I saw this earlier today, and it seemed so minor, it barely registered on my own (usually hyperactive) radar. He's way more popular on the show than Ana Lucia and Libby COMBINED, plus it wasn't a DUI. I doubt the big wigs will even reprimand him.
"Fun" Fact: Triple A becomes the eighth cast member to be cited for various driving violations in Hawaii (Ana-Lucia, Libby, Sawyer, Charlie, Boone, Steve, and Michael.)

Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005. Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor! Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain. Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!
Agreed on the point about sportswriters on TV. The thing is, when TK and Wilbon do the exaggeration and shouting, it's all done light-heartedly and you can tell they're having fun with it. Most other guys who do that come off as jackasses.
