White Sox Announcer Again Critical Of Umpires - RealGM Wiretap

White Sox television announcer Ken "Hawk" Harrelson went on a rant about home-plate umpire Lance Barrett on Saturday.

Harrelson sounded off after Barrett ejected Chicago catcher A.J. Pierzynski and manager Robin Ventura for arguing the strike zone.

"I'll tell you this is absolutely ridiculous Matt Jones Jersey ," the announcer said on the broadcast. "This is absolutely ridiculous."

"Lance Barrett has just stunk the joint up is all he's done. That's all he's done."

Harrelson was reprimanded by commissioner Bud Selig earlier in the season when he voiced his displeasure on air with home-plate umpire Mark Wegner on May 30.

There’s something quite comforting about wearing a woolly hat, even when you don’t really need to wear one. Of course one of the redeeming features is its ability to help retain body heat and keep you warm, especially as the head is supposed to be the area of the body that contributes the most to heat loss. However there are many people who have absolutely no need for special clothing to help maintain correct body temperature, yet still opt to wear a woolly hat. For those people the different reasons for wearing this long-established favourite fall into several camps. Firstly there are the fashion-led wearers Brandon Scherff Jersey , the people for whom the simple woolly hat is a strong statement of style, an indication of lifestyle or a sign that you have certain brand preferences. If you are influenced by peer pressure then many, especially young people, may feel the need to comply with the group by wearing something readily accepted by others. Brand is important here with a hat from one manufacturer Ziggy Hood Jersey , although exactly like another from a different brand, perhaps not quite cutting it in terms of kudos. And brand here seems to hold more sway than actual cut or colour, with certain brands able to roll out any kind of design and find them being accepted, even sought after by those who like to form woolly hat collections. Surfers Nate Sudfeld Jersey , Skaters, BMX riders and other youth-orientated sports leo attract their fair share of Woolly hat wearers, although in those circle they prefer to refer to them as Beanies.

Then there are those who find the woolly quite a pleasing item to wear as it brings with it a certain feeling of security. Wearing a hat of any type can offer a level of protection to the head, regardless of it’s construction or material. Perhaps it’s because our heads feel vulnerable when exposed and just wearing any type of head gear provides a perceived level of protection. The woolly hat is easy to wear Kendall Fuller Jersey , lightweight to carry and with its full head covering, makes you feel enclosed and sheltered from the elements.

Of course the wooly hat also acts as a form of covering for one’s hair, and a perfect shield for anyone who may find themselves short on time of a morning to make their hair acceptable. Perhaps you are just nipping out to the shop or out to post a letter and a quicker alternative to fixing some wayward locks is to quickly grab the nearest hat and cover everything up. In this case almost anything will do, but the wool hat is the perfect answer Su'a Cravens Jersey , providing almost complete cover, yet looking good too.

As a functional item of clothing, the woolly hat has been used for hundreds of years. The intrepid Antarctic explorers like Shackleton, many of whom could almost owe their lives to items like woolly hats DeSean Jackson Jersey , have long appreciated their heat retaining abilities. In sub-zero temperatures where cold and wet conditions could quickly threaten lives, the natural abilities of wool as headwear material were put to perfect use. These were the days before technical man-made fibres had been invented and wool was by far and away the best material for keeping warm in cold climates. Even now though, when we have all kinds of scientifically designed materials available, very little matches wool for all-round protection Ryan Kerrigan Jersey , comfort and ease of manufacture. Perhaps that's why many expect the woolly hat to remain a favourite for hundreds of years to come.

Such is the acceptance of the simple woolly hat that you will find examples of them being worn in all kinds of situations and by all generations. Parents will be ready with a cute, white version to transport new-born babies home from the hospital, children will put one one for the journey to school (and may even find use for them as goal posts at playtime), while others will yearn for a version in the colours of their favourite football team. Fashion versions come to the fore for teenagers Josh Doctson Jersey , both boys and girls findi.
