Can You Feel The Pain Of This Seahawks Fan Whose Sexist Joke Made At A Female Bills Coach Failed To Land?
Uhhhh, HELLLLLO! Is this thing even on? Jesus guys, you can't even give the poor bastard a pity laugh. He's been working on that joke for at least the time it took him to polish off two Tall Boys. Can't you find it in your heart to give him a golf clap and acknowledge the liquid courage it took to walk down 15 rows and heckle a woman for being a woman from the safety of the stands? I thought the '12th man' was supposed to be a lively crowd, but they just killed the shit out of that room. You would think the Seattle faithful - that nauseatingly acts as if they are somehow part of the team - would be united on all fronts. Turns out the self-important season ticket holders are up on their high horse and sticking their nose up at those trying to work out the kinks of their generically lazy, blatantly sexist stand-up bit. Just a bunch of unamused wet blankets putting a damper on the mood out of "respect" for some woman who beat the odds to make it to the top of a male dominated profession. Christ Almighty, would it kill them to crack a smile at the expense of a gender that predominantly works in the field of beverage servantry?
All kidding aside, I do feel bad for this guy. I certainly won't defend his ridiculously offensive material, but I will sympathize with the feeling of having a bunch of people stare at you like a social pariah when you go just a litttttle too far in the never-ending pursuit of humor. Should have been pretty obvious that the old "you have a vagina, fix me a soft drink" wisecrack wasn't going to have a diverse, 21st century audience in stitches after the first time it failed miserably, but hey - not everyone can have the on-stage awareness of a Louis C.K. Sometimes they just need it smacked into them by their nearest dumbfounded neighbor.
