Earl Weaver Awarded George Carlin Prize for American Swearing
About f***ing timeThe Kennedy Center is pleased to announce Earl Weaver as this year’s winner of its lesser-known, ‘George Carlin Prize for American Swearing.’

“Earl represented a new epoch in the creative use of foul language,” says the Kennedy Center statement. “The same way the George Carlin’s 7 Words you Can’t Say on TV¬†codified use of f*** and t**s, so Mr. Weaver’s infamous rants against umpires pushed the boundaries of blue language, bringing the likes of “c***-faced a**hole” and “s***-for-brains” into the lexicon of Major League Baseball.”

Earl Weaver spent 17 years managing the Baltimore Orioles, leading the team to five 100+ win seasons. He was known as much for his short fuse and sharp tongue as his winning ways. In today’s world of YouTube, Mr. Weaver is perhaps best known for his Manager’s Corner clip. The 2 minute, 39 second viral video features a Shakespearean use of four-letter words and includes the now infamous baseball axiom, “get them big c*** suckers who can hit the f***ing ball out the f***ing ballpark.”

Though overjoyed, Weaver’s family regrets Earl–who passed away in January–didn’t live to see the award. “He’d be real f***ing impressed,” they say.

The first Major League Baseballer to receive the award, Earl follows in the footsteps of author James Joyce, comedian Louis C.K. and this past year’s honoree: Joe “This is a big f***ing deal” Biden.¬†Inspired by this foray into hardball, next year’s George Carlin short list includes the likes of Bucky “F***ing” Dent and Baltimore’s own Billy “F*** Face” Ripken.
