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.
