Just a quick hitter this morning, as Team TPL is in the midst of packing up the bags and getting ready to head to Motown for H2H2.
First, let me say that if you didn’t read Disch’s piece on Todd Bertuzzi yesterday, do yourself a favor and get on it. I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment in the piece, which should come as no surprise to any of you given my Protuzzi stance since Day 1.
Once you’ve finished, do yourself another favor and hurry over to the Detroit News and check out the special piece they have about Bertuzzi’s interaction with a young man who suffers from cerebral palsy. It’s quite touching and shows a side of the ‘Tuzz that many of us have hoped existed ever since #44 showed up in Detroit. I’m not saying it justifies what happened with Steve Moore or anything like that. All I’m saying is that all those assclowns who boo Bertuzzi for no other reason than their own ignorance need to take a second, shut the hell up and get some perspective when it comes to Todd Bertuzzi, the person.
