He just apologized on air (and had to call a Reds HR in the middle of his apology) then left the booth.

Damn it, this always happens. I think I'm gonna score, and then I never score. It's not fair.

I'll admit, most of my knowledge of him is when he does NFL games for Fox, but he's loving awful at that too and I hope this impacts his job there too.

He’s actually MUCH WORSE calling Reds games. Just insufferable as gently caress, much like his dad who people loved for some reason. Actually I loved his dads voice but that’s pretty much it.

He thinks he said a naughty word on TV and so he has to apologize to the guys who sign his checks. That’s how you know he’s a bigot that says this kinda poo poo all the time. He has no concept of the people who are harmed by language like that.

In his defense after begging for his bosses to not fire him, and touting his character references he at least didn't forget to apologize to those he offended, that's gotta be worth some points.

“I’m sorry to those I offended” is one of the absolute worst things you can say in an apology because it does not show any sort of understanding as to WHO you offended or WHY it is offensive to them.

Saddam Hussein is determined to get his hands on a nuclear bomb. He is so determined that he has made repeated covert attempts to acquire high-specification aluminum tubes from 11 different countries, even after inspections resumed, as there's a drive into deep left field.

Between Votto coming out hard for BLM, and now this from Amir Garrett, the Reds team seems to be pretty progressive (minus Trevor Bauer). Maybe they should get a broadcast team to match it.

Does that particular word have the same offenisve meaning in British English as American English? I know its means cigarettes over in England, but do the Brits also use it as a slur as well?

I listen to a english socer pdocast and there's a guy who calls cigs that particular word all the time and no one gives a poo poo

Hey Boston folks, since I haven't had to drive much in the morning how is the Toucher-less Toucher and Rich? From the little I heard its fairly decent with Wallach and Joe Murray, proving what I thought that Rich is the real creative one.

To be very charitable to this dude, there's a difference between knowing it's offensive and knowing that it means gay people should be burned to death.
