The Greatest Play in Baseball Ė Involving an American Flag at Least (genghis)

Update/Breaking: Former NFL QB Steve McNair found shot to death at a Nashville residence. A woman was also found shot to death at the scene. She's been "tentatively" identified but police haven't officially released her name yet. Not many details yet, but what there are you can read about at CNN or elsewhere.

Thanks to "Dr. Carlo Lombardi" in the comments.

Note: Before anyone goes off half-cocked in the comments, please read the disclaimer below the vid & the fold. However, even if the incident isnít exactly what it might seem to be at first glance, itís still worth watching and Rick Monday deserves kudos for his actions. If nothing else, Monday also served in the Marine Corps and has apparently done some additional good deeds on behalf of veteransí organizations over the years.

PS: If you haven't watched the vid dri posted in the Top Headlines called "Train vs. Tornado" yet, you don't know what you're missing. Freaky it is.

A couple of disclaimers about the vid/flag incident: The person who posted the vid at YouTube (at least this copy of it) added to the description that the protesters attempting to torch the flag were Muslim. This is apparently not the case as they were persons of pallor. Some of the commenters at YouTube further say that they werenít scroungy anti-war-type protesters but rather a father and son protesting something to do with their wife/mother being locked up in a mental institution. Of course by pulling off a batshit crazy stunt like that you have to wonder if they were trying to get her released or lobbying to join her. I havenít done any more background research on it than that but youíre more than welcome to.

Even if thatís the case though, torching an American flag in the outfield probably isnít going to attract a lot of sympathy to your cause. Wikipedia has a little more about the incident along with a bio of Rick Monday.

Video found at the blog of Dori Monson.
