Well MLB.com has crushed yet another dream of mine

Well this sucks! I had a dream of owning a New York Yank’me jersey with “A-Roid” on the back but noooo…MLB censers will not allow it.
Darren Rovell reports in his CNBC Sports Biz column the MLB.com is banning various “user submitted” nicknames on jerseys such as A-Roid, A-Fraud and Jeter Sucks Steinbrenner Cock.
“MLB.com spokesman Matt Gould told CNBC that the league does not allow fans to personalize products with anything that is deemed inappropriate, derogatory or profane. Fans haven’t been able to personalize their jerseys on the site with the word “steroids” since 2005, but as of this afternoon, fans can get A-Rod’s drug of choice, “Boli,” on the back of jerseys. They can also get “Sucart,” the last name of A-Rod’s cousin, who has been part of the story.”
Is “Ron Mexico” or “I ♥ Madonna” OK ?
I love the Yankee fans who spend $80 on a replica (a replica!) Jeter jersey, with his name across the back, despite the fact that the Yanks have NEVER HAD NAMES ON THEIR JERSEYS.
Actually, wait. I do not love those people.
