ESPN has had a hoot playing the role of sports Pravda during Barack Obama’s trip to Cuba.
But while the four-letter network has been engrossed with “reporting” on the Presidential trip to the four-letter country, there’s one member of the staff in Miami who seems less than ecstatic about the Presidential visit, and the baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team on Tuesday.
Dan Le Batard, host of the Dan Le Batard Show on ESPN, is of Cuban descent and doesn’t find Raul Castro nearly as totes adorbs as President Barack Obama does.
Le Batard also wrote:
President Barack Obama, Derek Jeter and ESPN head toward communism like it is another cruise port, so many symbols of Americana descending on a rotting island stuck in the 1950s, and it doesn't feel quite right back in Miami, like watching a funeral morph into a party. The history of my own people feels like it is being either ignored or trampled, and I'm not quite sure which of those feels worse.
