What’s Up with the Adholes at Sports Illustrated?

Dear Ad Nauseum,

I think it means I had to watch one of the spots instead. So I did. I watched the Picabo Street ad.

 

 

Which got me to this screen:

What’s Up with the Hispanics Across America ‘Bad Selig’ NYT Ad?

DrAdsforProfileWell the Doc opened up the old mailbag today and here’s what poured out.

Dear Dr. Ads,

So I was watching the St. Louis Cardinals beat the stuffing out of the Los Angeles Dodgers last night.

 

At which point I started reading Friday’s New York Times sports section.

At which point I saw this full-page ad from Hispanics Across America.

“A disgrace to the game, to the players and our children?”

Seriously?

And then there’s this: “That’s why we are fighting for justice for Alex Rodriguez.”

Apparently they aren’t.

Your prescription for a response, Doc?

– Your Bud

 

Dear Actually Not My Bud,

First of all, you’ve read the disclaimer at the top, right?

Second of all, Go Redbirds!

Yo.
