Sports Outside the Beltway

Don Imus on NCAA Womens Basketball

It is sad when the biggest news story that came out of the Tennessee-Rutgers National Championship Game is another bonehead comment by Don Imus.

Imus started out talking about the Rutgers team as, “some rough girls from Rutgers. They got tattoos,” and then went on to call them “some nappy-headed hos.”

He compared them to the Tennessee team, saying “The girls from Tennessee — they all looked cute.”

The conversation then went on to compare the game to “the jigaboos versus the wannabes.”

Lovely. I think women’s sports get far more attention on television than they merit based on fan interest but they certainly don’t deserve this kind of treatment.
