If you missed it this afternoon, a Chief Wahoo debate broke out on Andy Baskin and Jeff Phelps’ show on 92.3 The Fan this afternoon and these gentlemen let me on the air by phone when I called to make a few points on the issue. It was going well for about eleven minutes before 92.3 morning show host Chuck Booms called in to express his disagreement by shouting me down with insults (“idiot,” “moron,” “racist” propagator of “inflammatory liberal make-believe garbage,” etc.), and by misquoting a nebulous 2004 SI “study” that hardly speaks to Wahoo if at all other than to conclude that Wahoo-like imagery is worse than the team names.
You can listen to this afternoon’s segment live here (again, the Booms “debate” starts right after the 11-minute mark).
