What Sucks…Jim Leyland (Retiring)

Jim Leyland, the chain smoking, baseball lifer who won a World Championship with the Florida Marlins in 1997 has decided to hang them up today after a lifetime in baseball.  In addition to the Marlins, he managed The Pittsburgh Pirates, Colorado Rockies and most recently the Detroit Tigers.  Leyland is here today because he was a classy guy who got it. He will be remembered for a lot of things, but he will be remembered here for his classy decision to pull all the players off the field so that the great Mariano Rivera could be honored as he came in in what would be his last All Star game. 

Class.  Hard-nosed baseball and, of course, cigarettes.  Jim Leyland will be missed in MLB.

What Sucks…The Reaper

Underrated and perpetually bald “that guy” actor, Ed Lauter- you knew him as “that guy” from, “Youngblood”, the first (and second) “Longest Yard”, the horrendous Anthony Hopkins/ murderous ventriloquist film “Magic”, (directed by Richard Attenborough and co-staring Burgess Meredith and Ann-Margret), “Born on the Fourth of July”, “Talladega Nights” and “Trouble With The Curve”, in all of which he probably played a guy 2 days away from retirement who was too old for whatever shit was going down, has died at the age of 74. 

I would be surprised as shit if this dude WASN’T literally credited as “that guy”, in the 60 or so films that appear on his IMDB page. 

Ed Lauter, great character actor, RIP.

What Sucks Presents...The Worst Page On The Internet Today!

Take a good look- click to enlarge if you have to- it's all there, a sex offender says her lover ordered the "baby rape", the man who brought his family to meet the underage teen he planned to "have sex with", the janitor who paid kids to beat up another kid.  Let's not bury the lead either, don't forget Ariel Castro's accidental suicide where in the prison cell he was in, he was able to do the whole "Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation" thing. 

Way to go humanity AND HuffPo! (I'm sure no one got paid for those articles and if there was a video on there, you had to sit through a commercial before seeing it!)
