Blogging 365, Day 15: 50 Shades of Brent Musburger

It was last week when Brent Musburger was criticized for the following remarks:

But let’s be honest, people. Were they all that bad? Have we gotten that sensitive about things like this that ESPN had to issue an apologize for his words? A few seconds out the broadcast were turned into something seemingly horrific and made Musburger seem like some sort of monster. His remarks were about Miss Alabama, someone who does little more than be known for her looks.

Move on. It’s something from nothing and not a big deal, and it’s not like Musburger was drunk off his ass and gushing over her like this:

Or saying he wanted to do things to her like this (VERY NSFW):

No, his remarks were taken so far out of context it was ridiculous. By the way, 50 Shades of Grey is a worldwide best-seller and will soon be made into a movie.

But let’s pick on ol’ Brent Musburger instead.

  1. I clicked on the video of Musberger last week with every intention of being horrified. But what he said is so much more tame than any of the harassing crap people yell on the streets on any given day. And…she’s made her name and living on being attractive. If part of your identity involves showing your “athleticism” and “poise” by strutting in a swimsuit and high heels in front of a studio and television audience — then comments like this shouldn’t bug.


    1. Exactly. It really was a non-issue but some feminist college professor probably got her knickers in a twist and decided to lash out. Meh. I failed to see how it mattered.
