OMG - Tangentially Cub-related incident that makes me proud to be an American

This one is for a young man named Kurt.

You all know that Hanley Ramirez dogged it, got benched, then acted like a bitch.

Then he got called into the office with Andre Dawson and Tony Perez.

MAN, that's strong.  Two Hall-of-Famers, two Special Assistants for the Marlins, two straight-up iron-fisted bad-assed stud hosses who never took a gatdam play off in their entire LIVES!! 

Hawk started the conversation by noting 'I'm not going to say a lot, because if you say the wrong the thing to me, then you might wind up on the floor on your rear end.'  Perez stood there and nodded. 

This actually happened.  They told the spoiled young punk to respect.

I am literally tearful with pride that such men still exist in today's namby-pamby world. 

Still a BAD ASS after all

Still a BAD ASS after all these years! Maybe he should come kick LEE and ARAMIS in the ass too!

new job

Hawk's new job could be "Certified Bad Ass". He just roams from clubhouse to clubhouse verbally (and physically if necessary) bitch slapping whiny players who lolly gag
