I’m raising my stick high for Brendan bscuaee he does deserve it. Your words about Brendan in your interview with John Buccigross are spot on. Being gay doesn’t change who a person is. Even though I don’t know Brendan, I have tremendous respect for him. He sounds like an all around good guy, and that was before he came out. I respect him so much for that type of courage. It’s something I will never understand, but I can try to imagine what it’s like.Brendan’s story needs to be spread around the sports world and around the country. Courage like his doesn’t come around too often. It’s terribly sad he is no longer with us.
I don’t know. I think he’s taking the piss a bit in the first three pahprraags. A sort of in-joke amongst native speakers that a lot of Koreans reading it won’t get, and if they do get it, have every right to take offence. They’re trying hard to brush up on their English by reading the KT for 30 minutes on the train home and he’s mocking them in that oh so British way. Someone must’ve pissed him off.John Huer’s fair game. He deserves it. But the average Korean English learner doesn’t. If anyone can explain to me why they do, then I’m all ears, but they’ll have to do better than “Oh lighten up Eujin, can’t you take a joke?”
That’s a quick-witted answer to a difficult question
