Bloggers are losing their shit today over this video of Jonathan Papelbon in drag and performing the climactic scene in Dirty Dancing. Larry Brown Sports has a painfully long five-minute version of this video, while I saw this tolerable two-minute version at Awful Announcing.
And that’s all it is: tolerable. It might have been funny if we weren’t subjected to the reactions of all the Red Sox players. It’s like a horrible laugh track. “OH MY GOD, he’s dressed like a GIRL! He doesn’t take himself seriously! He probably doesn’t even call gay people fags! What a fag!”
I’m sorry, but where I come from it’s no big deal for young men to wear women’s clothing. Where I come from being “Drama Club.”
