Uh-oh! Somebody’s jock is in a twist, and it’s all our fault. Two weeks ago, we made Rinku Singh, winner of The Million Dollar Arm contest and one of two Indian pitchers recently signed to the Pittsburgh Pirates, our “babe” of the week. Apparently, Rinku saw this and thought we were accusing him of being a perv (from his blog on themilliondollararm.com):
One very, very bad thing about the news is that they say I on the BABEWATCH (http://disgrasian.blogspot.com/2008/11/babewatch-rinku-singh.html). this not true. i not watching girls. i only pitching, training, eat, watch baseball/Movies and sleep. American women very dangerous and very crazy. I like only Indian woman. Dinesh and JB, Sir have been harrassing me about this BABEWATCH. I do not like the BABEWATCH.
Since I can’t leave a comment on his blog, I have to clear the air here.
Rinku. Duuude. First of all, sorry. Second, chillax. We meant this only as a compliment, and it may be the nicest thing you hear said about yourself in the near future since baseball fans are notoriously vicious. In America, the word “babe” can be applied to both women and men. (Don’t bother looking this up in a dictionary; dictionaries don’t teach you anything about slang.) In this case, you are the “babe.” And we are “watching” you. Once a week, we like to feature certain people on our blog simply because they are nice to look at. I guess that makes us the pervs!
But, hey, at least you understand one very important thing about your new home–American women are dangerous and crazazy! Remember that when those groupies come to watch you pitch and ask to, like, stroke your bat and shit.
