Yankee fans should refuse the "ice bucket challenge" unless people return to calling it Lou Gehrig's Disease again

Listen: If they poured a bucket over Gehrig's head during his great moment in Yankee Stadium, I'd accept the ice bucket challenge. But they didn't. And last night, in that stupid TV newscast, nobody bothered to mention the greatest Yankee first-baseman in history. No, all they talked about was the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, challenging each other to stand in front of buckets of water. This will somehow raise money to fight AL- I MEAN LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE.
Screw them. Last night, the TV sportscaster gerbil accepted the challenge. I didn't see him write out a check, though. He just let them pour icewater on him, for the sake of good TV. All the time, I was screaming, "LOU GEHRIG, YOU TURD, MENTION LOU GEHRIG!"
He didn't. What a stink pot of a season! First, we lose Cano. Then we lose CC. Then we lose Tanaka. Now, we're losing Lou Gehrig's Disease? Yeesh.
