this paragraph is great on so many levels i dont even know where to begin!
ah, another public relations hit for the blue jays
It occured to me that this statement may have been viewed as racist, i was just watching the game on the local dallas affilate and the announcers actually said (and toronto DID bill this game as "Korean Night"), the camera man panned around the stadium, I think half the fans really were korean, Id be pissed if i went to go see Park and he didnt play
That aside, why the hell would anyone get excited about Park -- he's not really your ideal national hero or anything. Thats kind of like me getting really excited that Eric Milton is coming to town.
And, whats up with EVEN HAVING "korean night", why dont we have "Whitey night," or "Illegal immigrant night" -- there's an idea, Jose Contreas pitches, free tickets for illegals
Maybe Ive gone to far in this post, so Ill be quiet now, the whole idea of "Korean night" seems mildly offensive to me though.
