Pro Baseball Players Get Married
Okay, it was just a prank by two veterans on the Toronto Blue Jays who got punked by teammates earlier. But I love that it was the shortstop and second baseman because those are two players who work more symbiotically than almost anyone else except the pitcher and the catcher (no jokes please). Those are also the positions the players played in the comic gay baseball novel The Dreyfuss Affair, which someone is always threatening to turn into a movie. (Which is fine with me as long as they change the ending.) But it is telling that they could pull this prank and everyone would joke about it, down tothe players telling the reporters were they went on their honeymoon. Progress takes all sorts of unexpected forms, doesn't it?
