Bugs Bunny, greatest banned player ever

This isn’t a tip that is going to help you with your computer. However, it is a great example of how the Internet brings us material like this that we never would have seen before.

I’m a big sports fan (I don’t play much, but follow several sports), and love baseball (don’t get me started about the Mitchell Report). NPR has a show on Saturday’s called Only a Game that always has interesting sports stories. They recently highlighted the book Best American Sports Writing 2007 which is a collection of sporting essays and articles. One of the articles is about Bugs Bunny. Baseball Bugs, from 1946, is about Bugs Bunny playing baseball against the Gas House Gorillas. Before he arrives, the Tea Totallers are losing 94-0. When he arrives, he hits, pitches and fields like a superstar. The article takes the approach that Bugs was a real person and tries to analyze his performance. It’s very interesting and a good read!

You don’t have to buy the book to read the article. You can read Bugs Bunny, greatest banned player ever on the U.S.S. Mariner site.
