The “Selig Experience” attraction opens this week at Miller Park
Yes, we have what is more or less a theme park experience paying tribute to a car-salesman-turned sports executive. Both industries, by the way, which are subject to either explicit or defacto monopolies and cartel-esque arrangements, ensuring financial success for anyone lucky enough to be accepted into the cartel. Oh, and let us remember that being in a legal cartel wasn’t enough. Selig masterminded an illegal restraint of trade in the collusion cases of the 1980s, too!
Which leads us to this:
Sure you can. You can say it about the Rays, Diamondbacks, Rockies and Marlins, expansion teams which would not have existed if Selig and his fellow owners did not require hundreds of millions of dollars in expansion fees to pay off the judgments levied against them for the collusion racket.
But yes, let us celebrate this captain of industry with a theme park exhibit. Like it’s Disney World. Which would be awesome if they sold Bud Selig ears. I’d wear those all the time.
