You may have heard about this clip last week, but YouTube had to pull it before many got to experience its gleeful hilarity.
It began as a simple inquiry by comedian/ersatz sports announcer Denis Leary if Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis was “a Greek kid.” But things went viral after pro announcers Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo informed him Youkilis actually is Jewish. Leary, along with his “Rescue Me” costar Lenny Clarke, took it as an opportunity to rip into Mel Gibson like only a sharp-tongued Irish smartmouth can. Really, it’s simply gorgeous.
It only gets better when Leary finds out Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler is also Jewish and cackles We got two Jews on this team, Mel! Wheres your father now, huh?
