Steve Lyons Fired: PC Terrorists Win

October 15, 2006 | Comments (0) | by Governor X

Dodgers' out of division road color man and weekend Fox network broadcaster was fired by Fox for what is being called a racially insensitive remark.

USA Today gives a recap of the incident & I'm still trying to figure out what was offensive about it.

The exchange about lost wallets between Lyons and likely Cubs manager Lou Piniella was bizarre sure, but didn't amount to anything. If anything, Lyons was suggesting Piniella had stolen his wallet, not this hypothetical spanish speaker.

We've all lost an interesting guy. Lyons' dry style with pop culture references left and right would be right at home here at Thunder Matt's. I now have to hope the PC thugs don't convince the Dodgers to let Lyons go.
