CBS hypochondriac Gus Johnson has apologized for a comment he made while calling the Jaguars-Titans game. Skip to the 0:30 mark. Johnson called a TD from Titans running back Chris Johnson, quipping that Chris exhibited “getting away from the cops speed,” which I can only presume falls somewhere between “limping down the sidewalk triple-file with friends speed” and “running to the mailbox on the first day of the month” speed.
“If there is a perception of racism in this analogy, it is not coming from me,” Johnson said. “People of all races have run from the law. However, to those who are offended, I apologize.” –via PFT.
I don’t get these people that suddenly sta-stamp something as offensive and demand an apology. What, you’re offended? So? At some point, everyone is going to have to realize that comments like this only get funnier in the face of that sort of righteous indignation. Sorry I’ve been so distracted; I’m watching highlights of Jordan Shipley right now. Boy, is that kid gritty. And deceptively fast. vid from AA.
