Evil Punk Not Drafted
Remember how annoying it was a while back to hear the stories about YankeePunk Jeffrey Maier tearing up whatever collegiate league he was playing in? All the pinstriped yahoos where chortling over the good fortune of the little jerk who, as a 12-year-old in 1996, illegally reached over the right-field wall at Yankee Stadium catching a Jeter fly ball that was ruled a home run. Of course, New York beat Baltimore and went on to win the first of 4 championships (although none yet in THIS century). As the Bronx Boors were so thrilled to point out, the YankeePunk set the Wesleyan University career hits record and was sure to be drafted by a major league club. Well, 148 rounds later, PunkBoy did not get the call and will have to work at a real job. There is some justice in the world.
