Today the National Baseball Hall of Fame announced its one and only inductee for 2008. Congratulations to Goose Gossage for making the cut on his ninth ballot. As a few of you may know, I maintain my own hall of fame here at my humble blog. It's not for athletes, though a few athletes got in this year. It's not for politicians or media types, though a few of those are in there, too. It's for those men and women who have entered our collective consciousness as irritants, the people who we see and shake our heads, the ones that, perhaps at their very worst, make us ashamed of being human. They are from many backgrounds, many different walks of life. You can find them on television, on the radio, in print, or in the pulpit. They are a diverse group, but they are united by one inescapable trait which they all share. They are cocksuckers.
