Speaking of sports, Mets 2nd baseman Daniel Murphy took flak from WFAN talk radio commentators because he took two days of paternity leave last week when his wife gave birth to the couple's first son via C-section. Murphy missed the first two games of the season, against the Washington Nationals.
The free advice that was offered by the radio d-bags included: he shoulda scheduled the c-section for before the season, and he shoulda hired a nurse. Major League Baseball rules allow for three days of paternity leave, which is basically nothing, but is also three days more than most jobs in the US.
UPDATE As Seth the grown-up rightly points out, apologies also ensued, and this is now a learning moment for most if, not all. I'd still point out that three days of paternity leave is crap, but I'd also suggest that baseball players aim for the off-season when they swing for that conception fence.
