You’re Messin’ With My Bread and Butter


The title of this article is a term that umpires heard when they ejected a player and they might be fined: “You’re messin’ with my bread and butter.”

When a pitcher throws a purpose pitch at a batter; if a team doesn’t give a player extra time to recuperate or their contract isn’t renewed, this term no doubt surfaces.

As you read the newspapers you can’t feel sorry for the modern day professional athlete as they are messin’ with their bread and butter.

An Indiana Pacer was suspended for a long period of time and a baseball player has a basketball injury (against his contract), which ended his stay with the team. A baseball player had a motorcycle injury that almost ended his career. A football player was suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. DUI’s are quite common and could lead to their deaths.

As you read about these incidents you wonder why these millionaire professional athletes are messin’ with their bread and butter. I guess a person that deals in syllogism can explain these athletes’ actions. I sure can’t.


That’s The Way I Saw It.
