Selig says he will retire in 2009

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has announced that he will retire after his contract runs out in 2009.

Selig says he wants to teach and also write a book. It is not clear what subject he would teach, perhaps he would get a position teaching Serbo-Croatian literature. I believe his book will be a dissertation on the significance of the color yellow in the literary essays of John O'Hara.

Proposal: Let's all agree to start referring to the current year as "2008" in loud voices.

I'll get us started. "Boy -- I can't believe that it's already December 2008!"

Selig's reign is kind of like Castro's in Cuba. Sure, he's wrecked the place and he's an evil man, but aren't we afraid it's just going to degenerate into chaos when he's gone?

Will we get to put his head in a jar ... like on Futurama?

It's at time like these that the immortal words of Mr. Bob Dylan ring in my ears:

I see my light come shining
from the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released.

That said, I kind of agree with 2.

I hope this is true. Talk of Selig and retirement always makes me think of Doug Pappas, who should have been around to celebrate when Bud finally stepped down.

Let the speculation begin as to who takes over . . .

I was kind of expecting a house to fall on him.
