Douche of the Day! Daryl Keeton

[I started the "Douche of the Day! award yesterday and now see the error of my ways. . . the award is a full time job! -ed.]

Daryl Keeton, age 55 of Jefferson County, Ala., is facing felony charges after he assaulted a 20 year old umpire following his granddaughter's softball game. According to Yahoo! Sports, Keeton spent the game heckling the umpire, then followed the official to the parking lot outside the ballpark where he punched him in the face and bloodied his nose.

"A bloody nose most of the time will get you a misdemeanor, and that's wrong, but yeah, there's a law on the books that if you assault an official it's a Class C felony. That's a serious crime, and it should be," Chief Deputy Randy Christian of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Dept., told Jonathan Hardison of Fox 6 WBRC.

Keeton, who could face up to 10 years in prison for assaulting an Alabama sports official.

Way to go, Daryl! You are the Midwest Ump Douche of the Day!

This moron should be put in jail for one year in Alabama where the brothers will take care of his sorry candy ass. He should be fined (lets say $2000) and the money should go to the 20 year old umpire. Also, put on probation not to be aloowed to go to any games for a period of time and when he is allowed to go he must go to the game where the umpire he hit is scheduled to umpire. Then before the first pitch they should call him to home plate and in front everyone the 20 year kid gets to smack him with one good shot between his eyes.

NO WAY!!! I didn't realize there were soooo many candidates out there. However, it is interesting that a douche can be young or old, rich or poor, north or south. . . you just can't hide a douche! (o.k., that came out wrong)

Come on Pete. There has got to be someone that has been douchey recently. I mean its been over a week since the last one.

You could always do it as a Douche Of The Week kind of thing.
