She told them when they asked her that she couldn't do it 'cause she couldn't sing worth ****. But they were all excited to be able to send a celebrity out there all unexpected and everything and told her not to worry about her singing, just be funny.

So she did. She did some baseball-isms in an effort to be funny. Spitting, digging at the groin. She'd been told by the guys that sent her out that that's what was wanted.

Boy, was she set up or was she set up?

 

This happened so long ago I don't remember many of the details. I didn't think it was

much of a big deal at the time, but some true red, white, and blue types were really

upset. 

 

Isn't Fox going to pick up Last Man Standing? More power.

Is that when Roseanne and Tom mooned the American flag?

I recall hearing something like that, but I don't recall that much. Arnold

was even more annoying that Roseanne, and that's saying something.

I suppose you're right, but I always felt so sorry for him.

Fox, yes Fox, is going to bring back Last Man Standing. I didn't like Rosanne ever. Saw a couple of minutes by mistake this week, as the show follows 'Wheel.' Maybe they should call it Old Rosanne and place it on CBS after Young Sheldon. Last Man Standing is fun. Rosanne is using a bulldozer to make her points about politics. Good thing I can still watch Murder, She Wrote instead.

He did seem like kind of a loser and not a very lovable one.

I'm not a fan of Roseanne, but I remember this so vividly because I thought it was so crude to do it on live TV and extremely stupid behavior for a popular TV star.

I looked up where she mooned the live TV cameras at a baseball game - - apparently she and Tom Arnold wanted to show the American public their tattoos.

So it looks like this happened after her marriage to Tom Arnold in 1990--

1) It was referenced in an article in Vanity Fair, " The Ballad of Roseanne and Tom" - - December 1990

2) And in a compilation article about her career in the LA Times, "Go Quietly?  No Way! " May 4, 1997

 

It's no big deal, but I remember it so well because I think it just encapsulated my whole opinion of her with or without "The Star Spangled Banner" performance. LOL

White men has been mostly trashed in the major sit-coms over the last few decades.   E.g. Everyone Love Raymond.    Of course these are sit-coms but back in those 'good old days' white men were portrayed in a much better light.
