Some observers have noted with surprise that prior to his record setting 132nd career ejection tonight, Bobby Cox had not been thrown out of a game in nearly two months. Some may suggest he was watching his step in the hopes of delaying the seemingly inevitable ejection for as long as possible; I submit that he was waiting until the birthday of Earl Weaver, possibly the greatest arguer of the last thirty years, to set the record. Sort of a tribute for Earl.
SI.com called this a "dubious distinction". Cox is embarrased. I am gleeful.
