If Secrets Were Safe. . .

comment I recently made over Jane’s blog about the thought of
possibly a confidentiality agreement between players, managers and the
like following the Torre spill [not ever gonna happen, but still…] got me thinking about the security of
secrets these days… What exactly would this country be like if all secrets were safe huh? Here’s what I concluded:

If secrets remained secrets in America:

The words “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”, spoken by this man, would not be something to laugh at:


There wouldn’t be signs like these:

or a ball in the Hall of Fame with an actual asterisk on it like so:

Plaxico wouldn’t be Cheddar Bob [If you’ve never seen 8 Mile… *shaking my head*]

People would still think it was normal for Mark to look like this:

No one would know that this guy was a smart man [until he got caught]:

Tim Donaghy.jpgWe wouldn’t have found out that this guy isn’t actually a perfect angel:

joba.jpgHe’d still have his job:

eliot spitzer.jpgHe’d still have his wife… or not:

a-rod cynthia.jpgThis man would be just a guy with bad hair and an unpronounceable name:

In closing, should secrets remain secrets?… Nahhhh.
Not that the proposed confidentiality type agreements were ever going to happen, but if they did, can you say: BoOoOo.

    8 MILE!

    I do have a friend named Cheddar Bob who shoots himself in the leg with his own gun
    I did get jumped, by all six of you chumps

    I’m still standin here screaming F the real world, et cetera.

    Anyway, you’re totally right on this one as always. Screw hiding secrets…

    Funny post, V. That picture of McGwire makes him look….well, not normal. I think it’s almost impossible to keep a secret these days. Stuff just gets out. I struggled with this when I was writing my book. (Should I tell this story about this person? Does it add anything or just make me look mean-spirited?) I think our public figures will always be scrutinized and should be. And that includes baseball players. I vote no on confidentiality agreements on the Yankees, that’s for sure.

    Julia – Ehh, I don’t think I could support it at all… unless I were the person with something to hide, but since that’s not the case.. let it all out! Lol.
    EJ – Lol, ahh, that movie was good. Eminem is siick.
    Neal – Yeah, who would want to live in America is if were like that? Lol.. & thx.
    Jane – I know right? Mark looks like the Hulk there.. and yes, scrutiny is such a beautiful thing.. unless of course you’re the one being scrutinized, but whatever lol.. either way, no secrets!

    Secrets are what make our lives (aka baseball) interesting, and it gives Mr. Stewart and Mr. Colbert something to talk about. I just call him Blago for short… I don’t even want to TRY and spell his name. Great look at all the secrets!!
