Michael Kay is insane

This exchange with a caller was bad enough, but it got MUCH worse



Kay: "... Why shouldn't I say it (that a pitcher is throwing a no-hitter or perfect game)? Tell me Jimmy. Why?"

Jimmy: "Because it's not baseball etiquette."

Kay: "... Don't tell me it's baseball etiquette. It used to be etiquette to have black people as slaves. ..."

He is so desperate to call attention to himself as he gets killed in the ratings by Mike and Mad Dog but he went over the line this time.

A guy should be fired or at least suspended without pay for comments like that.

In Kay's words... "see ya!"

He's one of my least favorite announcers, and his "see ya" home run call sucks.

Remember the radio broadcaster in San Francisco last year? How he called the Giants hitters "brain dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop" and he also said about Felipe Alou "his mind has turned into Cream of Wheat." I think the guy eventually got fired for those remarks. I remember Alou getting on Outside the Lines and saying that the broadcaster was "a messenger of satan.":o:

Pfft. He said it's not baseball etiquette.

He's got a good point though. It was etiquette to have black people as slaves. It was just the polite thing to do back then.

If Kay would have mentioned Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot's "etiquette" which killed over 70 million combined he would have nailed it.

Michael Kay = :dumbass: Your idiotic comparisons have nothing to do with the word etiquette.

THAT'S the one I couldn't think of (Godwin's Law). Thanks for freeing me up to think of something else.
