: mauthedog's link on Joe Buck
, It said this:
"But Buck said a couple of things Thursday night during FOX’s broadcast of the Patriots-Falcons preseason game that made me scratch my head. Before New England quarterback Tom Brady took the field for the first time in the first quarter, Buck uttered: “And now the dreamy Tom Brady will take over for the Patriots…”
Granted, I get that Buck was playing off the notion that women think Brady is a good-looking guy. He even emphasized “dreamy” by holding the “e” longer than the rest of the word while enunciating it (i.e. dreeeeeeeeamy).
But later in the game after sideline reporter Pam Oliver interviewed Falcons’ tight end Tony Gonzalez about his eating strict regiment, Buck dropped this on the listening audience:
“Well we know this, he’s a good looking guy, he’s well-spoken, he’s been in the league forever, he has the best stats of any tight end in the history of the position, but he’ll never be a part of the media because he would always eat alone.'"
Look ALL, As I've stated on this very forum (First-Jesus, how many Gay Threads ARE there?)- Anyway, As I've stated here before- One of my best friends back in HS inevitably told my he was gay, And man-It hurt me bad when he told me that I was the last friend he revealed this to, after I apparently made some derisive anti-gay comments, as an id!ot & senseless juvenile (ya know, High Schooler)...
So man, I am now SO far liberal in my views later in life... I sorta follow a W.B. Yeats line like scripture: "The worst are filled with passionate intensity, while the best lack all conviction." As I've lived it, It has often appeared to me, That the most harmful, mean, destructive, and here-Intolerant People, SEEM to KNOW what IS right, what IS wrong...like the freakin' black & white, set-in-stone & absolutely correct Laws of Man & The Universe Have been handed down personally to them, sheez. While other, see the world & the people in it, as greyer and greyer shades based seemingly on a zillion factors & contingents at play per situation & per individual.
So sorry people, I wanna keep this thread lighthearted; Don't wanna get in a match of righteousness on politics OR here: sexual preference... So perhaps, We should keep this case specific. HERE: Joe Buck, Buck's Comments, & maybe Buck's Outlet (for lack of a befitting term).
Maaaaan, I don't give 2 sh#ts IF Joe Buck's gay or not. F' it, IF Buck's gay-Good for him. Heck, lol-I don't even care IF Buck's a gay football announcer?!?But da dude's GOTTA realize (as that original article makes mention) Football's target audience of for the greater part-Straight Males searching for an outlet for their blood lust, ya know?
So HERE is the smallest, & most basic rule Joe Buck should go by:
O.k., Buck- ONLY 1 homoerotic comment per broadcast... I mean, I can do it all day long, because I have tattoos, shave my head, wear sleeveless T's, and am NOT gay AND I am NOT Nationally Televised, BUT YOU pal, I mean- what is that in the picture from that above Web-Link? A freakin' silk, collared, black long-sleeze evening shirt...I don't even OWN anything that LOOKS like that, fella! Man, sheez, There ALREADY is talk'a you bein' gay, so EITHER just come the heck OUT with it, or not! Man the he!! up here! Also, you Are Rail-Thin, Got a picture perfect wave hair cut that has all the relevant hair products to keep it in place, AND Oh My FREAKIN' God- What IS that in your bar drink!?! Huh? With Q's on your sexuality, You had BETTER answer that it's some sorta imprint on the glass itself, Because THAT is the largest piece of fruit in your drink I have EVER seen!
So in the end, I don't care pal, Heck- I LOVE throwin' certain people off, with "His #rse looks Sweet," Comments, but my target audience is 43 people on a BDC Board, yours is 43 million (some of them still don't like women or black people voting, ya know?)...minor difference. And Joe- Dear Lord Above- Man Up, 1 Gay Comment per broadcast, And drink a Beer, or something on the rocks here and there, o.k.? Change your shirt too...
Boy, I really lived up ta Yeats on this one...sheez.
