besides he wasn’t even wearing armor.....LOL
I say f*& you to Comcast all the time.....lol
“Tanaka is a Jap not a Chink. Leftists are ridiculous.”
LOL, post of the thread!
Rush would be proud, illustrating absurdity by being absurd.
And BRAVE, in this PC world. I’m proud of you!
It’s not racist. They are just WORDS!
ESPN wants to NIP slurs in the bud.
Chink in the armor is not a racial term.
Tanaka is Japanese.
This shows the left whether in sports or elsewhere are people from another world. They don’t even understand our English language. They should be ignored.
So who won the game?
I see what you did there!
I would have placated all the SJW, and used “crink”.
The racism lies in the observer that sees racism there.
Why I stopped being a fan of baseball.
This idiot Daily News writer is very niggardly in praising Ron Darling.
The Yankees won the game. But they lost me when in the first post game interview they brought out an interpreter to tell us what their catcher had to say to us Americans. Not giving a crap how many us citizens, combat veterans they’re insulting - deeply, I might add
Didn’t this same thing happen a while back? Same phrase by a sportscaster, same butthurt liberals offended by it. Guy should say its a commonly used phrase, get over it.
NOW if someone had said
There is a Nip in the air tonight and MR D. replied, Tanaka’s GGFather was hung for war crimes, maybe - just Maybe - they would have half a case here.
That said, remember the Redskins and the ‘Smurfs’ and H Cosell and his ‘Look at that little monkey go’ remark.
AND that was back when we ‘ALL’ had a bit of sanity...
Racist pot calling the kettle black
Thanks for the update. This is the extent of my interest in spectator sports these days. Checking the scores and standings. I know Houston are the defending World Series champions but cannot tell you the name of any player on their roster. It didnt used to be this way but for a lot of reasons this is where my interest level is now.
Be not a niggard of your speech. How goes t?
In the neighborhood where I grew up used to play a variation of “wall ball” and we called it “chink ball”. If you smacked the ball on your turn and it hit right at the crack where the wall and the ground met, it would usually bounce really crazily — you yelled “chink ball” and everyone was free to try and hit it for a point. Could get rough if you had a bunch of kids playing.
