Why do we continue to "reward" people who do things in bad taste with attention and free press. If the Sun used its free space to give more acknowledgement to deserving athletes . . . local, high school, etc., rather than dunces, fewer acts of disruption might result.

Brenden, you and your friend Christopher owe the Orioles an apology. Plus some real respect. Look what they had to do because of you, and how embarrassed they are by what a mere few of their fans have done: http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/09/embarrassed-orioles-hire-extra-field-security/
