Why The Phillies Deserved A Win

Leave it to your friendly blogging Philadelphian to take solace in this news.

Apparently, a well-known player for the LA Dodgers donated $15K to the anti-gay Proposition 8 in California.

Jeff Kent, who played second base for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season, has stepped into the emotional world of same-sex marriage, giving $15,000 to backers of the California proposition on Tuesday's ballot that would ban it.

In a disclosure filed with the California secretary of state, Kent listed his occupation as professional baseball player for the Dodgers and his address as Austin, Texas. He gave the $15,000 in a transaction dated Monday but which only now is public.

You may recall that the Dodgers lost the league championships to my very own hometown Philadelphia Phillies -- who spanked the Dodgers and went on to win the World Series this past week.

The Phillies are well-known for their pro-gay approach to baseball.

In fact, they've even earned the ire of the right-wing Controlling Wankers of America (CWA). Seems they didn't want the CWA disrupting their gay-friendly game with their hatred, and CWA is outraged that they threw their propagandists out of the privately-operated stadium.

Got to love that.

Meanwhile, let's hope that the Dodgers' Jeff Kent is as poor a performer in anti-gay politics as he and his colleagues were on the baseball diamond against the Phillies!
