    They are? They used to mean something...I have a hard time finding anything to meaningful anymore with the commercialized Olympics.

    The media messed-up when the made Kwan and Bode the focus rather than the other stories of athletes that we should embrace.

    I am in th eminority of the peopel speaking out, but I do like Gumble.

    He usually has good things to say.

    Read it how you want. There was another thread on this and it got locked down. so I am not even going to go where the other thread went.

    He only says that there are a small number of black athletes in the winter games and that the Winter OL lacks SOME OF the pure athletic sports, and include a lot of theatrics(kiss and cry room) and judging.

    It is just his opinion, let's not have a cow.
    Problem is, he KNOWS that he is making mess...and probably gets off on it! That qualifies him as a Jerk...not necessarily what he said, but the fact that he did it on national TV!!!

    It's kinda like the Cheney incident...it's not that he accidentally shot his friend, it's that he tried to hide it...makes him appear to place himself above the law!
    He(Gumble) didn't try to hide it.

    The show was on HBO, not actually National TV. He always does an editorial at the end. Editorials are suppose to be on the edge or of some concern. I don't necessarily like the comment he made, but that is no reason to burn him at the stake.

    I don't necessarily like all your comments Cajun, but I am not going to start a thread or a witch hunt over it. Gumble gets a chance to redeem himself next editorial.

    If you like him, watch him.
    If you don't, don't watch or read his comments.

    He is no Nelson Mandela or MLK, he is a commentator. He gets paid to make comments.
    True...but I don't have a nationwide audience either (unless more people than I know actually read PP.O and think that I am great...in which case, I am severly underpaid...LOL)

    I don't hate Bryant Gumbel...I just think that he is arrogant...and I do really like his brother better as a sportscaster. Besides, I gotta show SOME love for Gumbel...he's from New Orleans, so I gots to support my peeps! :lol:

    Here's one comment that I KNOW you don't like:

    DUCK FUKE! :razz:

    BBQ - Somehow you got the impression that I really care what you think of my posts. I didn't know you were the official post rater. You are assuming too much that I care what you think and that your posts are pulitzer prize winning notes.

    So blather on, I really don't read your posts but did notice the bold print. That caught my eye and read your rather juvenile attempt at building your ego.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    I was saying it means something to the competitors.

    I personally only watch a few events that I find interesting.

    :sign5: :violent3: Ouch.

    I was actually making a statement about that post, not about you. Sorry for the misunderstanding and crap.

    BTW, Del was the one who added the bold print when he quoted it. I wrote it in normal print.

    I already have a massive private army of Pauly Shore clones and suicide penguins. My ego needs no further building. :lol:

    He looks Malato to me anyway.. He doesn't look Black, and he doesn't look White.. He is half Black, and half White.. So this makes him a bigger horses a$$ for putting down both of his races.. Screw him, he has no class, and no skills as far as broadcasting goes anyway..
