SportsDash: What kind of a jackwagon would steal Hunter Pence’s scooter?

May 27, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

We learned yesterday that someone went and stole Hunter Pence‘s motorized scooter. That’s low, man. Today Kay Adams, Dave Briggs and I talked about it on SportsDash on NBCSN:

    This man deserves his scooter back! and fast because he went 0-4 yesterday, and who seriously steals a scooter?

    If a player loses his Rolex, is that a story also.

    Robbers should do a background check before stealing something that was left on the street… had it been mine: sure, go ahead and steal it, but Pence? Come on!!! Baseball players are basically on the verge of welfare. We should pony up to buy Hunter P. a new scooter, poor boy.

    Glad to see this non-story warranted a second post. Any breaking news regarding ScooterGate?

    It’s a mystery.

    Link doesn’t work

      It actually works, but says Page not found, rather than the aforementioned article.

      Just before the cable car clipped him.

    The real question is why it was left in a place where any ol’ jackwagon could steal it?

    Secret Squirrel is going to be pissed!

    What kind of a jackwagon still uses the term jackwagon?

    Pence already commented yesterday that the scooter was unlocked because it apparently had some odd and rare charging connector such that a thief woud be unlikely to be able to use it. Now I will grant you that this is taking a chance that a thief has a brain. I once had a battered old black English 3-speed bike that I was young, poor, and crazy enough to ride through the streets of Boston (only narrowly missed “execution by cabbie”, oh, maybe 6 times.) The bike might have been worth $80 if it hadn’t been rusted and bashed about so maybe $20? Nevertheless I locked it with a chain about a half-inch thick that was coated in this special, gritty plastic designed to thwart hacksaws (very popular top-selling item in Boston bike shops then.) My point is that YES Pence could have been more careful, but it is still pretty mean-spirited to mock him just because he makes a lot more money than we do.
