The Pittsburgh Pirates blew a 5-0 lead in their 9-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night at Great American Ball Park.
But when they went ahead 4-0, the Pirates' official Twitter account did get a chance to tweet a reference to Thom Brennaman's apology for using a homophobic slur on the air last season:
Earlier this month, the former Cincinnati Reds and FOX play-by-play broadcaster offered new opinions and observations in an interview with David J. Halberstam published on sportsbroadcastjournal.com that accompanied a Halberstam column insisting that Brennaman's "career was destroyed with impunity and through a typical rush to judgment."
In July, Brennaman appeared on The Josh Potter Show and discussed a number of subjects, including being able to accept people's jokes about the now-famous "drive into deep left field by Castellanos" call he made during his on-air apology.
