I think it's funny that he's got five days off because of this. He made a mistake, yes, and you can't use that word on TV, but it's just a word. Did it warp minds? Is somebody that fragile that they can't take hearing a word like that? He apologized, and he sounded sincere, so move on. Maybe give him one day off, but five? Give me a break.
Eh, I don't think there was anything wrong with him getting suspended. If he dropped the f-bomb because of some crazy play or because something happened in the booth and it just slipped then that's one thing, but he started swearing because he messed up a line? You have to be a lot more composed than that to be doing a live broadcast, I got no problem with giving him 5 days to send a message to be more careful.

Maybe, but that alone is enough to get fired let alone suspended if his name wasn't Bert Blyleven.

The Giants are a team of destiny because Barry Bonds needs to win it all before he turns 40 and Dusty Baker needs to prove himself as one of the best managers of the last decade. The Cardinals are a team of destiny because Darryl Kile and Jack Buck died....
