Blyleven Isn't Out Solving That Thing; He's F—-ing It Up

You know, it's a sad day when a broadcaster can't let loose a couple of "fucks" on the air without getting suspended for it.

Twins broadcaster Bert Blyleven, who is always doing something with a microphone he shouldn't be, has been suspended two games by the Twins for, as the AP story puts it, "uttering words after slipping up during Sunday's segment, which he thought was being taped rather than broadcast live. The words are on the Federal Communications Commission's list of words that can't be broadcast between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m." That's an extremely long way of saying what the vulgarian that is Aaron Gleeman quotes as ""We gotta do this fucking thing over again, I just fucked it up."


We don't have any video of this yet, but honestly, we don't see what the big deal is. If you fuck up a fucking thing, you have to do the fucking thing over again. What's the problem?
