Jenni Carlson hates blow-up dolls

This past weekend, the Chicago White Sox did something weird to break out of their recent slump. They got out the blow-up dolls. From the Chicago Sun-Times:

If anyone was offended by the White Sox having a pair of inflatable dolls surrounded by bats and a sign encouraging players to “push” in their clubhouse before Sunday’s game in Toronto, don’t expect an apology from manager Ozzie Guillen…

On Sunday, the bats were circled around the two naked female dolls, one of whom had a bat inserted in its backside to prop it up. Each wore a sign over her breasts, one saying “Let’s Go White Sox” and the other reading “You’ve Got to Push,” the National Post in Toronto reported.

As I said, that’s weird. But know what’s even weirder? Look who got upset:

One group not amused by the prank was the Association for Women in Sports Media, whose members work toward ensuring a non-threatening work environment for all women in sports media. “The presence of those dolls creates an uncomfortable situation for any female journalist who enters the White Sox locker room simply trying to do her job,” said Jenni Carlson, the group’s president, in an e-mail.

Yes, the White Sox “slump buster” was pretty bizarre and tacky. And yes, I can see how a respectable female journalist would feel uncomfortable around blow-up dolls with bats “inserted in their backsides.” But wouldn’t any person who is not a Christie’s Toy Box employees or arrogant athlete feel uncomfortable trying to work while surrounded by a bunch of blow-up dolls? Seriously, what were all the male journalists doing? Laughing, pointing and having a circle jerk?

Anyway, here are a few more thoughts:

  • Not only is Jenni Carlson a member of the Association for Women in Sports Media, but she’s also the president. Scary. This would be like Mr. Monday leading the North American Association of Anonymous Humor Columnists. The fact that Jenni rose to this rank simply proves my old theory that she is on a path to rule the world.
  • I wonder what Jenni would have said if the White Sox players were feeding the blow-up dolls Kentucky Fried Chicken. Or if there were rumors and rumblings that the dolls were going to transfer.
  • I’m pretty sure I know what Mike Gundy is going to send Jenni for her birthday.

  1. Could someone please explain the context of this picture? Was it taken at the reception of her lesbian wedding – for crying out loud, their “Twinkies”. Actually, that would explain a lot; her alleged interest in men’s sports, her distain for the locker room antics of professional athletes, and most of all her complete lack of any true feminine charms. Every time I see this chick I shudder

  2. Saw the pic and thought maybe you had lost your mind. Glad this was not the hot girl a day story. does make deano look more attractive…

  3. With the “love” that TLO shows Jenni, I am starting to wonder if Patrick secretly has a man-crush…I mean crush on Jenni…

    I am just saying…

  4. Seriously, OURedman is one of our five readers. Let us keep him. Anyway, I do find it alarming that she is president of anything besides the AASHMASP. Oh, that’s the Association of A-sexual, Short-haired, middle-aged Softball Players. Zing!

  5. I’ve just learned that Jenni Carlson and Dave Morris are, conveniently, the same person. He is the projection of her Id’s male envy, and she is his lack of understanding of divine femininity incarnate…

  6. Speaking of “meat” Jim….did you guys hear his meltdown today. I don’t actually listen to the jackass, but my kid was pushing the buttons and I heard him going off on Mark Rogers (more than his usual loud mouthed whine when someone doesn;t agree with him. Maybe someone taped it – it was classic sports animal; completely crybaby. All it was missing was Al Esbech giggling at Dean Blevens

    I was in meetings during this radio gem. There’s gotta be a sound clip of it somewhere, right?

  8. It’s definately you – Jenni Carlson wouldn’t be hot if she was standing in the middle of a Iraqi oil fire in August. Dude…..get some help!

  9. What in the blazes has happened to a sense of HUMOR. It was in their locker room not in the middle of the playing field. Lighten up I am sure the White Sox did not get up that day and decide to go after the integrity of a female reporter. Good Grief all this political correctness drives me crazy. Its baseball for heavens sake.

  10. You guys haven’t seen her photo lately. She’s dropped a ton of weight. All she needs now is an Oklahoma City Barons tramp stamp and she’ll be good to go.
