Marge Schott Shows Her Prolific Ignorance

Date: 2/5/1993
: Called Eric Davis and Dave Parker her "Million-dollar n*****s."
Who said it: Marge Schott

If you think that all old women are sweet and kindly, then you've never met any like former Cincinnati Reds owner, Marge Schott.

Classy, Marge. She later tried to cover herself by claiming that the comment was simply a joke. We still don't get it.
