Mets Broadcaster Commits Thought Crime

The San Diego Padres' massage therapist Kelly Calabrese was reportedly "flabbergasted" to hear that New York Mets broadcaster and former star Keith Hernandez responded to seeing her high-fiving a player in the dugout by remarking that women "don't belong in the dugout."

When confronted, Hernandez compounded his crime. "I won't say that women belong in the kitchen, but they don't belong in the dugout," he said, then laughed and continued, "You know I am only teasing. I love you gals out there — always have."

Unamused, SportsNet New York issued a statement:

Keith Hernandez made inappropriate comments regarding the presence of a female massage therapist of the San Diego Padres who was in the dugout. We immediately addressed the issue with Keith and reprimanded him, and he publicly apologized during Sunday's game.

Others lined up to express their self-righteous horror at Hernandez's incorrectness, including Calabrese herself and Padres chief executive officer Sandy Alderson. But since Hernandez apologized, a burning at the stake will not be necessary.

Of course women belong in the dugout. Where else would you take them to make-out? 'Inspiration point' only offers so much inspiration before you need a change of scenery. Dont forget to play side one of Zepplin 4.

the better question is, why would a woman actually WANT to be in a dugout. All of us guys have played ball and hung out in a dugout, the language there is well, "guylike."

Maybe she's a bulldyke or something? Who knows?
