Clyde Drexler Can Expect A Call From PETA, Any Day Now

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

One of my favorite things to witness/hear, is when an announcer starts heading down a path that he shouldn't, and just plows ahead anyway. It's usually a classic case of "foot in mouth disease", but occasionally it can be much much more. Like take for example Houston analyst, Clyde Drexler. The "Glyde" was trying to explain how much of a mismatch Rockets' big man Yao Ming had over a defending Andres Nocioni, but went with just about the worst analogy you could think of. What is it you ask?

Clubbing baby seals. Via Clutch Fans....

"And Yao takes it to the middle, and hooks it up and in. Boy just keep going to that."- Bill Worrell
"That's like clubbing baby seals. There's nothing Nocioni can do."- Clyde Drexler
"Oh wow. Give me a better picture than that."- Bill Worrell
"Well he's helpless basically."- Clyde Drexler

Yeah Clyde....we get it. Good lord that was a bad choice of words.

This is so awful, the poor baby seals are hurting so badly. We need to condemn Clyde for hurting the feelings of the baby seals, he is so stupid for doing so.

I've actually heard that analogy used before.

But yes, you're right, it's not a good one.

Big deal. Baby seals are probably pretty easy to club, hence the comparison. It's not like he said he would actually do it.

PETA needs to grow a pair and quit being the little bitch of all the nonprofits.

Ha! Hilarious. I've never clubbed a baby seal but I imagine that it's as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.

you better apologize to the little fishies, who are hurting and scared because they think you might shoot them.

Go to hell, PETA. I don't care what you think.

What's wrong with clubbing baby seals? I shoot Bald Eagles all the time.
