Jim Bowden has had a cell phone for 30 years

Last week, I documented former Nationals GM Jim Bowden and his annoying tweets. Well, timing is everything in life, because I didn’t see this one coming.

I really don’t know where to begin. I suppose we can begin with the most obvious question: has Jim Bowden really had a cell phone for 30 years? I suppose it’s possible. According to Wikipedia, the AMPS analog mobile phone system was introduced in the United States in 1978. Therefore, a viable mobile phone would have been on the market when Jim Bowden began his career in the Pittsburgh Pirates media relations department in 1985, although its hard to imagine a low-level employee being issued one.

It’s more likely Jim Bowden meant 30 years of his contacts have been entered into his current phone. Why it was necessary to remind us he’s been in the baseball business for three decades, I don’t know. Nor do I know why he felt it necessary to tweet this message to over 60 thousand people when his hacked phone probably contains less than one percent of that number.

What I do know is Lastings Milledge and Nook Logan probably received a solicitation for penis enlargement this evening. I also know that Toma Ohka and Smiley Gonzalez’s former agent likely got a desperate plea for money from the deposed King of Nigeria. Finally, poor little Schottzie and Schottzie 2 were given an EXCLUSIVE webcam invitation with a SEXY teen.

Thankfully for the operation of the Major League Baseball tonight, most credible executives deleted Bowden from their phones a long time ago.
