Welcoming The Weekend With Brockmire


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

You made it! It’s finally the end of another work week. Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is just sitting at home doing nothing. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a “you” problem.

While what happened with the Cincinnati Reds announcer was not funny, it made me think of something that was. While old boy Thom was reading his bullshit apology about how what he said did not reflect the man he was today, like it was some sort of tweet we dug up from his teen years instead of something he said an hour ago, he decided to interrupt this nonsense by calling a Nick Castellanos home run. Of course, I immediately thought of this video.

I won’t go into any of the serious stuff regarding this story because that’s not really what I do here. There are many others at this site or other places that are much smarter than I am for that kind of substance.

Again, one of these sucks and one is played for laughs. One shines a light on how there are still people who think in terms of slurs and bigotry while the other is just a funny bit from a comedic actor about his wife cheating on him. Just watch the video. Or don’t. It doesn’t really matter. I don’t get anything from the YouTube views. You’re already here, thats all that matters to me. Those sweet sweet page views.

The show this is a part of is criminally underrated as well. Go watch that too. Or just spend your day clicking through all of my posts over and over. I can’t tell you how to spend your time. Do as you please.

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
