BABEWATCH: Ron Darling

October 14th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Ron Darling

Hails from: Massachusetts

Occupation: Baseball color commentator and retired pitcher

Ron Darling is my older man-crush. Sure, the Hapa pitcher was on the cover of GQ when he was younger, but I find him really hot right now, with his salt-and-pepper hair and that middle-aged thickness (which doesn’t work at all for, say, Cal Ripken, Jr., who is 48, like Darling, but looks like a marshmallow). I also love those sleepy eyes, that yummy caramel skin, and that name (try saying it over and over–it’s fun). And the Yale-educated Darling is doing a decent job providing color commentary for TBS during the playoffs–and by “decent job” I mean not talking too much and not coming off as some backwater Bubba, a la Tim McCarver or Rick Sutcliffe–not that I need anything from him other than to shut up and look pretty.

In the current issue of Vogue, Zhang Ziyi says that she doesn’t understand why people have been protesting the Olympics.

“I don’t see why people are so negative. The games are about friendship,” she says. “I’m Chinese and I’m proud of my country.”

Listen, lady. I’m Chinese and I’m muthafuckin proud of my mother ship, too. A lot of people like me are. But just because I’m juiced for the Olympics and ready to lock myself in my house for the next month doesn’t mean I don’t understand why people are “negative.” Yeah, it hurts me when people conflate the Chinese government with the people, and I’d like to think that if your average American lived one day in your average Chinese’s shoes, fighting their way onto a public bus, shitting in a dirty public squat toilet, watching every word they say, they would get why the Olympics matter so much to China. But that doesn’t change the fact that the Chinese government does a lot of shady shit. The Olympic Games are putting China on center stage and, for better AND for worse, China’s detractors. Don’t act like you don’t know the score, Zhang Ziyi. That’s plain stupid. And stupid, girl, ain’t very Chinese.
