There’s a small, light-on-the-details story in the Associated Press about some of the specific changes in the new collective bargaining agreement. Among some stuff about instant replay, a longer All-Star break and the opportunity for players to get private rooms instead of having a roommate during spring training, comes this little bit:

There’s also a ban on players getting tattoos with corporate logos …

People do that? Oh. Well I guess they do.

Hope it never applies to the media. I’d hate to have to pay to have that giant NBC peacock removed.  It’s in a sensitive area.
