Major League Umpire Jim Joyce was involved in yet another controversy yesterday when he told police that some short kid and his bigger brother started a fight near the older kid's school and both were taken in by police and suspended from school for the first month of the new school year.
Joyce became famous for blowing an easy call at first base that robbed Detroit pitcher, Armando Galarraga of a perfect game recently and a spineless baseball commissioner backed him up, even though every video showed that the runner was out.
"Detroit people get so little to cheer about, it would have been nice for Galarraga to get the perfect game". stated a man on the street that had been roughed up and robbed by a gang. "That Umpire, Joyce, sure blew it."
Meanwhile the kid that was arrested after being beaten up told the press that he was just walking home when about a dozen bigger kids jumped him and beat him nearly to death. "I went and got John my brother and we came back and the two of us beat them up really good."
"All I know is that I call them the way I see them", stated Jim Joyce. "When I got there, these two kids attacked that poor gang and beat them up so bad they had to untangle them when the police got here. It was those two criminals that were in the fault."
At the police station, a passing driver, MLB Commissioner, Bud Selig stated that he saw the two attack the gang also and backed up Joyce's statement.
