FOX Sports' "This Week in History" page on their website has gotten a little too strict when censoring words today. Rand Ball sent me a link asking me what I saw when I scrolled down to Jan. 29, 1936, and I couldn't stop laughing. Here's the quote and photo....
Jan. 29, 1936: Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Walter BLEEP , Christy Matthewson and Honus Wagner are announced as the first inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame.If you click on the bleeped out name of Walter "Johnson" it sends you to FOX's censorship page. Apparently the word/name "Johnson" has other meanings...what possibly could they be???
