Ken Griffey, Jr., the Mariners/Reds/White Sox/Mariners outfielder, who took a sh-t on his Hall of Fame career by getting injured every f-cking year, has endured yet another embarrassment.
Similar to the incident earlier this month in Seattle, where he missed a pinch hitting opportunity by falling asleep in the clubhouse, Griffey, Jr. missed his cue to accept his Hall Of Fame award by napping in the audience. His snoring interrupted a speech in his honor given by Bud Selig, the useless Commissioner of Baseball, and Ken Griffey, Sr. (No relation.)
Griffey, Jr. was a lock for the Hall of Fame, even though injuries caused him to miss games in 1989, and in 1994, and in 1995, and in 1996, and in 2000, and in 2001, and in 2002, and in 2003, and in 2004, and in 2005, and in 2006 when he famously broke his wrist wrestling his 7 year old daughter. No, really. That really happened. And in 2008.
But 2007, that was an injury free year. But he sucked.
At the Hall of Fame ceremony, once Griffey, Jr. was awakened, he walked to the podium, was handed his Hall Of Fame Trophy, and promptly broke his hand while waving the trophy over his head. A team of doctors, who follow Griffey, Jr. around at all times, were able to set the hand quickly.
Griffey, Jr. retires with 630 home runs, placing him at number 5 on the list of all time home run hitters. He also has 184 stolen bases, 10 Gold Gloves, and none of his original limbs or joints.
