Unfortunately...I got sidetracked along the way. And I blame the players themselves for that.
Last night, shortly after Derek Lowe finished up a gem of a start (he carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning), WXIA out of Atlanta posted the newly released footage of the Atlanta Braves pitcher's April 29 DUI arrest.
Kyle from over at Crossing Broad broke down the best exchange of the 20-minute clip. It happens about ten minutes in
Lowe: Once you say you play baseball, you're already guilty. I play for the Braves, so there you go.
Cop: I never heard anything about you playing baseball, you said you played golf tonight, today.
Lowe: I do, I play... Derek Lowe for the Atlanta Braves.
Cop: I don't know Derek Lowe from nobody. I don't even watch baseball.
Lowe: That's what I do.
Cop: I don't care nothing about baseball. You say you're a player?
Cop: What position do you play?
Lowe: Starting pitcher, for the Braves.
Cop: What's your name again?
I've got two questions.
One...who do you suppose was in the Camaro that Lowe was racing? And two, again, why don't these guys get drivers?
Oh, lastly, Derek Lowe..."quit yer bullshittin'".
