The third wheel on WEEI in Boston’s Dennis and Callahan took it way too far in his criticism of Erin Andrews for her follow-up with St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright.
Wainwright said during Tuesday night’s All-Star game that he threw a couple of “pipe shots” to soon-to-be retired Derek Jeter.
He later tried to backtrack on the comment after an uproar on social media: “What I meant to say was I’m intentionally trying to throw a strike to get him out. It’s what I do most of the time, almost all the time,” he said. “’Piping one’ is the wrong window for that. It really is. If I’m going to get taken to the slaughterhouse for saying a stupid phrase, then I deserve it. What can you do?”
WEEI personality Kirk Minihane took Erin Andrews to task in a straight-up foul way for letting Wainwright off the hook too quickly in her 8th-inning interview with him:
“What a bitch,” Minihane said. “I hate her. What a gutless bitch. Seriously, go away. Drop dead. I mean seriously, what the hell is wrong with her? First of all, followup. Secondly, the guy admitted he did it. He told reporters he threw a couple of pipe bombs. So how is that social media’s fault?
“I hate her. I seriously hate her so much. Yeah, only if it wasn’t for social… social media is the reason she has a big house. Shut up. Shut up.”
After his tirade, he seemed to realize he took it too far, saying “I shouldn’t call her a bitch because I’m sure she’s a nice person.”
