A week of misogyny and homophobia in sports
today at 9:55 am
Dingbat. F** capital of the world. Distractions. Yellow shoes. Joe Biden is just Hillary Clinton with a smaller dick.
Those were some of the words we heard and read on various sports outlets in the previous eight days. Five times in a little more than one week.
Mark Grace. Thom Brennaman. Mike Milbury. Paul Tracy. Bruce Levine.
One right after another, after another. Naturally, after each incident comes a clumsy apology. The apology always sounds forced and desperate. Remember when a person shows you who they are, believe them!
You’d think someone would learn after hearing the outrage after one of these incidents, but almost immediately afterward, it occurs again. After Mibury offended Hockey wives and partners to accomplish the hat trick of offensive statements, I wondered who would join them on the Mount Rushmore of horrendous sports takes? It took only a couple of days for Tracy and Levine to climb that mountain. Now we only need to figure out who to leave off so it will be a foursome.
Hmmmm….maybe unlike the real Mount Rushmore, which Donald Trump desperately wants to join, we leave room for more….and a lot more. Because in spite of the deserved negative feedback from the past week, we know there’s more of this behavior coming….and sadly, expect it to be sooner rather than later.
So, who’s next?
