For those of you who do not know who Rob Dibble is let me explain. Rob Dibble is a former Major League Baseball pitcher and currently does color commentary for the Washington Nationals on MASN. It seems that during Wednesday night’s Nationals game he went on a bit of a rant about two women sitting right behind home plate as explained here by Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bog.
You are an idiot. Just because two women were at a sporting event and as you said “haven’t stopped talking the whole game” does not mean they are talking about a sale! That comment was amazingly male-chauvinistic and closed-minded! Just because two women are sitting next to each other at a game and chatting the whole time does not mean they are not talking about sports. I go to games with my girl friends all the time. As a matter of fact I mostly go to baseball games with girlfriends and believe it or not we know more about baseball probably than you do. Heck, I even just went on a baseball road-trip with one of my girlfriends where we amazed guys with our baseball knowledge.
Women talk…it’s a part of our genetic make up.
What were they talking about? Who knows. Maybe they were talking about how Ryan Zimmerman’s ass looks in his baseball pants. Maybe they were talking about how MLB umpires are idiots and don’t have a consistent strike zone. Maybe they were talking about the pitch count and what the pitchers would throw next. Maybe they were talking about the latest bill that is before the Senate. And maybe they were talking about sales and how they couldn’t wait to watch the next episode of “The Real Housewives of D.C.”. WHO CARES!?
Point is Mr. Dibble, 1. You are paid to talk about BASEBALL not what is going on in the stands. 2. Don’t assume just because two (or more) women are sitting at a game together they came with their husbands, boyfriends, or even are part of a TV show.
Mr. Dibble…I know more about sports than the average guy and talk more than the average girl. I take severe offense to your comments and think you are amazingly pigheaded.
Next time I am visiting D.C. during baseball season I plan to go to a Nats game. Maybe I will sit behind home plate and chat the whole game with one of my girlfriends and hold up signs saying “Hey Dibble….I’m sitting here discussing OBP and UZR not LV and DVF*”
