• Zingler Strikes Again!

    Posted by on January 13th, 2006 · Comments (3)

    Four months ago, I found a Zingler rant. Looks like he is still pissin’ and moanin’ about the Yankees:

    The Yankees sign Johnny Damon.

    King George’s empire was in such desperate need of starting pitching that they went out and signed Johnny Damon. They also made him cut his hair because they are all class, in that owner throwing public tantrums, hiring mobsters to tail players and wasting money like a drunken rock star kind of way.

    Turns out that he’s from Minneapolis. I suppose this is what happens to you when you live in a town where the baseball owner pockets all his money – you take shots at the other owners who spend. Sad.

      I’d love to remind this Zingler that his hometown owner offered a loan of several million dollars to the sitting commissioner of baseball and that it is quite possible that this loan was a quid pro quo in exchange for favorable treatment towards contraction and the automatic $150M buyout that would entail. But that’s far classier than anything the Yanks would do, right?

      God I pity Yankee-Haters.

      Zingler should move to New York. He’d get a job real fast at any one of several media outlets in town run by Yankee-haters. I daresay Zingler’s view of sports, as parochial as it is, would be a whole lot different if the media in the Twin Cities acted like those in NYC. Would a Twins-bashing Chris Russo hope to even exist as a radio personality in Minny? Would a Twins-bashing Murray Chass even get to type up box scores during the overnight shift? No, Minnesotans like Yankee-hating Jim Caple move to places like Seattle because they have to swarm over each other to fight for the job of “#1 Pohlad ass-licker” in order to pay their rent in the icebergs they call apartments in the Great White North.

      Well, Mr. Zingler, I would only add that Boston had such a backstock of centerfielders who also hit leadoff and personify the team, that they could afford to let Damon go. And add Theo for that matter…
