I don’t know if you can make a stronger case for Major League Baseball to address its pace-of-play issue than this.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with the work of Mia Khalifa, the Jennifer Lawrence of the adult film industry right now. The most popular, highest paid and most celebrated porn star of her generation, and a huge Washington Capitals fan.
Well, here we had her Tuesday night, sitting in the box seats for the Washington Nationals game and ready, willing and able to bare it all for the masses. All she was asking for was a measly little 50,000 retweets and she would have delivered the goods. But she couldn’t sit through the game before the world could oblige.
Probably because the hitters kept calling for time, stepping out of the box, adjusting their gloves. While the pitchers were stepping off the rubber, circumnavigating the mound, rubbing down the balls. While poor Mia got too bored to wait it out enough for the rest of us to hold up our end of the bargain and left the ballpark.
Am I saying baseball needs a clock? Yes. Or for the umps to simply enforce the rules. Anything, really. Whatever it takes so that we can get back to the good old days where you could play nine innings in 2 1/2 hours and porn stars could stay engaged long enough to run naked across the field. Is that asking too much?
Now if we want to see Mia Khalifa nude, we have to go to one of about a million videos of her available for free on the Internet. Thanks a lot, MLB.
