Josh Hamilton’s Wife Called The Cops Because Rangers Fans Were Going Buckwild Around Her Kids


Human interest story and recent free agent acquisition Josh Hamilton returned to Arlington Friday to face the team who took a chance on him when he was down on his luck. He went 0-4, was booed mercilessly, and, oh ya, his wife had to call the cops because fans were shouting profanities at her in front of her kids. Big surprise there. Josh was cool about it though, until he made it about God. Then it just gets confusing, which, given how he’s conducted himself, isn’t all that surprising that he’s a bit vexed on the whole “learning life lessons” front. From USA Today:

“She had to call security just because people were getting ugly…It’s cool to get ragged on about normal things,” Josh Hamilton said, but when you get a little swearing and jawing back at Katie, and saying inappropriate things, it’s a little different story.

Why don’t these ex-players just shell out the $3k for a luxury box and skip all this garbage? On one hand, sure, they want their familes to feel like normal people. But on the other hand, they aren’t normal people, and everyone knows who your wife is. You’re basically asking for a drunk guy to shout nasty stuff at her. Oh, and bring the kids, great idea. That’s like George W. Bush letting his family hang out at the protest of a French G-8 Summit. Lo and behold, Hamilton knew something to this effect would happen.

“They were saying personal stuff, stuff that was inappropriate with kids around. It’s a good lesson for the kids, just about people in general, and not putting faith in them, but the man upstairs.”

I’m sorry, but what kind of ass-backwards logic is that? Ok, so you put your faith in God and not people. Fine. But you put your faith in people acting like assholes to teach your kids to not put their faith in people? Seriously. It’s like having your kids grab the family cat by the tail to make the point animals can scratch you. Ya, if you’re asking for it! Besides, he had to know fans would recognize his wife. What, with her expensive box seats and haircut that looks like Storm from the X-Men cartoon — she’s hard to miss. Here’s a fan’s view of on of Josh’s hostile/futile at-bats.

    “…who took a chance on him when he was down on his luck”? Really?

    I think a guy who hits 19 HR and bats .292 in only 90 games with Cincinnate is not “down on his luck”. Just sayin’ .

    They didn’t get a luxury box during the first game because they were sold out. Also, Josh may be rich but he sure isn’t bright. >.<

    He then did body shots off a hooters waitress-then said the devil tempted him, but then Jesus saved him for the 100th time in his fake ass Disney wantabe life. This guy is the fakest dbag in sports
