“If you’re a youngster in Alabama,
start getting the football out
and throw it around the backyard with Pop.”
NYTIMES: Musburger Under Fire For Remarks During Game
... comments made during the game by the ESPN play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger regarding the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A J McCarron. In the first quarter, ESPN showed McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, who was sitting near his parents. Musburger called the 23-year-old Webb, a former Miss Alabama, a “lovely lady” and “beautiful,” and said to his broadcast partner, Kirk Herbstreit, a former quarterback at Ohio State, “You quarterbacks get all the good-looking women.”
“A J’s doing some things right,” Herbstreit replied. Musburger, 73, then said, “If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with Pop.”UNDER FIRE FOR THIS!?!?!
IS THERE NOTHING A HETERONORMATIVE MALE CAN SAY TO OR ABOUT A WOMAN ANYMORE THAT WON'T BE ATTACKED BY LIBS'N LEFTIES!?
IT'S PC RUN AMOK.
LIBS'N LEFTIES WANT TO TAKE AWAY MORE THAN OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
THEY WANT TO CONTROL OUR VERY LIVES AND THOUGHTS AND WORDS.
IT'S FASCISM, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
UPDATE: PUNDITARIAN ADDS (BUMPED FROM COMMENTS):
He actually gave very sound advice. If you want to achieve what the quarterback has achieved, get out in the backyard - with your father - and start practicing!
He suggests getting the kid back in the supervised care of concern of his father, and sublimate his initial desire by striving to excel and putting in the work what it takes to excel.
I think that's what really infuriates the lefty liberals in the media.
They'd have NO PROBLEM with a rapster lasciviously salivating over the woman, and announcing (think of Mike Tyson's comments about Governor Palin) the intention to rape her.
That'd be artistic.
But to actually suggest that a kid have a long-term goal that he can achieve by getting out there and practicing skills with his father - specifically male skills, to boot - that's anathema to them.
