Homespun Blogger Symposium XXVII

At the risk of alienating you non-sports fans, I'm going to bring up the recent controversy boiling over here in the Lone Star State.

By now, you've probably heard about the Texas Ranger's pitcher, Kenny Rogers (no, not crooning kind), pitched another fit in Arlington, Texas. Read about it in this FoxNews story here. for the symposium's question of the week:

Is the penalty imposed by Major League Baseball Commissioner, Bud Selig, appropriate for the infraction? If you didn't go the story, Kenny Rogers has been suspended for 20 games and fined $50,000.

Please address the problem with professional athletes seemingly to think that they are above the law and untouchable when it comes to their on and off field conduct.

Thanks...and have a great Fourth of July weekend. Be careful out there.

See you on the high ground!
