    Did Jay Buhner Use A Racial Slur During Twins Game?

    Seattle Times' Mariners beat writer Geoff Baker passed along an interesting soundbite by Jay Buhner, former Mariner and current ROOTS Sports analyst for the ball club. During last night's game, Buhner commented that during Twins' Sam Fuld's attempt to rob Michael Saunders, Fuld "tricker-jewed" him.

    Not sure if that is racially-inspired or not but I am certainly unfamiliar with the term.

    That's a new one to me but Texans do seem to have their own lingo. They probably have their own unique racial epitaths as well.

    Either way, it's bizarre but I don't speak Texan.
