Very appropriate. Getting an old bat to discuss baseball.

These two know anything about baseball? Will someone be helping them with a teleprompter?

Baseball - the Anti-American Pastime?

Ted Williams would break a bat off in their rectal cavity.

They don't know anything about war or politics but that doesn't keep them from working without a net there. Why should baseball be any different? I care even less about what they have to say about baseball than I do what they have to say about the war.

How can they keep out Pete Rose if they let Sarandon in? The Hall is being desecrated by the Slut and her keeper.

Why would ESPN care? It's owned by Disney, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the elite left.

Sarandon makes a movie about baseball, and this entitles her to appear on a panel discussing it. Once again the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred.

(Racking my brain trying to remember a film in which she did not come off as a pontificating, hardnosed, elitist snob. Nope. She even managed to be that way in "Little Women".)

If you saw the movie....The movie was actually filmed in the fall (not during baseball season) you cant notice the cold air coming out of the actors mouths like you might see on a cold winter night and also the grass is brown not a summer green you would expect.

Hey! Come on people! Bull Durham is one of the best ever movies made about baseball. It is entrely appropriate that they be there.

I have little or no use for their politics, but this isn't politics, this is baseball. I wish I could be there for this.

Let's keep a little perspective, please.

What's next Susan? A panel discussion of the "Rocky horror picture show"?

These lefties will never realize how irrelevant and worthless they have become. And how much they are disliked, even hated by the majority of liberty loving Americans.

No, they are not married. There was a bunch of guff from the Catholic church when she portrayed the nun in Dead Man Walking, because she is such a slut and sinner herself.

Including Susan Sarandon on the disucssion board is (IMO) a slap in the face to those kids from "The Bad News Bears." What about their opionions? Huh?

Yahoo!!!!

The enemy will be in my back yard. Time to organize a pro-American protest. Every Wednesday we have to endure a handful of worn-out old hippie protesters in front of our Post Office, which is directly across from the HOF.

They are so inconsiderate that they block the handicap ramp with their trashy communist signs.

Cooperstown is a nice clean small town and more conservative than you would think, being in NY and all. These protesters try to push their agenda on families that drive from all over the U.S. to see the HOF. What an embarassment they are to our town.

Believe me, when they see me coming in to check my mail, they cower and run for cover. I make it a point to check my mail every Wednesday just to watch them shudder.

Any Cooperstown area Freepers interested?

My son used to work for a friend who has a baseball memorabilia store in Cooperstown. Tim Robbins used to come into the store each year with one or two of his kids. He's apparently a regular in the area. Guess this time he's bringing the old lady. Must be she's not getting many movie offers these days.

. . . and her batty husband.

Ms. Sarandon and Tim Robbins are not now and never have been married.

In the vernacular, she's been living in sin and raising a bunch of bastards.

As Casey Stengel said, "You could look it up".

Uh huh. Get back to me after they have this panel discussion; I'm really curious about how Susie and Timmy are going to segue from Bull Durham to the slaughter of Iraqi women and children.

Baseball is American, and Sarandon is not. Sarandon's name is a pitiful contrast to a heroine like Jessica Lynch, who was willing to give her life for our country, so that even people like Sarandon can be free. Sarandon has given "aid and comfort to the enemy", and this is not going to be forgotten.

IMHO....The baseball hall of fame has no credibility until they induct the name...Peter Edward Rose....but i'm biased...I'm a big reds fan from the 70's.....I swore I'd never go back there until he goes in.

Be patient, it will happen. Hopefully he'll be alive to see it.

The issue here is that we don't want Sarandon and her pimp soiling our streets. I will be there, alone if I have to, to protest her presence.

They know at least as much about baseball as Sally Field, Sissy Spacek and Jessica Lange know about Farm Subsidies. And the N'Sync guy knows about strip mining. And Meryl Streep knows about Alar. And Martin Sheen knows about being president. And...

Y'know what? I played a doctor in a high school musical. I think I'll go open up a practice...

It'll be an even trade-off for the Hall then, because I'll never go back there if he does get in. (It does look like Selig is going to grant your wish soon, though.)
