Baltimore Sun: Just horsing around, Huff says

In a telephone interview with The Sun yesterday, Huff said he didn’t mean to disrespect the city of Baltimore or its residents when he referred to it as a “horses - -” town during Thursday’s 90-minute segment with Bubba The Love Sponge on Sirius Satellite Radio.

Huff’s appraisal came after the discussion turned to nightlife in the Tampa, Fla., area, and how much Huff indulged in it while he was single and playing for the Devil Rays.

“If anybody’s heard their show, or Howard Stern’s show, it’s a shock jock show, so everything’s flying,” Huff said yesterday. “You’ve got four guys in there, including me, and we’re talking about all sorts of stuff, including bars and restaurants, and how the two cities are different. I said Baltimore was horses - - for that. After games, places are closed down. There’s no place to go.”

Horse Tooth Jackass…

The real issue is who in the world was actually tuned in to this. Are there really people out there who think, "I choose to invest my leisure time in listening to a conversation between Aubrey Huff and Bubba the Love Sponge?"

Well now Al they are all up set because Audrey Huff called Baltimore city a horses posterior and it is not fair Al they have that Aquarium with the little Sea Horses that I love to visit when we play at Camden Town. Well here is something we know in the American League Al which is that when I came up as a rookie Audrey Huff would hit three hunnerd for Tampon Bay every year and they would finnish last any way and so he figured what the hell and started to drink two or six My Ties every evening after the game and pretty soon he is not hitting three hundred anymore and he is traded to the Oreos and things go from bad to wurst. Al I judge no 1 and I will leaf it up to the readers to decide which is the horses posterior here and if any 1 complains this is Primer and everythings flying I am just playing a Roll.

I heard part of it. I was flipping around and landed on Howard 101, and hung around because they were talking baseball. It was actually kind of an interesting interview.

That's ok, most people in Baltimore call Huff a horseshit player.

"Horse's Patootie?"

Sure, like Huff doesn't hang around at the peepshows on Gay Street.

Not as many beautiful women in Baltimore as Tampa, for sure...But I guess no one's shown him around Fells Point or Canton or the Inner Harbor yet.

Still, Aubrey, as lousy as you are, you should be going home after games and resting up. You need all the help you can get.

Okay, he can call the Orioles a horseass team, I do, and I count them as one of my teams.

But call Baltimore a horseass city? Has he ever been to the inner harbor? It's amazing what they did to the place.

If the Wire has taught me anything, it is that Aubrey Huff is a truthful man.

That's the other Baltimore. From Camden Yards to Fells Point its pretty nice. Just don't go a few blocks too far in either direction.

Nonsense. The entirety of Baltimore is a perfectly nice town unless one is candy-assed elitist white supremacist.

All right, that's hyperbole, but the worst parts of any city are the gentrified parts.

The worst parts of any city are the same places both pre- and post-gentrification.

Urban blight can only be described as "perfectly nice" by someone who doesn't have to live there by necessity.
