what percentage of the US population knows who Chris Kattan is without the benefit of Google?

Probably a greater percentage than those that know who David Ross is. He was a really big part of the Will Ferrell era SNL and has been in movies. Baseball players pale in comparison to actual TV/Movie celebrities.


oh absolutely. David Ross certainly isn't a star outside of this board. I just saw Kattan and thought it was hilarious that he was a movie/tv star by their standards.

I'm not sure I'd say he was a huge part of SNL. He was on SNL with a lot of people that went on to have great careers and got to star in a movie with Will Ferrell. But most people wouldn't recognize his name until they saw his face.

of course, if you're more famous than a pro bull rider, i guess you qualify for DWTS

At the risk of being "that guy", I'll say it: I'm sick of David Ross. I don't begrudge him any way to make money or get more famous, good for him, but I really just want the season to start so I don't have to hear about this crap anymore. The Cubs are already becoming the 85 Bears. I wouldn't trade the title for anything, but I didn't expect to be sick of any part of it THIS quickly.

What makes you think that when the season starts we won't have to hear about this crap anymore?

The 85 Bears are pathetic because of their "we were tougher when" mentality and the fact that they were a one and done team that acts as though they were a dynasty, and dirtballs like Hampton, McMichael and Ditka are at the forefront.

Too each their own I suppose. But I see no similarity to the 85 Bears. The Cubs won the WS 4 months ago. And Ross is a super nice and funny guy, reaping the rewards and momentary fame that comes with success. All the power in the world to him. It will be gone soon enough.

Pretty much, and at the same time if it bugs you or rubs you the wrong way I don't think it's all that hard to ignore whatever David Ross is doing in off the field stuff.

yeah, if you don't follow him on twitter or instagram it seems pretty easy to ignore.

or maybe you are separately a dancing competition show fan and are afraid of losing cubs relationship apete and independent apete.

Not when every thing he (or anyone else does) off the field is retweeted and/or commented on by every single baseball writer/blogger/teammate.

And, again, I'm OK with him getting as much money as he possibly can get, particularly because he's nowhere near as rich as most of his teammates were or will be shortly, but "Dancing with the Stars" and playing with the Harlem Globetrotters? Who really gives a horsefeathers?

So just scroll/swipe right by any articles/tweets that mention David Ross in your timeline, even on a "busy" David Ross news day there's what maybe 10 tweets about him? It takes less than a second to scroll right by a tweet.

A lot of people or he wouldn't be invited to do this stuff. I, for one, enjoy it. I like seeing nice guys get these opportunities instead of talented horsefeathers.

you can choose to ignore that stuff if you so desire.

i don't care if any 2016 cubs player decides to shill huggies, depend adult diapers or slinkies at this point: they've won the world series and let them reap the rewards for doing so. rather david ross be on dancing with the stars than turn full curt shilling and start spewing hate about immigants.

The Cubs aren't winning the right way. You're supposed to just hand the trophy back to the commissioner and go right back to practice..
