DeVos Does Tiger Baseball - What a Total Social Misfit, folks
This guy is not comfortable in his own skin!!!!!

Watching the Tigers vs Twins game tonight, all of a sudden he's in between the two TV Sports announcers with headphones on and they're trying to speak with him in a normal conversation and he just acted like a total weirdo.

He didn't know what to do with his hands, he couldn't put a coherent sentence together.

A total freak. No shit.

And it wasn't just me. When I saw it, I was too flabergasted to say anything, then the family started yelling, "EWWWWW! What a weirdo!!"

Jennifer Granholm should debate this schmuck every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday until November.

I am not kidding. This guy may just of made a Democratic campaign commercial and didn't even realize it.

Those commercials prop him up, but man, watching him live, he's out there!!!!!

1. Ticks Me Off
Just the fact that the Tigers let him have free air time cost them a ticket buyer, me. I will never go back. Just saw a game last week and had a good time. I saw the same idiot you did.

2. Ticked me off too, but I'm certain Granholm will have equal time
If she doesn't get equal time, then that's B.S.

But, man, I saw him, and I tell you, my emotions went like this:

1) How did this beady eyed prick get on the Tiger game?

2) Don't yell at the TV, let's watch him and hear him.

3) Well, this guy is strange, but he can't be this weird.

4) Nope he IS this weird.

5) This guy is a total weirdo, look at him looking back and forth and he doesn't know what to say or what to do with his hands.

6) He can't put a sentence together!

Then the wife piped in, "Oh, my god, what's wrong with him?"

Then everyone else chimed in, "Ewwwww! He's a weirdo!"

3. Did he bring his silver spoon? Betsy on her broom?
If the voters in Mi. vote this charlatan into office, then they have a bad case of political amnesia.

4. "Charlatan"
That is the best description ever.

And this thing with the Tigers broadcast, well, I would hope that Keith Olbermann at MSNBC got ahold of it and played it on his show.

This DeVos guy would be THE national laughing stock.

6. It was good to see Amway brought up in that cameo
That word turns off a lot of people, and they're not all Dems.

7. Yeah, free airtime is counterproductive when you're an awkward dork
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 09:26 AM by Strawman
He's gonna be in trouble when the focus turns from: "I'm not happy with the economy" to "Ok, who is this Devos guy?" Those beady little eyes. Give me the creeps too.

8. Dick's appearance had me laughing my ass off.
One of the broadcasters asked him if he gets out to the ballpark often. He didn't want to answer the question and they soon went back to calling the action, but then re-asked the question. Dick had to answer, so he stated that he "didn't get out there as much as he'd like", but that he had been to opening day this year, and to the all star game last year. What a commoner you are Dick.

Personally, I've been to two opening day games in my life, and I've been to well over 100 other Tiger games. All Star game tickets? Those are only for the very well connected, Dick. (but you knew that already didn't you?)

9. I agree...it was high fives at my house....
I've only been to one Opening Day and Zero All Star Games...and a Bleacher Creature for sure at the regular games.

This cat is out of touch, you are correct on that one!!!

10. You call him a cat?
As a pet lover, I find it highly offensive that you have compared the little Dick to a cat. In so doing, you have insulted kittens and feline owners everywhere.

You should apologize at once.

:evilgrin:

12. Yup. That would be a pole cat.
I'm sure that's what was meant.

13. He looked like a fish out of water....
.....what a total tool!! He looks like one of those guys who has to have a "handler" nearby to feed him anything intelligent to say.....I agree, Granholm would make short work of this ass in a debate......he'd spend the first 10 minutes trying to figure out what to do with his hands!

14. that was uncomfortable
I just saw one of DeVos' video blogs on YouTube and it literaly made me uncomfortable to watch. He was awkwardly trying to relate Tigers baseball to Michigan politics, and it was very evident that he knew little about either topic.

15. DeVos = Bush with more money and less experience.
It makes sense that he is an inarticulate doofus.

17. Here is the link

"we just need to get better" wow, great call Dick, is that all Michigan needs? Someone call Governor Granholm and tell her we found the strategy to help MI. What a joke, I agree DeVos can't quite mingle with the common folk, he seems uncomfortable.

Here is the You Tube link

18. That's not the link I was talking about.....
The bit I was talking about involves him sitting in the Announcer's box at Tiger Stadium.

It was on LIVE TV. Not his blog.

23. Even my non-political baseball watching friends thought he was a weirdo.
Hopefully that will do some damage to all the TV ads he has been airing.
