Football: Giants Vs Iggles

My NY Giants take on Duncan's Iggles Sunday afternoon in the NFC playoffs. That should be a heckuvagame. And here's a flashback to a little racism

My NY Giants take on Duncan's Iggles Sunday afternoon in the NFC playoffs.

That should be a heckuvagame.

And here's a flashback to a little racism from RushBo on ESPN.

"I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well,'' Limbaugh said. "There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

He quit soon after.

My comments this past Sunday were directed at the media and were not racially motivated," Limbaugh said in a statement issued late Wednesday night. "I offered an opinion. This opinion has caused discomfort to the crew, which I regret.

"I love NFL Sunday Countdown and do not want to be a distraction to the great work done by all who work on it. "Therefore, I have decided to resign. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the show and wish all the best to those who make it happen."

George Bodenheimer, president of ESPN and ABC Sports, issued the following response: "We accept his resignation and regret the circumstances surrounding this. We believe that he took the appropriate action to resolve this matter expeditiously."

No racism there. And he loves Obama. Hey, I have a nice bridge to sell ya.
