You know, my first instinct was to make fun of Braves' announcers Chip Carey And Joe Simpson for being so negligent in their pregame preparations that they couldn't tell the difference between a former black wide receiver and a current white outfielder. Thinking Jacoby Jones and JaCoby Jones are the same damn person, and that the narrative of an athlete changing skin colors and taking up a second professional sport in his 30's somehow flew completely under the radar is almost as idiotic as publicly speaking about it - at length - before fact checking. Unfortunately, I think I have to respect how little they give a shit about spring training. They definitely need a crash course in the NFL, but - as far as the MLB goes - they are keenly aware of the part of their schedule where they can cluelessly skate by.
I'm honestly kinda shocked that there was even one person out there that was paying enough attention to this broadcast to catch two dudes just carelessly shooting the shit about something that made no absolutely no damn sense whatsoever. I imagine Chip and Joe were just sitting there with their feet up thinking they were being used as nothing more than background noise in the living rooms of the elderly.
Think about it this way. They fabricated the most ridiculous career path in the entire history of sports. Then they let dead air sit like a stale fart. Then they ever-so-casually admitted their fuck up like it was an easy one to make. They assumed off name recognition alone that a retired kick returner and an up-and-coming bat of completely different races were one and the same for multiple minutes and then dropped the professional equivalent of a "whoops, my b". I don't know what that says about their critical thinking, but it definitely tells me they think the people spending their March afternoons listening intently to them are more hopeless than their football knowledge.
