    That I believe.

    After the Torino winter olympics, that putz actually went on his HBO show and complained that the world's best athletes weren't at the games because there were so few blacks. Now....just how many winter sports do they play in Africa? I swear, Al Campanis and Jimmy the Greek had nothing to do with this, yet this jackass had to grandstand about racial politics at the winter olympics.

    No, I didn't, but I know of the Jamaican bobsled team.

    And if they can, why don't they? (he asked rhetorically...)

    Bryant's an ass...

    as i know nothing of these announcers

    i add this to the debate. how would it feel if it was a Female announcer , reporter commentater who was chosen as one of team of the aforementioned.

    it has happened here in Soccer on the BBC, a while back , none really seemed convinced that it sounded right.
    of course she did the job perfectly. and i am still desperately trying to think of her name. (her name Jaqui oatley)

    In the States, women are getting more and more into announcing men's events. That's fine with me, as long as they know the sport. Most often, they do. Every once in awhile, there may be one who's hired for her looks only, as was often the case when they first broke into the business, but not so much anymore. In fact, you're almost more likely to get a pretty boy who doesn't know what he's talking about instead. Or, as in the case of Magic Johnson, a person who isn't intelligible.

    If you have the inclination, find a youtube of Earvin Magic Johnson, listen to the man talk and decide for yourself.

    I don't think he was trying to be clever, no.
