What happened: Call me crazy, but it seems that hiring a controversial figure to talk about a trivial matter such as sports (yes, I know it feels like the end of the world when your team loses, but there are more important real-world issues to consider, such as "Is the chupacabra real?") can only result in something controversial.
Limbaugh said that, "The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well," on Sunday NFL Countdown in 2003. I won't get into whether he was right or wrong in what he said, but I will say that steering the conversation towards race will almost always land you in hot water.
Believe me, "because I'm Mexican" only worked for so long before my mom dropped me off in the middle of nowhere one fateful day. It's OK, though, the wolves raised me just fine.
Incidentally, I'm featured in National Geographic: Feral Children.
Result: Fired! Ahem...I mean, he resigned.
The Lesson: Rush Limbaugh sucks...and so does McNabb. Just kidding. He's cool (McNabb, that is), but I liked him better when him and Kobe shared the same haircut.
You know what I mean. Hint: It's my theory they were more aerodynamic and thus better.
