Manny Ramirez gives pre-game interview in Flemish

Chicago White Sox slugger Manny Ramirez proved again today what an intelligent and wordly person he is by giving a pre-game interview entirely in Flemish, a variety of Belgian Dutch. Although Ramirez has lived in the United States since 1985 when he was 13 years-old, he chose to give his initial White Sox interview in Spanish. Today he spoke in Flemish and plans to use many of the other languages he is fluent in in the days ahead. "People think I am stupid and that's just not true," Ramirez said in Flemish. "All the languages of the world can teach us many things about being an asshole."
