There’s No Arguing With Moron Umps

“He touched the bag!”
“He interfered!”
“He touched the bag!”
“He interfered!”
“Well I say he’s safe!”
“Well I say he’s out!”
“He’s safe!”
“He’s out!”
“He’s safe!”
“He’s out!”
“Have it your way, Doc. He’s out.”
“Oh no ya don’t. He’s safe! Game’s tied 3-3.”

If only it worked that way in real life. Though I do think Joe West and C.B. Bucknor are, along the lines of the Gas House Gorillas of yore, Phillies disguised as umpires.
