Mike Bacsik, former major league pitcher and current producer at SportsRadio 1310 The Ticket, has gone and done a no-no. We like to call it “open mouth insert foot”. Yesterday evening while watching Game 4 of the San Antonio Spurs-Dallas Mavericks series, Mike started down that lonely highway of drinking and doing shots to ease the pain of the impending Dallas Mavericks loss. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. However, once you’ve had too much…………..stay away from your Twitter account bozo! And so the drunken tirade begins. (Just a little background information on Bacsik: he is better known as the pitcher who gave up the record-breaking 756th home run to Barry Bonds.)
Here’s how it went down (please be warned there is some off color language and the racial slur)
First tweet: “At least Najera has balls, the refs couldn’t fix this game worse.”
Second tweet: “I wonder how big Stern’s cornhole is?”
Third tweet: “About 12 shots deep. So f this league!”
Final tweet: “Congrats to all the dirty mexicans in San Antonio!”
The last tweet was the one that got him in trouble. How many times do people have to slip up and embarass themselves before they get the hint? Racism, although dwindling, is still present. What did that tweet prove? It proved that this guy is a moron and can’t handle his liquor. For his actions, Mike Bacsik’s employment at KTCK has been suspended. Cumulus, which owns KTCK, made a statement about the situation.
“Mike Bacsik’s comments were unacceptable and offensive, and are inconsistent with the core values of KTCK and Cumulus. We have made the decision to suspend Mr. Bacsik with the hope that he will take this time to consider the insensitive and hurtful nature of his comments, ” said Dan Bennett.
Mike Bacsik took to his Twitter account again today to apologize for his actions and delete all of his previous tweets. He wrote, “I’m sorry for my horribly insensitive tweet last night about the Hispanic comm. in San Antonio. I apologize and I hope u can forgive me.”
Sounds very heartfelt Mike. Do yourself a favor……plan a vacation and get your resume together.
