DON’T MAKE ME COME BACK THERE

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row gap=”10″][vc_column][vc_column_text]By the Memorial Day weekend it appeared yet another embarrassing MLB storyline had peaked and the “crisis” over fantasy football was over.

Well, excuse my ignorance. I should have considered subject: Tommy Pham, the man with a $6 million dollar baseball contract and a five-cent head.

Pham was suspended last week for three games after slapping Joc Pederson. It was later revealed that the scuffle was the result of a disagreement about how the two players handled their fantasy football teams.

Two grown men are physically fighting over fantasy football.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]But the good news is that it’s over, right?

Not so fast.

Pham just can’t seem to let it go. The media caught him jawing again this week, but now, Pham is now trying to draw a third player into the controversy. This time, the name is a little more recognizable to the average baseball fan: Mike Trout.

“Trout did a terrible job, man. He is the worst commissioner in fantasy sports because he allowed a lot of [stuff] to go on, and he could’ve solved it all. I don’t want to be the f—ing commissioner; I’ve got other [stuff] to do. [Trout] didn’t want to do it. We put it on him, so it’s kind of our fault too because we made him commissioner.” 

How do the kids express it today? Oh yeah …

The entire story reminds of the two brothers fighting in the backseat during a family road trip and mom and dad yelling over the seat, “Don’t make me come back there …”

Grow up, children. It’s fantasy football.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row gap=”10″][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row gap=”10″][vc_column][vc_column_text]
