NFL Announcer Rips Whoopi Goldberg and/or the Detroit Lions

In the first quarter of the Detroit Lions/New Orleans Saints game (you can tell it’s the first quarter because the Lions aren’t getting their asses kicked yet), announcer Chris Myers was referring to a player who was with the Steelers last year and is with the Lions this year and said the following: “Going from two Super Bowls in Pittsburgh to the winless Detroit team — that’s like going from dating Beyonce to Whoopi Goldberg.”

Honestly, as a long-suffering Detroit Lions fan and one who has also been put off by Goldberg on numerous occasions, I don’t know who should be more offended… Whoopi, or the Lions. That’s a toughie.

Will race-pimps like Al Sharpton pounce on this one? I can’t imagine how, since the caucasian announcer also complimented an African-American woman in the process, but we’ll see what happens.

You make the call:

Hey, nobody seemed to care when Keith Olbermann took a swipe at Sarah Palin during a game, so what’s the big deal?
