#15 John Rocker – The former closer for the Atlanta Brave, Cleveland Indians, & Texas Rangers was out of his mind. Rocker is best known for the following Sports Illustrated quote regarding playing in New York City:
“I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you’re riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing… The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?”
New Yorkers went crazy because of these controversial comments & Rockers kept getting in trouble for saying the most ignorant statement to the press. Rocker currently lives in Georgia, where he’s a Grand Wizard in the Ku Klux Klan.
