A couple of WTF comments

Tampa Bay Rays president: "nobody in the history of the franchise had done anything to be worthy of (throwing out the ceremonial first pitch)"

Barry Trotz, about the first black player to make Nashville's roster in its history: "Joel Ward made the hockey team on merit"

Merit, as opposed to what? Affirmative action? Curiosity? I guess with the whole Tootoo carnival side show marketing (OMG, he eats raw meat!) they are very excited about having another "different" person around?

slkajdf Affirmative action hockey. FAIL.

I just don't get that. Is there really a need to state that black people are people too?

Tampa Bay Rays president: "nobody in the history of the franchise had done anything to be worthy of (throwing out the ceremonial first pitch)"

No one? Really? Not even Wade Boggs, who got his 3000 career hit in a Rays uniform?

Barry Trotz, about the first black player to make Nashville's roster in its history: "Joel Ward made the hockey team on merit"

Are people saying this player only made the roster because of "affirmative action", and Trotz felt the need to clear things up? Or - is he just spouting off in crazy old man fashion?

I just thought it was a hilarious way to phrase it. It's just one of those things that generally people try to doll up to sound less pathetic. :P

Well, I don't know what prompted him to say that, but is there really anything that justifies what he said?

Trotz is such a fucking moron.

Why is he not gone yet? :( Why is that franchise not gone yet? :(
