Richie Sexson Takes Umbrage, Has Bad Eyesight

Watch as Richie Sexson charges the mound after Kason Gabbard throws a pitch at his head, sparking a riotous brawl between the Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers:



Oh shit no, that pitch was nowheres near his head. And yet Sexson charged the mound, threw his helmet, and tackled Gabbard, probably sending the dainty pitcher back to the disabled list. Maybe all this renewed energy by the Mariners will fill the seats. Or...maybe not.

Nice highlights, Sexon. I hope someone keys your PT Cruiser.

So Richie Sexson can't hit a pitcher that way either?

That really hurt! I'm gonna have a lump there. Who throws a batting helmet? Honestly. You fight like a woman.

Who throws a batting helmet?

Allow me to introduce you to my friend Paul O'Neill.

From the Seattle Times:

Sexson admitted he should not have thrown the helmet. Used a swear word to describe his action, which has to do with a chicken and is a euphamism for cowardly. But he doesn't regret charging the mound, saying he was consumed with rage to see Kason Gabbard throw up near his face.

"I'm 6"8, what are we talking about here?'' Sexson said. "He's a guy who can hit corners at will. All of a sudden, he's up near my face?''

Sexson expected to be hit by Gabbard after Felix Hernandez plunked two Rangers. "I understand the situation,'' Sexson said. "There's a right and a wrong way to play the game. Hit me below the shoulders and I'm fine with that. You get up near the face and that's when you start talking about careers and you start talking about family.''

Sexson had missed Wednesday's game to tend to his sick son in the hospital. He admitted the stress of that, plus the team's dismal slide, likely contributed to the rage that exploded inside his head.

"I'm sure it all came to a head right there,'' he said. "It's no secret we haven't scored a lot of runs for a while. It's no secret we haven't lived up to our potential.''

Chickenfucker?

-- Everyone who owned Sexson in a fantasy league last year

And then of course Sexson adds the I'm-a-victim excuse ("Sexson had missed Wednesday's game to tend to his sick son in the hospital. He admitted the stress of that, plus the team's dismal slide, likely contributed to the rage that exploded inside his head."). Sounds like an Obama supporter.

Sexson ought to be suspended merely for being so pathetic.

Vomit Bukkake?

Greatest Ron Washington quote ever:

“I thought that was bull,” Washington said. “How tall is he, 6-13? Then you go out there on a little guy and throw a helmet?”

+1 if you made that quote up

+10 if you didn't

@pikkumatti

John McCain was irate when he saw Sexson running all over the goddamned lawn.

@freetzy

"But the anger is real; it is powerful. And to simply wish it away, to condemn it without understanding its roots, only serves to widen the chasm of misunderstanding that exists . . . "

I think this calls for me reassigning a nickname that I gave this really tall, goofy, retarded shithead at my summer camp like 13 years ago, to Mr. Richard Sexson.
