It’s impossible to get on any sort of social media platform without being bombarded by endless selfies, completely proving beyond a shadow of a doubt we live in the most narcissistic, self-obsessed time period in human history.
Well, a group of sorority girls attending an MLB game between the Diamondbacks and the Rockies became the object of fascination for the sportscasters, who obviously aren’t familiar with this younger generation’s insatiable desire to snap photos of themselves, and started mocking them, which ended up being pretty hilarious.
From Opposing Views:
Fox Sports commentators Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly encouraged people to take selfies of themselves for a T-Mobile promotion, but then poked fun at the Arizona State sorority gals for doing so:
“Look at the one on the right, do you have to make faces when you take selfies?
Wait, one more now … I’m checking, did that one come out OK?”
That’s the best one of the 300 pictures that I’ve taken of myself today!
Every girl in the picture is locked into her phone. Every single one is dialed in. Welcome to parenting in 2015. They’re all just completely transfixed by the technology.
Wait hold on, have to take a selfie with a hot dog, selfie with a churro, selfie just of a selfie.
Here’s my first bite of the churro, here’s my second bite of the churro.
You know the beauty of baseball is you can sit next to your neighbor and have a conversation. Or you can just completely ignore them.
Of course, since we live in a pansy culture that actively goes in search of things to be offended over, it didn’t take long for crybaby lefties to start screaming “sexism!” at the top of their lungs.
Mic.com fired back in support of the college girls: “But the conversation is particularly offensive in light of the stereotypes surrounding female sports fans, such as the idea that they’re somehow less serious than male fans or that they only pretend to like sports to attract guys.”
“…While we’d love to give these dudes the benefit of the doubt, it’s nevertheless troubling to see a group of young women mocked on national television by a pair of grown men. There might not be any crying allowed in baseball, but apparently, there sure is a lot of sexism.”
I guess it’s never occurred to the loony left that maybe, just maybe, there’s a little bit of truth to some stereotypes. Just watch the video. These young ladies pretty much set themselves up for mockery!
Anyway, it wasn’t sexism, it was simply older folk not connecting with younger folk, which has been the same story for each generation since Adam and Eve left the garden. It’s not a big deal.
It’s sad we can’t enjoy a little humor these days without someone’s “feelings” get hurt or someone acting salty.
