You know, nothing says Honoring Jackie Robinson than making his wife pose for an incredibly awkward photo with Bud Selig. (As if there are any other kind with that guy.) Seriously, this guy is the commissioner of Major League Baseball, and every photo of him makes him look like Professor Frink.
Regardless, yesterday MLB honored Jackie Robinson, and on the whole, we thought it was rather tastefully done, though we can't quite figure how many black actors must have turned down the gig last night before they ended up with Marlon Wayans. (To be fair, he was great in Requiem For A Dream.) The soft focus MLB packages were a bit much, but it's tough to argue with the image of an entire baseball team wearing the No. 42. Even if one of them was Jeff Kent.
