Brooks Marlow, a Class A player in the Houston Astros minor league system, decided to share a bad opinion on Twitter about an ESPN broadcast. While watching a single elimination game with huge stakes, Marlow simply couldn’t concentrate on said game with a woman’s voice on the call.
Marlow felt the need to share this discomfort on the internet because it felt like relatable content to him. Well, in 2016, it’s not. The Astros issued a thoughtful apology about the tweet, but that doesn’t change the fact that Marlow’s tweet is still something that is emblematic within the male-driven sports world.
