Drunk driving is not a minor offense, losing your license for 180 days is a pretty big deal. I know there's a lot of people posting here who like the odd beer or two, but don't make light of what is a serious offense. Also don't always assume that there is a conspiracy theory, that the media is out to get LaRussa and that there are mitigating circumstances for LaRussa. After reading this thread all I can say is wow. I really expected more from you all.
You "expected more from us". Are you for frigging kidding me? Who the heck are you? Under whose authority do you have the right to pass moral judgement on not only Tony Larussa, but us? Something tells me your Sunday mornings are usually occupied. Am I right?
Do you know what the difference is between .080 and .093? About a third of a beer.
I'm sorry if the fact I think defending driving under the influence on a message board for all ages is irresponsible and somehow offensive to you.
Also, last time I checked we don't live in an Orwellian society, so I have the right to pass moral judgment on whoever and whatever I want, as do you. Differing opinions is what makes these message boards so interesting. However, I do think debating baseball stats is one thing but defending driving under the influence has no place here.
Finally, yes the difference between .08 and .093 may be little more than a third of a beer but you don't seem to take account of the previous four he most likely drank.
Oh, one last thing, I will be sure to pray for your sins this weekend.
