White Sox’s Mark Buehrle on Michael Vick: “I Hoped He Got Hurt”
There are players in all sports that I don’t care for, various reasons why, but I have never wished injury on anyone. To me that is the true definition of a “hater”, because that is personal.
If you don’t like someone or disagree with things they have done in the past, that is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when you drop quotes like this by White Sox’s pitcher Mark Buehrle, there is something else bubbly beneath the surface.
“He had a great year and a great comeback, but there were times where we watched the game and I know it’s bad to say, but there were times where we hope he gets hurt. Everything you’ve done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen to these guys.”
I guess going to jail for two years, losing millions of dollars, tarnishing his legacy, being kicked out of the NFL and being vilified wasn’t enough punishment for Buehrle.
He wants him to break his leg or something because that would make Buehrle feel better. In my mind makes him no better than Vick.
Vick engaged in dog fighting and Buehrle is praying for someone to get hurt.
By the way if you have to qualify your statement with “I know this sounds bad”, you probably shouldn’t say the next thing you are thinking.
