I'm surprised that nobody has jumped up and called the "Jalapeno or Wasabi?" commercials racist.

Those commercials are pretty damn cool, but UIC Jason isnt here anymore to tell us when we are being racist and insulting people.

Maybe that's because there is nothing racist about it. However, I think they are a bit incorrect. Jalapeno and Wasbi are metaphors for heat, which Shingo doesn't throw. :wink:

Yeah, it doesn't really make sense.

I know I as a living jalepeno am deeply offended. Can't a pepper live his life without ignorant comments from "superior" fruits and vegetables?

Maybe Brooks answers to the powerful and secretive Wasabi Marketing Board.

The commercial also says "either way you will get burned" so even though Shingo doesn't throw "heat", he will still "burn" you. Unless you are an Indians batter...

I know that, but knowing there's a lot of idiots out there that would make it a racial thing.

More on the commercials.

Those ads have comic gold written all over them. To wit:

The ad campaign will mingle live game footage with staged bits and a few skits with players. One of the scenes, sources said, has Rowand dying in the outfield with Jermaine Dye and Podsednik delivering the straight line, "At least he was trying." Meanwhile, Rowand has an out-of-body experience in a CTA L car.

Did anyone else notice that the director confirmed they are going to take shots at the Cubs? Can't wait to see how THAT goes over:cool:

And swipes at the Cubs? "They're coming," Stevenson confirmed Oh boy...here we go. :smile:

I really doubt it. There is nothing racist about associating a food that is commonly served in Japan with a player actually from Japan (or a south of the border food with players south of the border)

This is a little different from the chop-sockey gong. However, that's really not a big deal either. I'm glad the anti-pc's are jumping up and calling out the pcer's before anyone in the world has said anything.

Props to WSI poster 2x4 for his quotes in both the Sun-Times and Trib today.

I think the gong was the last straw for UIC Jason.

IIRC, it was jeremyb who hated the gong and had the asian girlfriend to validate his righteousness. UICJason hated all of us in general for not agreeing with him.

I only was upset when Stockdale was factually incorrect with his racism. Stating Kemosabe as a nickname for Shingo...

I love the Shingo one where at the end, the Oakland hitter hits a comebacker to Shingo to end the game, and the A's hitter falls on his knees out of frustration, it looks like he's bowing down
