Word! - UPDATED, YO!
From the AP write-up of today's scintillating A's loss:
"We have a lineup full of Great White sharks," [Dallas] Braden said. "If they smell blood it's going to be on and cracking."
Seriously…how do white folk have such an uncanny knack for jackin' Black slang ten years after Black folk stopped using said Black slang?
The beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle took some liberties with Braden's quote above. Here's how it appeared in today's paper:
"We have a lineup of great white sharks," Braden said. "When they smell blood, they'll be in there and get cracking."
Less ebonics = less awesome.
