Social Commentary: Chargers' Announcer Regrets Jewish Joke, Promises Domestic Violence In Future

Every time you drop a penny between two Jews, a Chargers color guy is bound to lose.

Two days after Hank Bauer used the old how-copper-wire-was-invented jape on his Jewish booth colleague, Josh Lewin, San Diego released a statement saying Bauer's stand-up was temporarily on hold:

Although we know Hank had no ill-will behind his remarks, we agree the comments were inappropriate. Per Clear Channel’s decision, Hank will not be broadcasting Thursday night’s game.

Hank has been a strong radio voice for the Chargers for the past sixteen years and a passionate supporter of the team since his playing days. We look forward to Chargers fans receiving the same high-quality broadcast from Josh and Hank when he returns to the booth for the regular season.

For his part, Bauer was apologetic:

Furthermore, he indicated in an exclusive statement to The Daily Player he intends to avoid any further suspensions by committing acts of domestic violence on his partner.

"Ray Rice has really made me see the light. He's such a terrific guy. Man, I wish he was a Charger."

We're expecting the next YouTube footage of Hank Bauer to arrive any minute now.
