Ah, The Exploitation Of A Child. Always Fun!

You can always count on the sports world to find a way to take advantage of kids. In the wake of last week's news that a Marlins batboy was suspended for speed-drinking a gallon of milk, various folks are stepping up to promote their own agendas, in the guise of "helping out the kid."

The Ft. Myers Miracle minor league team has offered the kid a job. A casino is offering the kid a free trip to Panama if he can pull off the trick again. And the Milk Processor Education Program — whatever the hell that is — is offering to give the kid some money back too. This, of course, all came to the surface because Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny, who made the dare in the first place, hates the Marlins organization and cherished embarrassing them. So, you know, welcome to the bigs, kid!
