IfÂ you’ve been a reader of this site for awhile you know there are not many wordsÂ that bother me,Â I mean com’on there just words, what the fuck? right. But for some reason when someone calls another person aÂ “cancer” it sends my bloodÂ pressure to the god damn roof. So when I sawÂ the story today that Johnathon Papelbon said that MannyÂ Ramirez was a “cancer that had to be cut out”Â I just found it so offensive. Believe me I’ve been called a lot of things in my life butÂ to meÂ you have got to have a lot of hate for someone to call them a cancer.
I know what Manny did to the Red Sox last year was awful and yes he did quit on them and that is reprehensible. But if you’reÂ going to attack a guy whyÂ use the term cancer when a aÂ simple asshole will do.
