Damon Bruce: Another great moment in radio

And now the Blob a new semi-regular feature, Airheads On The Air:

Today's featured nitwit is some dim bulb named Damon Bruce, a sport-radio yakker from San Francisco. Apparently Damon thinks what happened in the Miami locker room happened because (all together now) Jonathan Martin just couldn't "take it" like a man, and somehow this is all the fault of the feminization of the male species, and blah-blah-blah-blah.

Anyway, Deadspin thoughtfully transcribed some of his rant. It's like listening to a guy speak Klingon, but here goes ...

A lot of sports has lost its way, and I'm gonna tell you, part of the reason is because we've got women giving us directions. For some of you, this is going to come across as very misogynistic. I don't care, because I'm very right.

<...>

There is a serious group of you fellas out there that have just been so feminized by the sensitive types out there who continue to now interject their ultra-feminine sensitive opinions into the world of sports.

<...>

I enjoy many of the women's contributions to the sports—well that's a lie . I can't even pretend that's true. There are very few—a small handful—of women who are any good at this at all. That's the truth. The amount of women talking in sports to the amount of women who have something to say is one of the most disproportionate ratios I've ever seen in my life. But here's a message for all of them...All of this, all of this world of sports, especially the sport of football, has a setting. It's set to men.

<...>

This is guy's stuff. This is men's stuff. And I don't expect women to understand men's stuff anymore than they should expect me to be able to relate to labor pains.

Yo, Damonator. I'm a guy. I'm a man. And I've got no clue what the hell you're blathering about, either.

Although I suspect if you could relate to labor pains, you'd be on the floor sobbing like a 2-year-old. Just a guess.
