Oh Manny, Manny, Manny...what a tangled web you weave when first you choose to inject yourself with a hormone produced by embryos in the womb. Now that you've collided head on with a fifty game suspension, you probably have some extra time on your hands.
What ever will you do to pass the hours? There's always fixing the roof or collecting stamps, but X-Play's Jonathan Solin thinks you should fill your time with something noble and worthwhile: video games. Here are his suggestions to get you started!
X-Play Presents: Top 5 Video Games for Manny Ramirez
1. American McGee Presents: Bad Day L.A.
In this game, Los Angeles is overcome by numerous disasters. Manny can now add his name to the list. L.A. thanks you, Manny.
2. Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day
It takes a special kind of baseball player to get caught using performance enhancing drugs in baseball in 2009. Perhaps, Manny should work on his learning skills for a while. Fifty days should do the trick.
3. Midnight Club: L.A.
In this game, somebody from the East Coast comes out to Los Angeles and wrecks havoc on this great city. Manny should play this game, take in every street, every corner, every city, and know that a child is crying because his hero has let him down. Again.
4. Jackass: The Game
Do we really have to say it? Ya got caught, Manny. You dope! A-Rod laughs at you. Then he cries himself to sleep while staring at himself in the mirror, listening to Madonna’s latest album on his IPod. How did this become about A-Rod?
5. Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
Once again the sacred sport of baseball has been sullied by a fallen angel. Is anybody really surprised anymore? Thank you, Manny, for giving us the least shocking shocking story of the year.
For the Fans Bonus: NBA 2K9
Dodger fans, start playing this one and know that the Lakers would never sully themselves with such scandal. At least not this year
