Indiana’s Governor Fancies Himself a Comedian

Joe McConnell, the retiring play-by-play man for Purdue was awarded the Sagamore of Wabash by Indiana governor Mitch Daniels, which is the highest honor the Indiana governor can give to someone. During the ceremony Daniels paid his respects to McConnell saying that “I’ve always thought he had one of the great voices anywhere in sports.”

Then, Daniels (left) told the assembled audience that in fact he wanted to give out TWO of the award. “Because it’s for wisdom and judgment and benefits to the state of Indiana, I did give one to (New England Patriots coach) Bill Belichick,” referring of course to the failed 4th and 2 play that lost the Patriots/Colts game for New England.

Wop Wop Wah.

Stick to governing.

Irish Tenor “I Was Too Stupid With my Mouth.”

ronan-tynanAt Yankee Stadium during the 7th inning stretch Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan’s voice comes over the public address system to belt out “God Bless America.” As a means to fuck with the opposing pitcher (and for special occasions) Ronan comes in person and milks the song for about 35 minutes. He was supposed to come in and sing it at tonight’s ALCS game 1 but his silky mouth got him in trouble instead.

While in his apartment building he bumped into a real estate broker showing an apartment on his floor, “Don’t worry they are not Red Sox fans,” the broker told him.
“I don’t care about that, as long as they are not Jewish,” he responded. The pediatrician who was looking at the apartment, Gabrielle Gold-von Simson was astonished and asked, “Why is that?”

According to her, Tynan retorted that other Jewish women had looked at the apartment previously and they were “scary.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

He of course, claims that he was joking throughout but as Gold-von Simson told NBC – New York, “I didn’t know him at all so how could I take it as a joke.” She did however get one of the weirder apartment hunting experiences ever.

To show that he isn’t anti-Semitic, Tynan pulled out this classic quote: “I’m not anti-Semitic and I have never been in my life. There are three members of my band that are Jewish.  And I love them like brothers.  I call them my brothers from another mother.” So that settles it right?

Even though he’s not anti-Semitic Tynan has apologized and agreed to make a donation to the NYU hospital the good doctor works at and she is willing to accept his gestures, “Absolutely,” she said. “It was a sincere apology.”

“It’s something misfortunate,” Tynan said, “I was too stupid with my mouth.”
