Certain words in the English language are over-used. Travesty is one of them.
I can’t stand when people frivolously refer to things, or events, as travesties. Travesties are bad break-ups. Travesties are romances that should have been but never were. Travesties are failed movies, with great actors, but zero screen play. Travesties, however, do not describe the inclusion of baseball’s most exciting player into an exhibition game that has no meaning.
Perhaps a pocket dictionary should be required reading for those of us with opinions.
