Beauty Is in the Eye of the Ticket-Holder

As long as Peter Ueberroth is trying to clean up baseball's image, I suggest he fine the gross (pun intended) number of overweight umpires for "unsportsmanlike appearance."

The thought of facing another season with those fat derrieres blocking my view makes me cringe. Where do they find these guys? Have you ever seen an obese referee in football, basketball, soccer? The commissioner should dock these guys $10 for every pound they're overweight and donate the money to the poor.
