He deserved much better than this.

What’s next, the Dallas affiliate remembering Michael Irvin when he dies by showing his mugshot?

It was a sad day for baseball fans everywhere on Tuesday, as former Blue Jays and Phillies great Roy Halladay died in a plane crash off the coast of Florida. It was an even sadder day for whatever jerk at NBC 10 in Philadelphia decided to remember his greatness by showing him give up a barrage of home runs to opposing hitters.

Wow.

Personally, I’ll always remember Halladay as the stud who threw a postseason no-no against the Cincinnati Reds in the 2010 NLDS, but apparently the crew at NBC 10 thought of him more as the guy who served up taters to the Marlins and Indians. I mean, that first clip was a dinger he served up in a 9-0 ass pounding in the third inning against the lowly Marlins.

Damn, Philly. Booing Santa Claus and cheering while Michael Irvin is borderline paralyzed on the field is one thing, but revisiting a pitcher’s worst moments on the mound the day after he dies in a horrific plane crash? Shit, you people sure can be cold sometimes.
