Reggie Jackson, dramatic hitter, lousy rationalist
I’m not easily rustled from my not-so-comfy roost here at IIATMS HQ, but this morning, Reggie Jackson managed to rankle me quite a bit.
Now, before we review, I must say that I am a big Reggie fan. I was at the prime impressionable ages when Reggie was doing his thing in pinstripes. Heck, I was wearing my #44 jersey when my first was born years ago on Opening Day, 4/4, so yeah, I am a Reggie fan.
Except now, Reggie is repeatedly asked his opinion on such weighty things like the Hall of Fame. Sure, he’s qualified to know and speak on the subject, but his ramblings crumble under the weight of a distinct lack of rationality.
