King.
