"Thanks for 50 Great Years Bobby Cocks"

May 5, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

Um, yeah.  Whoever was responsible for the spelling on the cake at the U.S. Senate party honoring the Braves’ skipper on Monday either needs to (a) hire a proofreader; or (b) fire the 13 year-old boy they currently have in the position.

Not that I didn’t laugh way more than a 36 year-old father of two should at such a thing . . .

    Democrats. They can’t do anything right. Vote every single one of them out.

    Infamously not unusual:

    Good thing they weren’t honoring Rusty Kuntz. That would have been a bit awkward.
    Recaptcha: joyant lay. Exactly.
    (I hate the whole posting your recaptcha thing, but that was too apt to pass up.)

    funny I was thinking the same thing about Republicans.

    TFA says Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) (Hey! Another W.Va. Braves fan!) hosted the party, so it was a bipartisan screwup. I’m surprised Jim Bunning wasn’t involved.

    Nah…he was busy holding up Cox’s eventual unemployment checks.

    why….why…why is the US Senate holding a party honoring a baseball manager, even one who has “served’ 50 years?
    I LOVE baseball…and I think that’s frickin’ ridiculous.

    Because it’s something we can trust senators to not screw up.
    (And it’s a multibillion industry with enormous impact on civic and regional pride. If the Senate had no interest at all, it’d be surprising.)

    Time to call Cake Wrecks. They specialize in mocking this kind of Wreckage.

    Two senators hosted the party, not the Senate.

  11. BravesFan - May 5, 2010 at 4:00 PM

    Of course you would…..Carlos.

    We are a dumb people inhabiting planet earth. This is why the aliens are staying away.

    Nice to see our Senators honoring a convicted wife beater.
    He was so good I believe he was charged 4 times over the years I know of 2 for sure in the 90’s. Fine example to our youth.
    Great coach but a real piece of garbage as a person, but he is successful, so who cares.
    We should hold this wife beater up as an example to the young-uns…LOL

    Bobby Cox could win the regular season, but only accidently won the post season. His bad decisions during post season play at critical moments defied common sense.

    At least there is a silver lining in this story at least his first name is not Harry. They probably would have misspelled that too Hairy….

  16. Patrick - May 5, 2010 at 10:42 PM

    Not condoning the action at all, but Cox was only arrested for domestic assault once. Let’s not make the guy out to be some serial domestic abuser who has been given a free pass by MLB. I mean… he’s no Milton Bradley (sarcasm).
