Chick Hernandez never should have opened his mouth.
I mean, he’s a sports anchor, so that’s his job and he should do that every day, but in the context of talking trash to a Redskins outside linebacker about an upcoming media vs. athlete celebrity softball game, Hernandez should have reconsidered.
The people behind the viral marketing campaign of the third annual third-annual Bethesda Big Train Celebrity Softball Classic stoked this fire, asking Hernandez his thoughts on Kerrigan for a promotional video.
His response can be summarized thusly:
“Rhino, you ain’t got nothing for a short, squat, Cubano who hits it all the way. You won’t be in right field because you won’t be able to catch that ball, but I’ll see you. Oh I’ll see you. “
Kerrigan responded with a video of his own.
Tongue planted firmly in cheek, the linebacker said, “I’m coming for you, Hernandez,” before emphasizing his point with a series of powerful foul swings that probably landed on some unlucky lady walking around Bethesda in yoga pants.
