Courtesy of our friends at The Onion (http://www.theonion.com) is this photo op, under the headline

Nostalgia Prompts Return Of Negro Baseball Leagues

Feel free to debate the presence or absence of comedy here, but I'll bet you it was the presence of Lindner in the shot that sold this idea, and for some reason I find that notion amusing.

Yikes! It took me a while to find the article which first ran two years ago in 2004. The Onion often does some good spoofing and this one tweaks clothing and memorabilia sales so heralded by MLB.

Well first of all it required a search to find the original article which is from 2004. It fictionalized Lindner's name as Tom Forst which makes no sense to me. I personally didn't find it amuzing but here's the link to the original article from 2004 with the picture.

Or you could get to the pic from today's home page, like I did by clicking on the "News in Photos" section.
