Reggie has always been an ornery self-centered prick. Not to mention greatly overrated as a player. Fuck him. I actually took a bit of joy in how withered and old he looked today.In related news, fuck Reggie Jackson, and especially fuck that lifelong POS Rich Gossage:
Reggie Jackson, Goose Gossage attend David Ortiz Hall of Fame ceremony
The story is behind a paywall, but it just says they both initially planned to skip the ceremony "in protest of the induction of David Ortiz over his failed PED test". I don't see it getting much play anywhere else. Have to admit I'm a bit surprised to see Reggie turn into a crotchety old man. On the other hand, I've always considered Gossage to be a complete moron.
Edit: I should note that they apparently decided to attend after all because they didn't want to offend anyone. Too late. I know I shouldn't let something like this annoy me, but I just find it disrespectful and offensive for them to even open their mouths about it to begin with.
