That the televised portion of tomorrow evening’s Mets/Marlins game is delayed due to a Fox imposed national blackout has already been mentioned in other spaces, however the New York Post’s Phil Mushnick would like to point out, “the Marlins want to get the game over with so they can start a rap and fireworks show, ‘Super Saturday #1, the Post-Game Concert with Pitbull, Flo Rida and DJ Laz.'”.
An inspection of the lyrics chanted by Flo Rida show him to be an adherent to rap’s most arresting, advance-to-the-rear conventions. He has a propensity for using the n word, and he expresses greater admiration for fully loaded automobiles and automatic weapons than for women, whom he portrays as post-sex discardables.
Pitbull, on the other hand, raps pure sewer — and great self-regard — in both English and Spanish.
And the Mets-Marlins game is being shoved around to serve as their warm-up act.
While nothing bad ever happens at rap concerts, ahem, those who planned to attend this MLB game only as an MLB game might want to think deeper. Hey, Jerry Manuel claims to enjoy watching “gangsta” performances. Tomorrow, because MLB is without compass or clue, he may get a doubleheader.
On behalf of Tramar Dillard, I would like to point out there’s no such word as “discardables”.
