UGH -- what a misuse of a great name!

The Wampum blog is a liberal blog and it runs what it calls the Koufax Awards.

Sandy Koufax was the greatest left-handed pitcher in baseball history (although the argument can now begin re: Randy Johnson after the Unit's '98-'02 run in the NL). He is decent, honest, aware of his past and his potential impact (see 1965 World Series, Yom Kippur issue) and generally apolitical. He's also the greatest Jewish sports hero in America.

But some liberal decided to run his name through the mud by naming a left-wing blogging award series after him.
