Today’s Sports has us chatting about a couple of trades/signigns for the Blues. We also chat about an baseball player who said he didn’t want to play in South Carolina…and guess where he is playing now…and we chat about the ESPYS from last night!
Really slow day in sports again today so lets chat HOCKEY. First the Blues have resigned veteran NHLer Jamie Langenbrunner but with good news comes bad…they traded BJ Crombeen to the Lightning for two 4th round picks.
The ESPYs went down last night. Bad news for STL sports. They got SHUT OUT. Not a single award given to any of our teams. Check out the full list of winners HERE.
Finally – check this out. This is hilarious – I read this story on DEADSPIN this morning. Outfielder Robert Refsnyder, who was born in South Korea, took some heckling from South Carolina fans at the College World Series last month when his Arizona Wildcats beat the Gamecocks. Refsnyder ran to Twitter and declared he “will never live in South Carolina because they can’t accept Asians playing baseball.” More than the irony that he’s an immigrant living in Arizona, the overgeneralization was a little much, and Refsnyder quickly apologized. Fate has a funny way of rectifying things. Refsnyder was selected in the fifth round by the Yankees, and signed on Friday. And wouldn’t you know it, he was assigned to their Class A team in Charleston, South Carolina. But that’s where the racists live!
