  1. For some inexplicable reason, I despise Justin Turner. I’m ambivalent on the Dodgers, Turner has never done anything wrong, he seems like a decent dude, and I’m cool with gingers and leprechauns. But I look at him and I instantly want to punch him in the face.

    With that being said, HIS TEAM JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES. I think he gets a pass here.

  2. Yeah because when he didn’t know for those first 8 innings the virus didn’t magically spread to his team mates. But once he came back to celebrate it did. This is the most asinine pandmeic I think in the history of man.

  3. This whole virus thing is such a sham. It’s not the flu, but really, it’s just the flu, and we have LOST OUR EVERLASTING MINDS OVER THE FLU.

    If he had been diagnosed with the actual flu, he wouldn’t be pulled off the field and everyone would talk about how “gutsy” his performance was (see MJ) and how he was a team player.

    Clearly none of his teammates care and that ultimately shows what they think of this nonsense theater, too.
