Redsock announcer makes ass of self... and yet Boston fans will deride The Master?

It's good to know that baseball's redneck heritage still exists in the fevered minds of people like Jerry Remy, a blowhard Redsock announcer who yearns for the days when players were white, corn-fed and Bible literate, and we didn't have people running around like soccer fans shouting "arriba, arriba!" and stealing positions from honest Rotarians. Last night, Remy - father of a convicted murderer - took it upon himself to rip Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees for needing an interpreter during a mound conversation, saying, "I don't think that should be legal."

If I said that, you would laugh. You would know I was mimicking a Gomer Pyle-minded elevator operator in a town without a second floor. And frankly, I don't think Remy has a second floor.  

John Sterling may be a Yankee homer and an occasional fool, but he would never say something so racially ham-handed and so ridiculously unprofessional.

Remy is an insular, provincial, and parochial asshole, highly typical of every Masshole who lives within the I-495 Beltway.

As you might expect, people who live in the area love him.

The same people who love our new President.

I'm with LBJ on this one.

The area is infested with racist townie assholes.

The worst part is theses ignorant assholes act condescendingly, as if they were special in a good way -- not in the extra special asshole variety.

If any of the non-white players walked into a bar in D'ah'chest'ah' without being recognized, they would receive the entire urban dictionary of racist slurs.

Is everyone alright? Chris Carter goes 3-4, should have been 4-4. I feel like something terrible is about to happen. Someone get Judge to a bomb shelter.

Tough sell saying massholes from Boston like Trump, area is deep blue. Doesn't change the fact massholes are walking trash bags.

I should confess that I have a particular hair across my butt when it comes to Jerry Remy.

In the mid 2000's, Miguel Cairo -- a splendid dough-faced utility man -- hit a home run that he thought was a triple or a triple he thought was a home run. I don't recall but it doesn't really matter.

He was standing on the field and the umps were giving him hand signals indicating he needed to go to a different base than the one he was on. Either due to language difficulties or the fact that he couldn't pick up on the umps' hand gestures, he stood there with a quizzical look on his face, beckoning them to make things clearer. Then he realized what they were saying and advanced to the correct base.

You should have heard Remy-the-shithead. NESN ran a replay of Cairo's confusion and friggin' Remy made fun of him during the replay. At the moment that Cairo's face registered that he understood what was going on, Remy condescendingly and sadistically said, "Yeah, yeah, that's it, move along now, move along" or words to that effect.

If the guy had been near me, I would have punched his motherfucking lights out.

Conservative, liberal, or indifferent as I or anyone else might be, you lose a little respect when you equate people questioning the use of interpreters on the mound with boneheaded caricatures of humanity screaming for Jim Crow and lynch mobs. Some people question things for different reasons than the set-in-stone liberal ones.

I still love the blog. Just saying it's something to keep in mind.
