Fish take
« on: December 26, 2014, 12:35:29 pm »
The other day, Rome was discussing Marshawn Lynch's incredible run, and the play by play guy saying "holy catfish".

Then he said "do you think Marshawn eats fish? The only fish that guy eats are Swedish."

That take was eerily similar to the following tweet... COINCIDENCE?


Secondly, I disagree with the take entirely. He acts like only sophisticated people eat fish, which is not true. If you go to "the hood", you will find numerous fried fish places. Also, who do you see fishing on the bridge? Poor people.

Marshawn is on the record as being a skittles fiend so that was the basis for the take, not a "racist/cultural" presumed lack of sophistication.
As for the origin of the Swedish fish part, you do know KB is one of his writers, right? You must have amazing recall to link it back to a 2011 tweet lol.

I know KB is a writer, but its kinda weird seeing it that blatant.

And i mostly disagreed with KBs original tweet re Golden Corral customers not eating fish.

That is kind of an odd expectation. Their job is writers. Rome is not smart or quick enough to come up with all of that for a show everyday.
