Not exactly sure how Mrs. Bill O'Reilly here was able to take any time off from building a border wall or trying to get Don Quixote banned from her local library, but here's a pretty awful clip in which she appears upset that Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is speaking to someone in Spanish, his native language.
Reyes handles it much better than many of us would, stopping the woman cold with a short "How are you?" and his trademark smile. That's to his credit, of course, but I still would have loved to see Reyes turn and ask the woman how many languages she's able to speak fluently and/or how many bases she stole in 2008.
For the record (though not that it matters), Reyes speaks English very well.
A big BLS head nod to Sports Rubbish for the find.
