I thought one of the defining features of a capital is that there is only one of them. Take a stance, you coward!

Literally can't remember the last time I heard that word used. Bring all the bigots of all flavors out in the open, and shame them.

The only surprising part about this is that the slur he used wasn't a racist one.

This entire corona-cursed season is worth it if Thom Brennamen is fired forever and the last thing he’s remembered for is having to call a home run in the middle of his good bye apology.

I haven’t posted in a long time. What a bigot.

...I know this isn’t the main takeaway here, but can’t help but feeling schadenfreude considering his egregious announcing in the 2003 NLCS. What a horsefearhers bigot

A while back one of my managers was playing an 80s playlist over our store system before we opened in the morning. I had never heard the unedited version before, but Dire Straits - Money For Nothing, came on and I was floored when I heard that word plain as day in one of the lyrics.

This feels like another victory as a Cubs fan tonight. That horsefeathering guy sucks.

in their defense, they're essentially criticizing the usage of the word in that song

He wasn’t sorry for what he said, he was begging for his job. Hiding behind his religion and apologizing to Fox. What a douchebag.

Apparently, he was telling a story about being in San Francisco for the 1989 Series right before the commercial break.

The clip of him calling the home run in the middle of his apology is hilarious.

Run this tape on a loop on his tombstone.
