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.”
