The Old Man and the B
And you heard about four hours of the old man calling out Brian Wilson for hopping 'cross the desert to spend some time with Charlie Sheen as a "consultant" for the upcoming Major League 4 (which probably is under the working title of ML4: Hey, We Got Charlie Sheen to do the Movie Again? Somebody Call Snipes -- He's Not Doing Anything Either....Is Corbin Bernsen Still Alive?)
Anyway, Old Man Lurie got his Grandpa Simpson on bitchin' about how B-Weezy's not practicing because he's hurt, but he can jet quickly to LA for a wild weekend with the Hooker-Luvin', Drug Snorting, Denise Richards-dumpin' party boy from Lucas.
First of all, I smell Showtime's new knock off reality show behind this jaunt.
Secondly, It's the 21st Century: fellas (especially specialists like Wilson) don't have to train with the team every weekend.
And C, It's not 1986 anymore, and this ain't the set of Young Guns -- I'm sure Charlie Sheen is not doing coke parties, not with cameras present anyways.
I don't like the idea of this show, I don't think it's necessary and I just think it ends up as a big effin' distraction. Nothing good ever came from all-access to a baseball club, just like no good ever came from giving a pitcher $20 mill/year.
So, to recap: Less concerned about the trip, more concerned about the Hollywood producers behind the trip.
