Iraq my brain on subjects like this.
Sometimes I think my thinking is a little wopped?

Ukraine your neck around a little, eat a french fry, and the next thing you know your mind is russian around so bad your sure its probably got a big chink in it!

Hey, speaking of chinks . . .

What if a baseball player had hit a giant chink into one of Froemming's baseballs and he uncontrollably blurted out in front of all the fans, "Look at the fucking chink in this ball!

Does the swearing intensify the racial slur if indeed it is a racial slur at all?

Think I'll nip this in the bud.

No, your not creepy dude, your readers are! Loved the Jello Biafra post when the shuttle went boom boom!

1 - I say yes, he could have just left it at 'stupid bitch' but obviously thought adding Jew was extra derogatory

2 - yes - see above

3 - yes - it was in my local paper

4 - yes

5 - no

I laughed when I saw it because sometimes these things are either unintentional or misinterpreted or just concocted smears but this one was clearer than most. I've never understood MLB's ability to find so and promote so many screw ups and just plain horrible umps but they're somehow able to do it.

Isn't the bigger controversy here that a Major League team like the Dodgers can hire umps in the off season for cush jobs? I mean, talk about impartiality compromise: A guy's on the Dodger Blue payroll a few months, then supposed to call out runners or hitters in a clutch playoff game a few months later. That sounds like the appearance of a conflict of interest, if not a genuine conflict. Or am I reading this all wrong?
