Looks like it... he came to bat last night to the song, "Billie Jean" and wearing ONE white batting glove:

^cause he got ridiculed in his trade BP thread :)? J/k.
I still get thrown off by people claiming MJ is michael jackson, I read thread title and thought "of course, he prob is a Jordan fan", that is the only MJ.

Sorry for the confusion. I would agree 'MJ' should refer to Jordan before Jackson. I shouldn't have taken the shortcut. :)

I'm no fan of Michael's. I just thought it was interesting that Jr. was.

Idolizing celebs far beyond real heros: But not a pedophile who wanted nothing more than to be different than what God made him. He was super talented; wasn't that enough? Mutilating his face and bleaching the crap out of his skin; for what? Great example to youth, btw. Sorry MJ fans (and I liked some of his music myself) he was a walking freak show.

Think this belongs in some political forum.

That was nice of Junior to do. I'm sure he was a big fan of Jackson's music growing up and that's probably why he did it.

I will always respect people's opinions and I think Junior's should be respected as well. There will always be people who think Michael Jackson is a pedophile and people who will argue he is not. Either way, I see no point in giving a thumbs down to Junior giving a tribute to someone he probably grew up a big fan of. Also, if it's going to get your panties in a wad with people giving tributes then your going to be upset an awful lot. Many players have been giving a nod to Michael, not just Junior.

Easy killer, I wasn't trying to upset you, just giving my opinion too.

Yeah, but your opinion is about my opinion! Not really about the OP. Killer? That is silly!

If he would have gone yard and then "moonwalked" around the bases that would have been the ultimate tribute.

They should all get a thumbs down. The guy is a pedophile, the worst possible thing one can be.

Before someone gets into trouble, this thread should be closed.

But if you're going to express an opinion, you should expect also to have to defend it. I don't know why you bothered to post it at all. Typically, I just ignore posts that don't interest me.

And that's my opinion.:D
