I've been meaning to start a recurring feature like this for a while now (oddly enough, it was another dick catcher, Jason Kendall, that was my original inspiration). This will not be relegated to the worlds of politics, sports or baseball, but I have to make a concerted effort to think outside the asshole box, or Bush and Cheney will have a stranglehold on the award...
Here is Phillies catcher Mike Lieberthal going into the stands after a foul ball and swatting a little girl in the head with his big ole catcher's mitt, failing to make the play and then walking away without giving the girl a second glance. Yes he hits her. Yes, she's crying. And no, he doesn't even make the catch. What kind of a cold bastard steamrolls a little girl and then just turns around and picks up his mask...?
Runners-up? The umpire and firstbaseman also turn around and walk away, and the announcers continue to pretend nothing happened and "it scared her more than anything..." despite every replay showing Lieberthals glove clocking her right in the head. The ball is out of play now, you douchebags, would it kill you to apologize or pause for a second and see if she's okay? And Dodgers, what kind of a fucking fence is that? Who's brilliant marketing strategy was a deathwish section?
Nice job, Lieberthal you're the inaugural DOW.
