There's a Sucker Born Every Minute

To quote the actor better known as "Squiggy" on "Laverne & Shirley" from the movie "A League of Their Own"... "Take me home momma, I have seen enough to know that I have seen too much."

The Boston Red Sox are now offering for sale, "Championship Sod used on the field at Fenway Park during the 2004 season" on their website.

So let me see ... the Rolling Stones trash the outfield grass two weeks ago, causing it to be replaced. Will that be for sale once the Championship turf sells out?

Have these guys -- Red Sox ownership -- no shame whatsoever?

What's next?

Bottled hot-air from Kevin Millar from any post game interview?

Authentic pieces of the plastic used to cover the players' lockers during the World Series post Game 4 celebration?

Wood chips from the stage used for the presentation of the World Series trophy?

Cloth remnants from the towels used by players after their championship clinching showers?

Empty champagne beer (and, of course, Jack Daniels) bottles from the Sox locker room celebration?

Genuine spittle from David Ortiz's batting gloves from right before his ALDS game-winning home run versus the Angels?

Wads of chew gnawed on by Terry Francona during the 2004 season?

Pine tar from Trot Nixon's helmet?

Paper towels used by Manny during one of his outfield "Green Monster breaks?"

Baggies of vomit scooped from Lansdowne Street following the series victory?

Johnny Damon was only partly right.

It's all of Red Sox Nation who are really the idiots.
