Olbermann Calls On ESPN Talkers To Wear Vomit Bags
Sep 10, 2013
Bristol, CT - Following ESPN's decision directing the continued use of the term "Redskins" when covering Washington's professional football team, sources close to Keith Olbermann report the outspoken sports talk show host is calling on all ESPN commentators to wear vomit bags around their necks when reporting on the club.
"This isn't some kind of symbolic protest about the use of a racist nickname," Olbermann told eTrueSports.
Olbermann denied describing his ESPN bosses as "moral cowards" for refusing to join Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Grantland's Bill Simmons and a growing number of news organizations including The New Republic, Slate, Mother Jones and the Washington City Paper who have all vowed to drop the offensive term.

Thanks to Wikipedia I know that the Washington Redskins' segregationist former owner George Preston Marshall is buried in ... Indian Mound Cemetery. In Romney, West Virginia. After seeing Romney name, humor impossible.

There's a curse on the Washington R-Words as there has been on other insensitive pro franchises. The only time the Braves won the World Series all these past decades years they've been contenders - even with the obnoxious Tomahawk Chop - was in 1995 when they played a franchise with a worse name, the Indians, and with an insulting image - Chief Wahoo - on their hats! So, Dan A-HOLE ("put that in caps") Snyder, think on that.

To All The Talkers: WFAN, certainly must welcome both announcers...John and Suzyn of the NY Yankees voice. They are the team of my listener ear. Nothing else, will do. Yea, yea, football too, ESPN just a little nausea.
