Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

TheDanPatrickShow YouTube Channel video: Bob Costas on The Dan Patrick Show 4/12/13, re Jackie Robinson's legacy, Branch Rickey's initiative and the new "42" film
by Brian Helgeland, starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford; Dodgers-Padres brawl, Carlos Quentin and Zack Greinke injury; Costas blasts CBS Sports' long history of censoring racism and sexism at The Masters Golf tourney in Augusta, GA. Uploaded April 12, 2013. http://youtu.be/npWu09W4rCE



San Diego Padre batter Carlos Quentin takes offense at not only being hit for the third time by LA Dodger pitcher Zack Greinke, but Greinke's smart-ass comments to Quentin afterwards, prompting Quentin to charge the mound and resulting collision breaks Greinke's collarbone. Long-term result: Highly-paid Greinke is out for at least eight weeks, and Dodgers season outlook takes an immediate downturn, while defending World Champion San Francisco Giants fans are laughing at their good fortune and laughing at the Dodgers penchant for self-destruction borne of ego.

The difference between culpability and common sense can be enormous in sports. You can do nothing wrong yet lose your judgment in a split-second and pay a huge price for your unnecessary bravery. Listen up, Zack Greinke. As your broken collarbone heals, and the Dodgers contemplate the fortune they agreed to pay you to pitch, not to fight giants, the moral will become clear.
Baseball has long had an unwritten rule. In fact, there is even a date associated with it: May 17, 1956. That day 170-pound Ruben Gomez hit 210-pound Joe Adcock with a fastball; then, as Adcock charged the mound, Gomez ran all over the Milwaukee infield and into the safety of his own Giant dugout, leaving the murderous Adcock in futile pursuit. Gomez lived.
