I Apologize for Talking While You Were Talking – Summer Baseball in Full Swing | The Daily Show


The sun is out, and summer sports are
in full swing, which means it’s time
for another edition of I Apologize for Talking
While You Were Talking. (cheering and applause) WOOD:
Ah, yeah. Welcome back, sports fans. I’m Roy Wood Jr. My usual partner, Michael Kosta,
is out this week, but it’s all good, because I’ve
got my man Ronny Chieng with me, and he is psyched
to talk baseball. -Aren’t you, Ronny?
-I hate baseball. That’s the spirit. You know, Ronny, baseball
is America’s national pastime. Oh, really?
I thought it was racism. Well, lucky for you,
this week’s big story has both. Relief pitcher Josh Hader made his first appearance
on the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers
since Saturday since controversial tweets
from when he was 17 resurfaced during the All-Star Game
last week. After giving
an emotional apology for those racially charged and homophobic
social media posts on Friday, Hader was warmly greeted
by the fans at Miller Park on Saturday, given a standing ovation
when he came in to pitch the top of the seventh inning
in a game against the Dodgers. Mmm, now, that was
a great thing to see, Ronny. Josh Hader,
busted for racist tweets, apologizes,
and now the Milwaukee fans are showing forgiveness. -Yeah! -I don’t know, man.
It kind of looks like some people are clapping
for the racism. Okay, well, we don’t know.
Let’s just be honest. We don’t know why
they were clapping. Sometimes you just join in
on something because everyone else
is doing it, like-like the wave or cocaine. What? No. Ew. Who’s doing the wave? I-I think
they’re letting him off easy because he can throw a ball
really fast. Yeah! That’s how sports work! The better you are, the more shit
you can get away with. Josh Hader is an all-star, which means he’s so good, he
can bounce back from bad tweets. Ron Artest was so good, they let him punch fans
in the face. And Shaq was so good, he got away with Kazaam. Hall of Fame, bro. -Okay. Okay, hang on, hang on.
-Hall of Fame. So you’d be okay if LeBron James
went around punching babies? Up to three babies,
I’d be fine with that. But, hey, let’s move on
to a lighter story. Well, Millennial Night
was the talk of the town in Riverwalk Stadium
in Montgomery. You might remember us telling
you about some of the backlash this promotion got
on social media. REPORTER: The first 100 fans
through the gate received a participation ribbon
just for showing up, with superfood options
such as avocados, and selfie stations. And as if that wasn’t enough, the Biscuits also provided
nap pods for sleepy fans. (chuckles) Oh, man. Selfie stations. You got to admit, Ronny,
this baseball team really stuck it
to those millennials. No, they didn’t. They just
accidentally made baseball a thousand times better. Yeah. I get to eat avocados
and take a nap? Just take away the game,
and it’s a perfect afternoon. And-and, also, that wasn’t a real millennial
experience, okay? If it was, the fans
would have left the game with $100,000 in student debt. (cheering and applause) But rest well, millennials. You aren’t the only young people having problems
at baseball games. When it comes
to baseball etiquette, one Chicago Cubs fan
strikes out. Watch the first base coach
throw the ball to a kid in the front row.
The little boy drops the ball. It rolls back a row. Oh, oh,
that man, he scoops it up -and hands it to the… woman
next to him! -Wait, what? -What? Since there’s no crying
in baseball, the kid watched as the adult
continued to gloat. No, no. Pro tip: if you want a ball,
you don’t steal it from a kid. You go to Wal-Mart and you steal
it like a goddamn adult. This story makes me so mad,
Ronny. Really? Because it just proves
how boring baseball is. The most interesting thing
that happened was a ball
that went out of bounds. Come on. Ronny, Ronny, look, no matter what you think
of baseball, we can both agree, this guy is an asshole. No, that video’s
totally out of context. Deadspin reported
that that guy everyone hates actually gave that same kid
a ball earlier. Well… But, still, the kid could’ve had
a second ball. Now he’s only got one ball. He’s walking around
like Lance Armstrong. I don’t like that guy. -Whoa, whoa, whoa…
-I don’t like it. -He could have two balls.
-But that guy only took the second ball so
he could give it to another kid. So not only is
he not an asshole– he’s like baseball Jesus. Yeah. He gave gifts to children,
and we crucified him for it. All we had to do was wait
for the whole story. Isn’t sports more fun
when you wait five minutes for all the facts
to make an informed decision instead of reacting to
everything with blind passion? (sighs) Thank you so much for coming in. My real partner, Michael Kosta,
will be back next week. Thank God! Ronny Chieng, Roy Wood Jr.,
everybody!

  1. If the child was black, the racist bullshit would have been ones more smuggled in, honestly i don't think this channel is been fair when it comes to the issues of race

  2. That "Millennial Night" sounds something made more for Corporate Oligarchs than anyone else. I mean, seriously, who fucked up the stereotype list?

  3. 3:36 …..when you want wife's permission to go to holiday trip with friendsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  4. Its crazy these baseball teams in the minor leagues have enough money to do stupid s*** like this but they pay their players only threw the season not for Spring training and below minimum wage Up until last year they were only getting 3 to 4$ an hour

  5. OK, I LOVE Ronnie Chang. He is the classic straight man, and his delivery is flawless. Always makes me laugh.

  6. Hmm i wonder if they would dare to make fun about a woman who got her breasts amputated. Cause theyre making fun of armstrongs testicles

  7. I really enjoy this segment. I can't get away with coughing near people without upsetting an entire hospital full if already sick people.

  8. That whole baseball stealing from a kid thing was all dramatized. What actually happened was the kid already had a baseball and told the guy here could use that one for a bit. And the guy passed it to his wife, sure you a picture with it and then have it back to the kid.

  9. Up to 3 babies? I love these segments, Ronny Chieng made the most valuable statement I've ever heard at the end.

  10. As a millennial, I can tell you that NONE OF US ever wanted participation awards.
    Participation awards were a condescending mark of shame.
    Our parents/the Boomers came up with that idea to boost our self-esteem and make us feel special, and now they mock US over what THEY created.

  11. On that note Connor McGregor got off with disorderly conduct when we originally should have got felony criminal mischief.

  12. We don't know if Hader still holds those views? Do you still think the same way you did when you were 17?

  13. Racist fuckers took the ball from the kid because he was brown. If that kid was white the white KKK haircut douche that picked up the ball would have given it to the kid. People like that are an embarrassment to to tbe USA – to the human race!

  14. the "baseball jesus" joke didn't get its justice.

    "This guy is giving kids presents and now we crucify him?" RIP

  15. Milwaukee is disgustingly racist, so you know baseball in Milwaukee is ridiculous. I hate baseball too, Ronny.

  16. The only thing worse than baseball ( besides golf) is assholes who take baseballs from kids and try to act like they didn’t

  17. Sometimes comedy comes at you like a trainwreck, and you watch it not to laugh but just to ride the dark spiral of being way too sober at the stadium park.

  18. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ€¨πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ€€πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄

  19. Here's hoping that Ronny Chieng plays Lou Gehrig to Michael Costa's Wally Pipp, who missed a game and saw Gehrig start the next 2,130 for the Yankees.

  20. Let me start with the disclaimer that I have never heard of Josh Hader before now. In looking him up, I'm seeing that he tweeted the racist, sexist, and homophobic comments when he was about 17. He's 24 now, which means he's had 7 years to grow up and learn more about the world. I don't know enough about him as a person to say whether or not his apology was/is sincere, but I know that I was a VERY different person at 24 than I was at 17, and he may very well have made a complete turnaround on how he feels about people. If those are the most recent offensive tweets anybody could find, and nobody turns up anything terrible that's happened in the 7 years since, I'm inclined to cut him a little slack.

    Also, thank you guys for going the extra mile and standing up for that man who was accused of stealing a ball from that kid. Context is everything.

  21. The whole β€œif your good at sports we let you get away with stuff” bit is totally copied from Neal Brennan’s standup special β€œ3 mics”

  22. Here’s a fucking crazy idea: when ur sport is dying bc young ppl don’t go to games, don’t insult those young ppl in a dumb promotional gimmick that didn’t even sell more tickets than a regular game would’ve

  23. Why the hell was that guy so damn quick to snatch up every ball he could?! What is he? The SUPER FUN BALL SNATCHER MAN! He snatches your balls just to give them to whoever he deems worthy! Maybe we all should just give him all our balls!

  24. Ronny is so done with everything!! like even standing, he's like "For how many more hours should I do this? I didn't know stand up comedy meant actually standing guys!!"

  25. America's favorite pastime is not just racism. There's killing people, hating our government, shooting people. Heck, we love shooting so much we no longer know the difference between schools and shooting ranges!
