Yesterday, in case you missed it, Fox Sports “Reporter” Jay Glazer (who has spent the last five years blurring the line between professionalism and “that’s my buddy!”) conducted the greatest cupcake interview since Oprah interviewed Lance Armstrong.
"Richie Incognito Is A Terrific Person: The Interview” was EXCLUSIVE to Fox NFL Sunday. In short, Incognito is a victim even though extorted Jonathan Martin out of $15,000. And in case you thought he was a racist (note: we never thought that), he gave Jay Glazer over 1,000 text messages between he and Martin that “prove” they are great friends.
That’s not the worst part. That award goes to the NFL Sunday guys that spent six minutes burying Martin, topped off with Terry Bradshaw INSISTING that it was Martin’s turn to talk.
What?!?! Jonathan Martin is the victim. He doesn’t owe you a public interview. He’s been the victim of a crime. Extortion is a CRIME! This is such typical behavior from people like Bradshaw. In his attempt to be intelligent (which has never been Terry’s thing), he wants to hear from both sides so he can get a handle on what really happened.
How about no, Terry? How about Incognito shouldn’t be doing public interviews? How about his story is some warped half-truth account with so many holes in it, Bradshaw could drive his car from the Cannonball Run through them?
This is a slap in the face to Martin and any other employee that has been pushed too far. They are the victims. They don’t deserved to be flogged in the public square. Martin never publicly accused Incognito of anything. Incognito then released their private correspondence and has the Fox NFL guys doing his dirty work.
There's nothing I like better than notifying the people of San Antonio of how awesome we are! I know it drives the pessimists crazy, but here's what Dan McCarney of the Express News found about the Spurs:
Thirty-eight percent of all respondents claim the four-time champion Spurs as their favorite NBA team. That’s nearly twice as many as the Mavericks, who were in a virtual dead heat with
at 22 percent to 21 percent. Houston
This despite, at 28th, trailing well behind Dallas/Fort Worth (No. 5) and Houston (No. 6) on Nielsen’s national market rankings.
Hooray, San Antonio!!
So sorry to troll you with anything having to do with Keith Olbermann. BUT, this is great. If you haven't heard about the bloody military jerseys that Under Armor made OR the Gettysburg Address hockey jerseys that are going to be worn by the Bakersfield (CA) Condors, this should get you caught up.
