    What was said by the Announcer

    I'm curious what the announcer for the Okie State game said. He kept apologizing and then finally his colleague finally said you're good or something like that. Almost like he was pleading for his job on the air.

    He said, 'hack a polish slur'

    As someone with the last name Pollock, I officially am not offended

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    What? Are you telling me that people from Poland aren't called Pollocks? What are they then? Poles? That sounds absurd. But I jest, that's pretty bad.


    Rhoads out!

    It was "Hack-a-Polack." Not correcting spelling here or anything (since either is OK), just trying to add the link.

    Wack a Pole would have been so much better, and also politically correct.

    Thanks! The way he was apologizing was making me feel uncomfortable, but I understand why now.

    p.s. who needs wikipedia or google when you have CycloneFanatic!

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    Huh, I didn't even know that was deragatory. I thought it was just a term for a polish person similar to saying American.

    Disclaimer: I don't believe I've ever actually said the word before.

    I think it comes from connotation. For example, "Hey, heard this Pollock joke?"

    So if Bryce Cotton sets a nice screen and the announcer calls him a cotton picker do you think the announcer will get fired?
