Absolutely No Concept of Time and Place

I'm currently watching the professional football game between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins.

Today, Washington honored former free safety Sean Taylor who was killed in a robbery in his Florida home last November.

I put the game on at halftime and heard football announcer/ former player/ current idiot Moose Johnston say the following:

"The Redskins really dodged a bullet that first half."

A poor choice of words...in general, I feel...but particularly, on this day. How embarrassing. He surely would be a bit more careful now, I assumed.

"The last thing the Redskins want to do today is get into a shootout. They can't afford to get into a shootout."

Oh wow, really? Really, Moose Johnston? Do you have any idea how words work? That they convey multiple meanings?

Wow. Idiot.

Also, the name of the team from Washington is "Redskins." I will never get over this.

not only was that a poor choice of words. But the Giants' wide reciever Plaxico Burress is in trouble with the law and faces illegal gun possession. read the story on my blog.
