Women don't belong in the dugout?

New York Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez's comment that women "don't belong in the dugout" drew criticism Sunday from San Diego Padres manager Bruce Bochy, who supported the female member of his training staff and said he was surprised her gender even came up. Hernandez made the remark during the second inning of New York's 8-1 victory in San Diego on Saturday night. Mike Piazza homered for the Padres and exchanged a high-five in the dugout with 33-year-old Kelly Calabrese, the Padres' massage therapist. "Who is the girl in the dugout, with the long hair?" Hernandez said. "What's going on here? You have got to be kidding me. Only player personnel in the dugout." Hernandez found out later in the broadcast that Calabrese was with the Padres training staff. "I won't say that women belong in the kitchen,but they don't belong in the dugout," Hernandez said. Hernandez, a former Mets first baseman and "Seinfeld" guest star, then laughed and said: "You know I am only teasing. I love you gals out there -- always have."

Personally, I found this whole thing hillarious. I wonder what the feminists are saying about this?

"Ah yes, the patriarchy of males extends its mighty hand further into the realm of sports. Thiss guy is a looser!! He needs to ****** learn how to play! Why, I bet that girl could play better than himm!" Or something like that.
