Peter Gammons @pgammo 19m How great is this week when the two teams down 3-2 are pitching Kershaw Scherzer, Ryu, Verlander? Not even Ted Cruz can mess these moments
Geeze Peter...can't leave politics out of baseball? Gotta just get a dig in there for your Disney overlords? I loathe what ESPN has become. Just one giant PC factory and love fest for Obama and his cult.
Probably why I watch less pro sports today. I don’t even know all the MLB teams anymore. Getting sick of football too.
Politics infects all of it.
Is he Keith Olbermann’s understudy?
How edgy and gutsy (rolling eyes)
here’s a guy that was probably mercilessly teased in high school, and now he thinks he’s a big wheel because he can remember some baseball statistics. I mean really, is there really any talent to what these non-player analysts really do?
“legend”???....really?....”legend”?...who writes this stuff..
my hubby is a Seahawk fan.....but he only watched about 10" of the game tonite because he was cutting up his deer.....you see, I like men who actually Do something rather than watch something...
I know what you mean. When I moved to Asia, I worried about missing American sports. But not anymore, when I read such headlines: ‘NFL Kicker Punts for Gay Rights,’ ‘NFL Goes Pink;’ and ‘Obama Invites NBA Boston Celtics to LGBT Fundraiser.’
He, like lil Bobby Costas are dyed in the wool athlete asskissers and liberals millionaires, like the moron Mike Lupica.
Peter Gammons a legend? Is this from the Onion?
A Disney tool.
Recognize that all sportswriters are products of the same culture and atmosphere as the other reporters in the newsroom. Just because they happen to work in the "Toy Department" doesn't excuse them.
In most cases, Liberalism was a condition of being hired.
It is also a point of fact that, like their cohorts in the newsroom, baseball writers have no clue as to the game they're writing about. Serious baseball fans understand the game better than they do -- even though the writers are in the park, watching and writing, every night (Gammons, though, is the rare exception to this rule).
Gammon’s an idiot who still hasn’t dicovered that there are 25 other teams outside the American League East.
Sportswriters (there’s no such thing as sports reporters, since they all write what they’re told to) are writers that are too dumb to be regular reporters.
And buddy, THAT’S DUMB!
libs have to add politics to everything
same as the commies did in Russia.
Legend? Get the hell over yourself, sports boy. What a sewer this country has become with its idol worship.
All sporting events that I do watch, when I have time and inclination, I watch muted. Agitates the Mrs. but I refuse to listen to the morons.
The sports media is so tanked and so blindly PC (idiot athlete does xxx every night, abuse, kicked off team, etc.)
Then they get fat Libs like Bob Ley to throw the eternal blanket of “forgiveness” on his “Outside the Lines” show that constantly blames society for the ills of the rich athletes who squander fame and fortune...NEVER the LIBERALISM THAT GOT THEM THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE AND KEEPS THEM THERE.
To a liberal, EVERTHING is political. That’s why they win.
He isn’t much of a legend because I don’t even recognize his name, much less anything he’s supposed to ever have done.
I’ve avoided doing the Twitter thing for a while.
But I may have to start an account, just so I can directly respond to assh*les like this Gammon clown when they make stupid statements.
I never heard of this dude, either. And I don’t care to.
Gammons is a massive liberal from Boston. He frequently puts his liberal views into baseball conversations. When his face comes on the screen at MLB network or when he was at ESPN, I turned the channel. He is nothing short of an Obermann type. He is a liberal spewing, conservative, American hating pig.
The publicity department at ESPN.
Ha ha ha.. Esp who?
I’ve followed baseball my entire life as a Cincinnati fan, not a bad baseball town. Others on FR have followed baseball more closely than I have, and they don’t recognize this clown either.
And not even recognizing a name doesn’t bode well for the guy being a “legend”.
Maybe he played in the 1960 little league city championships.
Boycott the lot.
To make you break with the past, America's history and traditions much "CHANGE". So said Michelle Obama.
They've already torn down the historic ballparks. They've gheyed up the NFL.
I'm not surprised at his latest stupid hateful attack on conservatives. He just can't help himself.
Just STFU and report on baseball, Peter! Nobody is interested in your hate-filled opinions of Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, George W. Bush, and/or all Republicans and Conservatives!!
Next time I see Gammons at Fenway, I think I'll yell: "Hey Peter: Ted Cruz 2016, baby!"
Meant to include you in my post #30 above...
Mika and Peter Gammons: two reasons why I’m rooting for the Tigers.
I admit my husband and I are big MLB (and minor league baseball) fans, and NHL fans as well. You really don't hear this pro-liberal, pro-gay stuff on a daily basis. We hardly hear any of it at all, and we watch a lot of baseball, and attend several MLB and MiLB games a year.
Peter Gammons is a big Massachusetts hate-filled liberal. He's well known up here in our liberal neck of the woods (we live in the People's Republik of Connecticut). We never pay any attention to him.
But you can keep the two thugball sports: the NFL and the NBA. The NBA in particular is dead to us.
We'll watch college basketball, March Madness and all of that, but the NBA? It's like we don't even know it exists anymore, and we like it that way.
That’s why I watch soccer... They mostly use British announcers who don’t interject politics into things.
Well said, RetiredArmy. Exactly right.
Alas, I just can't get excited about soccer, no matter how hard I try...
Yes, we despise the cheater Lance Armstrong, but overall, it's an interesting sports event to follow. No political commentary from the excellent US-based announcers on the NBC Sports Network. So far, anyway...
Do it! I need to join Twitter as well... I keep meaning to do it, lol..
No, see RetiredArmy's post in #24. Peter Gammons is a massive conservative and Republican-hating liberal from Massachusetts. He just can't help himself.
I'm not saying Connecticut-based ESPN is totally innocent, but - believe me - this is how Gammons (and Keith Olbermann) REALLY think. If you call these comments "thinking"...
As it is, I have many blogs and things I follow and respond to... Twitter is just one more place to leave a digital footprint.
Which is why I haven’t joined it.
But stuff like this... it’s almost a moral imperative to reply directly to the douchebag.
Soccer is like any other sport. You have to be vested in a team to enjoy it.
A baseball game between two teams you know nothing about nor care about most would find boring, even if they love watching the World Series.
And in this country, where soccer isn’t ingrained in the culture, as it is in England, it does require an investment of time to learn about the teams, players, traditions and history of the game. But I guarantee, once you become vested in a team and follow them, the game provides all the thrills and drama of any other sport.
they really think they are cutting edge and courageous.
Wondering if anyone has been watching the new FOX sports channels? I’ve stopped watching SportsCenter..I watch the FOX show instead..those two Canadians are quite funny..and no more ever Steven A Smith..however, to give the devil his die..Outside The Lines is a superb show..
yup. As one who has watched great sporting events/games from 1972 - 2000, I could care less about all sports due to some of the things you posted.
Just a different type of social engineering today.
I do admit that I am listening to the Cards on the radio though. No more Direct TV (cost), just NetFlix and my radio.
Listening to a ball game on radio is pretty fun.
I also see his mug on MLB. The liberals think they won big over the Debt ceiling and they are feeling smug.
Sadly cherry, your husband is a dying breed in America. We are less a nation of doers anymore and more a nation of talkers and expectors. We are becoming a nation of “wanters” rather than a nation of “doers”. Rugged individualism is discouraged. Weeping and wailing encouraged.
I have heard his liberal garbage out of his mouth on ESPN and on MLB network since he has shown his puking face. I despise him. Refuse to listen to anything he might have to say. He is always sticking his POLITICAL views into a baseball conversation. Thus, I refuse to watch. I also have really cut back my watching ESPN. I don’t much like them in the first place, but now they are in on the rehabbing of Oberrman so that he can somehow come back like Jimmy Carter did. They are rehabbing him there. Then I saw his puking mouth on TBS the other night and immediately left the channel and did not come back till well after the game started. I’d rather watch re-runs of COPS than listen to any of those pukes.
