Do What Now?

So I get that MLB is wanting to check out the umps a little more carefully because of the whole NBA-ref-gambling thing. But this is pretty extreme:

"The questions that we found out are being asked are about beating wives, marijuana use and extravagant parties," World Umpires Association president John Hirschbeck said in a telephone interview Wednesday. "And then finally with this whole thing about the Ku Klux Klan."

Just for the record, neither Jim nor I condone umpires (or anyone else) participating in domestic violence, illegal drug use, or the Klan.

But, jeez Louise...are they really worried the umps are up to their eyeballs in this stuff?

I think Ken Tremendous at FJM puts it best when he asks "F*** the heck?"
