Orioles hardly ready to soak up Love Sponge

ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

November 13, 2007|By ROCH KUBATKO

Maybe this is the week that the Orioles avoid a controversy. I like the odds.

You can be sure that the organization is livid over Aubrey Huff's appearance with Bubba The Love Sponge (I can't stop typing those words). I've talked to enough people about it. And it's not so much that he said "horses - -," though that didn't go over well, either. The main issue is the overall subject matter.

Huff opened up a little too much about his favorite pastimes. He was extremely graphic and crude, and the Orioles found it extremely inappropriate, even if he was "acting." They would prefer that their players didn't cozy up to a shock jock and reveal every aspect of their personal lives. They'd prefer that their players avoided appearing on shows with women who are promoting an X-rated Web site and engaging in conversation that would make a porn star blush.
