    ^ Sure thing, sir.

    Directly translated, it means "You ar gay". Ere is how "Eres" (you are) sounds phonetically by the Cuban accent that omits the "s" at the end. "Maricón" would be the offensive slur which is an augmentative derived from "marica", nickname also as offensive derived from a nypmh, demeaning for a feminine male.

    I know he was joking... but... surely you don't write that silly stuff on yourself or equipment. :eek:

    The best things the Jays have ever done other than winning back to back series is returning to that logo. It's the best in the league, IMO.

    Yeah, I bought a whole **** load of their merchandise after the logo change. Too bad after the logo change, everybody alive on that team has entered the DL.

    And swoly, thanks for the translation

    Braves got rid of him because of that lack of maturity.
