    Chuck Knoblauch pleads guilty to assault

    Pity she wasn't a 1st baseman. He'd have never hit her then.

    At the risk of once again being accused of being humorless I'm not sure making jokes about domestic abuse is in very good taste Chip.

    I had this very thought ready to post before I opened the thread. Hate when my thunder gets stolen in the very first post!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Very funny. Somewhat offensive, but still very funny.

    I thought it was pretty funny myself. It makes fun of his ability to throw to first base. It does not make fun of domestic abuse. Anybody can see that Chip wasn't making light of domestic abuse

    According to a criminal complaint, Knoblauch's wife told police he hit her in the face and choked her at their Houston home in September.
    This situation being used to make a joke is tasteless.

    Sad that others don't see it IMO.

    If I'd have thought of it first, I'd have posted it. Very funny.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    "Funny" would be some of you guys getting clobbered in the nads with a medicine ball.

    Now THAT would be hysterical.

    I'd like to nominate Chip for the most "Family Friendly Poster of the Year".

    Between this and the shaving pubic hair post from the other day I would say he wins it hands down!!! http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80713
