A+ call from Kevin Harlan, and the fact that everyone got INTERNET MAD about it gives it an extra two plusses, giving us a final grade of A+++.
Seriously, the amount of blog titles I saw pop up talking about Harlan’s “unfortunate” and “awkward” and “offensive” call makes me love him that much more. Just a quick sample –
I mean the people calling it “low hanging fruit”?? I don’t know, I thought it was pretty clever.
Hope everyone had a Happy Easter! Wouldn’t have felt right as a holiday if we didn’t mix a little outrage in with it right? Jesus would want that.
I will say, what gives me hope is that if you wait about an hour for all the outrage tweets to flood the internet and then check back, a new wave of sane, rational people floods right back in telling you to kill yourself if you got offended. Feel like that group gets bigger each time. The whiners and feet-stampers finally getting some push back.
