ESPN website does it again-uses word “Gook” in headline

February 29, 2012

Good news: ESPN hasn’t used the word “chink” in a headline in two weeks

Bad news: They have used the word “Gook”

Holy crap! Just weeks ago,  The Worldwide Leader had to fire multiple employees and suffer the wrath of the Asian-American community over the use of the word “chink” in a headline. Now, ESPN has screwed up even worse.

Tuesday, they found a way to get “Gook” into an online headline.

Hank Williams Jr. is taking his Confederate flag and going home

October 7, 2011

Country music singer Hank Williams Jr. has officially been fired by ESPN and Monday Night Football. Williams, you’ll recall, had his opening theme song pulled from this week’s MNF game after he compared President Obama to Hitler during a Fox News appearance..

On his website, Hank Jr. claimed he “quit” rather than being fired. Williams said he did so because ESPN “stepped on the toes of the First Amendment Freedom of Speech” therefore “Me, My Song and All My Rowdy Friends are OUTTA HERE.”

Like most Tea Party and Fox News afficianados, Williams is an even worse Constitutional scholar than he is a singer. The First Amendment, of course, doesn’t protect your right of free speech from ESPN. It prevents the GOVERNMENT from restricting your right to free speech. ESPN is free to fire Williams for any reason it wants-because he’s fat, was drunk while representing their organization at 6:00 am or because he offended millions of people who are not from the South or watch Fox News.

Williams will now have to go back to making all his money from selling Confederate flag memorabilia off his website. Mainly since he is currently booked for ZERO appearances for the rest of 2011 or 2012 as a singer.

Still, simply being a racist and knowing nothing about The Constitution does apparently qualify Williams to be the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Tennessee. So, he’s got that going for him.

Time to revisit the Jay Bilas Selection Sunday comments

March 28, 2011

JAY BILAS

With Virginia Commonwealth University now in the Final Four, let’s go back to the comments of the one guy who was most vocal in stating that they never should have gotten into the NCAA Tournament in the first place. On Selection Sunday, Jay Bilas of ESPN absolutely POUNDED the selection committee. He called the committe’s selection of VCU (and UAB) as NCAA Tournament participants as “indefensible.” Bilas maintained that picking VCU was so stupid that he questioned whether the selection committee “knows if the ball is round.”

In case you’ve forgotten, here’s the video.
