which makes it all the more shocking, and embarrassing on our part. I agree with Dougdirt, there is at least one fan a game I hear bashing Griffey for reasons undeserving. There are so many misconceptions about Griff. The casual fan loves to complain about him yet knows nothing about baseball. My favorite over heard quote at a game ever is "When did Griffey get moved to right?" That was last year, then they proceeded to knock him.
