White Soxenfreude: Hawk Harrelson Just Lost His Mind

Cubs Humor, MLB News and Rumors

There are many, many things to dislike about White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson. The lame catch phrases. The over-the-top homerism. The ignorance of a great many modern baseball concepts. Listening to him call a game is akin to getting your ear pierced, repeatedly, for three hours.

But, occasionally, he offers some enjoyment.

Like today, when he absolutely lost his mind during the White Sox/Rays game, when White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana was ejected for throwing behind Ben Zobrist (without a warning). Here’s the video – can you imagine Len Kasper doing this (maybe Bob Brenly):

In case the video is taken down, here’s my best dramatic interpretation via exclamations, CAPS, and the like:

“Watch out … Oh. OH! What are you DOIN’?!? He threw him out of the ball game?!? You’ve got to be bleepin’ me!!! (He actually said “bleepin’.”) What in the HELL are you doin’? What are you doing Wegner?!? You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me!!! That is so bad – that is absolutely brutal! That is unbelievable!!! I’ll tell ya what. They have GOT to start making guys be accountable. That is TOTALLY absurd! That just tells you he has … here’s an umpire in the American League that knows NOTHING about the game of baseball!”

And we all had a good laugh. By the way, I’m not sure Hawk was wrong on this one.
