I'm not sure you're entirely alone but I'd guess you're close to it. I can't imagine any parent that I know would think twice about "dadgummit" or "BS." How many young kids are really even watching/listening that closely anyway?

Hawk is a polarizing figure and I know plenty of parents who probably don't want to listen to him for myriad reasons so maybe - maybe - there's a statistically insignificant number of households where kids are shielded from the Sox broadcast. But I highly doubt it's because they're afraid their kids might here an occasional "dadgummit" and more likely because they don't want to hear another Ted Williams anecdote.

Also, the B&B bashing cracks me up. Bernstein is a Sox fan and has spoken very favorably of Rick Hahn. Most of the stuff they spew is just schtick. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but sports talk radio is stupid anyway.
