Hidden: So he won't be turning the jailbait double play, then ...: Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein is not going to the Cape Elizabeth High School prom with two teenaged girls he met during spring training recently. No word on whether someone might show up in a gorilla suit.

2nd best double play mention on SpoFi this week. BullpenPro gets the No-Prize.

Neat story. At first I was like oh no not more bad press for good sports. I was relieve to read the article and found it enjoyable. Cool

Well this thread is going swimmingly. You don't get it, do you? Billpointsout that a misleading child molestation joke on the front page of a perfectly nice story might be off color, and it becomes some kind of reactionary ass-joke pile-on. This is the kind of shit that stops Spofi from being the best place for sports discussion on the net, and brings the signal-to-noise ratio down to the level of Yahoo news or Sports Radio or some shit. frazer, admit that your post was a piss-poor choice of words, okay? And everyone else, step off.

My sister went to the prom with Gene "Stick" Michael. Ok, Ok, I'm stepping off.

I still don't get "jailbait double play"-- where's the funny? I don't mean it like I'm offended; I legitimately don't get the connection.

Something with the two girls and a molestation, something like that I guess. Though personally, if I were a girl I'd think it was cool to have a guy like Theo come to my prom.

Wow. Did I arrive late to this thread? Were a whole bunch of comments deleted or something?

Yup, I think I pissed the SpoFi Gods off. Me so sorry...

Not sure about a whole bunch Grum but two of mine and at least one of frazer's and wingnut's were. No big deal. Still don't care for the jailbait joke though.

billsaysthis, if I didn't know any better, I'd say that you were trying to get the last word in.

stories like these mabey fun for some, but for me, kinda of a waste of time to read.

I don't mean it like I'm offended; I legitimately don't get the connection How about the fact that the man is 30 yrs old and the two biatches are obviously still in High School? Although most of you wouldn't understand this since you either did not attend your prom or took your cousin as your date. You assholes are trying to be so PC that you can't even recognize humor anymore. It's a sad day when a comment about jail bait and ass play can't even get a chuckle. Stop trying to be the Superfriends of the net and lighten up a bit.

Stop trying to be the Superfriends of the net and lighten up a bit. If not finding humor in an underage girl being ass-raped qualifies me as a Superfriend, then call me Gleek. Stop referring to women as 'biatches' and get to know the mores of the community you've recently joined.

I would say we're getting a little overly fucking sensitive in here now, but I also agree -- not the best choice of words. Pantheon, I say delete the whole damned thing.
