A Pittsburg Pirate assaulted one of our racing sausage mascots during last night's Brewers home game. Shamefull! Shamefull I tell you!

(but not as shameful as the Brewers win loss record. Ugg)

I mean really, how would you feel if someone took a whack at
your sausage.

Shouldn't we expect better public on-the-job behavior from someone who is being paid $1.475 million (U.S.)?

I am now ashamed to live in PA....

I think that the girl in the costume should take a swing at him as he rounds third.

Yeah, I think I heard that he was released from the Devil Rays AA team. That guy was untouchable in his prime and ever since his racist comments he has been miserable. Sausage Slugger Randall Simon was Rocker's Teammate in Atlanta. He was the one who Rocker called a "Fat Monkey."

Pittsburgh is not "really" considered PA. They're a little odd out there.

They say YINS ??

Let's not be too quick to judge the Pirates. We all come from different cultural backgrounds where different customs are considered acceptible. Maybe in Pittburgh it is common for overpaid ball players to beat their meat.

I wouldn't be ashamed to live in PA because Simon lives on Curacao, not Pittsburgh.

How's this for penance... The next time the Brewers are in PA the racing sausages get to hit Simone freely with a bat. They are then allowed to take a single swing (in costume) at one of our racing perogies as they round the field. Although they may fight back and the whole thing could collapse into a Hunkie food mascot free-for-all.

Honestly, he should be charged with assault and fired from the Pitates.

The sausage girl demonstrated more sense and sportsmanship than Simon.

Nobody better touch my beloved "Puffy Taco" of the San Antonio Missions minor league! What is with people at baseball games now?! First fans are assaulting players & umps, now the players themselves are attacking mascots?!

Everyones getting a big kick out of how much attention this really, really stupid story is getting. The news around the office today is that the Sausages are going to race against the perogies when the Brewers are in Pittsburgh next week. That should bring out a crowd for the game.

Makes me wonder how something like this could happen between two cities as classy as Milwaukee and Pittsburgh. ;)

If I remember right, Puffy Taco was named the top Mascot in baseball last year (it may have just been minors). It does kind of sound like a porno flik though. With the "beat the meat" jokes about the sausage, I can only imagine the comments if that happened to Puffy Taco...

sausage

No excuses here. Can his a$$.
But it could be worse. In Cleveland a few years ago the Indians had to forfeit a game on free beer night beacuse of the crowd. (Who in their right mind would give that many Clevelanders free beer is beyond me.) And, Philly is known for pelting Santa with snow balls, so there. And Pittsburgers say "yunz" not "yins."
