High School Baseball Coach Goes on Epic 17-Minute Tirade, Tells Every Single Player “F*ck You” (Audio)
It’s not unusual for a coach to lay into his players after a really poor effort, nor is it unusual for a coach to drop a few f-bombs. It may sound irrational and boorish to some, but that’s how sports works. If you don’t get a little fired up sometimes, you’re not going to be very good.
That being said, the reaction of La Mirada High School baseball coach Kim Brooks to a recent loss is a bit unusual. It’s not the intensity of his anger or the f-bombs. It’s the duration. Brooks’ profane tirade lasted an astounding 17 minutes.
During those 17 minutes he dropped too many f-bombs to count and singled out every last one of his players.
“You can’t f-ckin’ dive for a ball in the infield? F-ck you! Can’t make a routine play? F-ck you! You gonna f-ckin’ piss and moan at the f-ckin’ umpire? ‘Nyah nyah nyah,’ f-ck you! Get off the goddamn mound! I want a man out there.”
If you want to listen to the entire 17-minute tirade, you can do so over at Deadspin, where they don’t redact the word “f-ck.”
If you don’t have 17 minutes to listen to f-bombs right now, here’s the abridged version:
As you would assume, Coach Brooks has since apologized for the tirade. And assuming this sort of thing isn’t a regular occurrence, I think we can probably all move on.
