But there is one disturbing takeaway from the article:
Bud Selig was born to be a friend. That's why they called him Bud in the first place. When school teacher Marie Selig brought Allan Huber home from the hospital, the first thing she said to her older son Jerry was this: "We brought you a little buddy."That's disturbing, because my son Carlo is usually called "Buddy" in my house for much the same reason. Lately we've made it a tad more elaborate -- I call him "Buddrow," mostly because it makes his mother laugh -- but I've never considered that he might actually wind up being known as Carlo A. "Bud" Calcaterra, one day because of it.
Parents: be careful out there.
