Manny Has A New Way To Walk

A funny case of mistaken identity or blatant police racism? Geoff Baker reports, you decide.

Seems that Boston slugger Manny Ramirez was leaving the ballpark, with headphones on trying to look inconspicuous and quickly get away from the crowds still leaving the stadium. He started to cross South Royal Brougham Way, against the signals of a traffic cop who was directing pedestrians. The police officer demanded that Ramirez open his wallet and show identification. He warned him that he could face a $500 fine and possible arrest for disobeying a police officer.

It became clear to those watching that the policeman had no idea who Ramirez was. He didn't ask for an autograph or anything, but did ask Ramirez if he'd attended the game. After the brief lecture, and no argument from Ramirez, the police officer let him go with no further trouble.
I bet the cop told him to cut his hair and get a job too. Seems like a perfect time to play one of my favorite childhood Sesame Street videos. It relates to this story on multiple levels.

Ladycop: Respect, walk.

MannyTheTorpedos:ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?

ARE YOU TALKING TO MAAAAAAAY?

I would not be surprised at all to find Manny liked Pantera.

I never knew they had a Muppet Bum Phillips.

Deutsche Homophone Records is also the same label that released David Hasselhoff's albums in Germany.

Geoff Baker forgets to mention that Manny did all this in the 6th inning.

Manny thought this was how to get onto Jay Leno's Jaywalking segment.

@Matt T
Manny thinks those questions they ask on Jaywalking are too hard.

I always thought Manny was good at drawing a walk.
