You may by now have heard that Ryan Howard spent his off day yesterday doing non-baseball related things. Quite justifiably, this had the internet, sports talk radio hosts and legions of fans in an uproar.
After all, none of us want to be made to re-live incidents of the past involving our star athletes and amusement parks. Like the time in 1994 when stalwart outfielder Jim Eisenreich missed two months after a physical altercation that began with him shouting at a giant Reese's cup to "go f*ck its mother in the face."
Godspeed, Ryan. Stay safe out there.
