Apparently a comment that questions Scrabble as a legitimate sport is found to be offensive and warrants deletion.

Tigers Win 3-1 in World Series Game 2

Nice try, but it's the jobs that are being outsourced, not the products. Otherwise we'd have a whopping trade surplus and everybody wins! Wow! Thanks for the economics lesson Einstein, you must be great at parties.

"TIGERS ARE IN THE WORLD SERIES THEREFORE THEY'RE THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST TEAM OF ALL TIME AND EACH PLAYER ON THE TWENTY-FIVE-MAN ROSTER SHOULD RECEIVE A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE" And a mansion and a yacht and have buildings and bridges named after them and...........

Tigers Win 3-1 in World Series Game 2

From MLB's official rule book:3.02 No player shall intentionally discolor or damage the ball by rubbing it with soil, rosin, paraffin, licorice, sand-paper, emery-paper or other foreign substance. PENALTY: The umpire shall demand the ball and remove the offender from the game. In addition, the offender shall be suspended automatically for 10 games. For rules in regard to a pitcher defacing the ball, see Rules 8.02(a)(2) through (6). To put an end to all of the silliness: Since the umpire did not demand the ball nor remove said offender from the game, the umpire must have determined that the foreign substance was not foreign at all. The pinetar was not imported but rather (you guessed it) good ol' AMERICAN pinetar. It is good to see that not all of America's products are being outsourced

Barry Bonds hit 73 home runs and set the record. . Pete Rose passed Ty Cobb and set the all-time hits record. TIGERS ARE IN THE WORLD SERIES THEREFORE THEY'RE THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST TEAM OF ALL TIME AND EACH PLAYER ON THE TWENTY-FIVE-MAN ROSTER SHOULD RECEIVE A NOBELPEACE PRIZE" How does either of these rants apply to the Detroit Tigers winning 1 World Series game? Did somebody forget to take their medication today? Chill!

Tigers Win 3-1 in World Series Game 2

Listening to the conspiracy theororists regarding Kenny Rogers would have you believe that he was also spotted at the grassy knoll in Dallas in 1963. Apparently they have an axe to grind with their dislike of Kenny Rogers or, their favorite team is sitting at home watching the World Series like everyone else. Their only intention is to drag Kenny Rogers through the dirt, muddy his reputation and pinetar & feather him. The simple fact remains, Kenny Rogers pitched a good game and the Tigers won. I wash my hands.

Tigers Win 3-1 in World Series Game 2

The original story that was linked to this thread was a box score and summary of the Detroit Tigers winning game 2 of the World Series. Somehow, the thread got twisted into the "Kenny Rogers Show". The man pitched a good game and the Tigers won the game, end of story.

Tigers Win 3-1 in World Series Game 2

when I saw the score the first thing I thought of was that there is no way in the world that Kenny Freakin' Rogers was tossing up zeros in three consecutive games after July (let alone in October) without doing something very, very bad. Yeah, right.

2012 Summer Olympics Coincide with Ramadan

At a guess, because Mr. Bayatli (the correct spelling) is speaking from his personal understanding of Islam and not as a religious authority. Do a google search and you'll find quite a range of opinions on the subject of who must observe Ramadan, and how. Just as Mr. Bayalti (the correct spelling) opines a personal interpretation of Islamic belief, each Muslim athelete must also search within to formulate his/her course of action (no google search needed), if scheduling proves to be an obstacle.

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

Yeah, Steve Lyons made a stupid remark. Cause for reprimand? Yes! Firing? No! Pinella should be reprimanded for not knowing what a GED is, but not fired.

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

Apparently Fox was'nt happy with Lyons' broadcasting performance and Lyons' perceived comments only served as a convenient out. If a person listens to the audio of the exchange among broadcasters, it clearly shows light hearted banter between colleagues. If anyone out there wants to buy what Fox is trying to peddle, I know of a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in.

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

it means those people who feel an employee's opinion about appropriate forms of expression while acting as a representative of one's employer should count for more than the employer's opinion about said expression. Great double-speak!

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

There are, quite frankly, a lot of white people in the US -- in the world -- who are less comfortable discussing issues of racism than they are with allowing racism to go on without a word or a blink, just as long as it does it quietly and not in their face To label a race of people by means of personal perception is not only offensive and racist, but ignorant as well.

I think Pinella's comments were offensive to any group of people who lost their wallets on a Friday.

If you blow it on their shirt, yes. And that, figuratively speaking, is what we're talking about This would only serve to offend the handkerchiefs who immigrated to America seeking a better life.

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

These days, it seems a person can't blow their nose without offending someone, racially, ethnically or sexually. Fox can hire and fire whoever they wish, but for crying out loud, was Lyons' remarks worthy of a dismissal? I don't believe they were said with the intent to offend. Will crying out loud offend anybody?
