Nothing against Courtney B. Vance or Marlon Wayons, but through what rigorous process were they selected to read a tribute to Jackie Robinson off of friggin' clipboards? What did they do, pull them out of the stands five minutes before this thing got started, shove the clipboards in their hands and say, "Read this"?
Somebody, please explain this to me?
Update, 8:20 - For the past few days, I've struggled with the "Jack" vs. "Jackie" thing. You might've noticed that much of the time, I refer to Robinson as "Jack" - that's because I vaguely remember reading something about how much he hated being called "Jackie".
Well, Rachel Robinson has settled it - she just called him "Jack" twice in a row, so "Jack" it is.
Update, 8:36 - Fire Joe Morgan has the official transcript of the meeting where the decision to hire Wayans was made.
