한국 사람이 아니다
piney61 and maggiesox lead me to this interview with one Roger Clemens. Whom I now officially hate and who I hope never comes back to Boston.
Why? Oh, I dunno...a little thing called racism, I suppose. To wit:
Remembering back to a Japan-South Korea game in Anaheim, Calif., Clemens said he took clothes to a dry cleaners and was told he wouldn't get them back for nearly a week.
"They said, 'You've got no chance,' they told me," Clemens said. "I said, 'I'm going to get it tomorrow, right?' And then she goes, `No chance, we're going to the game.' So we couldn't get dry cleaning done out there, but I guess the neatest thing about them was there were about 50,000 of them at Anaheim Stadium, Korea and Japan.
Oh, thanks, Rog. "I couldn't get my clothes cleaned, but hey, it's kind of neat that those people were so into the baseball." I could go on and compare that comment quite easily to early 20th Century stereotypes involving mammys, watermelons, fried chicken and tapdancing that, once acceptable, are now abhorrent; how is this okay, just because it's about a different race?
Oh, right. It isn't. And hello, "Rocket." Welcome to my Hall of Lame. It's pretty much just you and Arod. Come in, sit down, and most importantly, shut up.
