Skip to comments.Thoughts on the Olympics (a quote from Bryant Gumbel)
Posted on 02/15/2006 5:07:33 AM PST by DennisR
Mr. Gumbel's statement: Because [the Winter Olympics] are so trying, maybe over the next three weeks we should all try too. Like try not to be incredulous when someone tries to link these games to those of the ancient Greeks who never heard of skating or skiing. So try not to laugh when someone says these are the worlds greatest athletes, despite a paucity of Blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.
Please contact HBO at http://www.hbo.com/apps/submitinfo/contactus/submit.do?title=Real%20Sports&questiontype=realsports to let them know what you think about this.
The man is a racist....everything is about race to him....He deserves no respect....
What a pathetic, little man. His only good role was on Family Guy.
Is this for REAL? This is disgusting.
Remember what they did to RUSH over the McNabb remark.
I will contact HBO.
I hope Mr. G has given up his bad habit of playing golf at exclusive country clubs that lack racial diversity in proportions reflective of the general population so that he may remain a pure and undefiled example of righteousness to our poor world.
And didn't Bryant divorce his black wife to marry a white woman?
Bryant Gumbel was so full of himself on "Today"...I think that's when I gave up watching any of the morning shows.
"White people like Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumble look like Malcolm X."
So Bryant is saying that blacks are the worlds greatest athletes,that whites simply can't compete with blacks in athletics, and that if you aren't black, you can't be the worlds greatest athlete.
I'm still trying to decide why you need separate men's and women's teams for Curling? If there ever was a sport where you'd think the sexes could compete equally, it would have to be one where you slide rocks on ice.
Rush Limbaugh doesn't like curling, although he did say that it was nice to see women using brooms again.
So, Bryant, let's take a peek at HBO's biggest shows. Sopranos are not exactly paragons of diversity. Deadwood, #%*#& &$%#% right again. Taxicab Confessions, maybe? Some other shows may have a couple minortities. And gee, isn't the latest lady in your life a white? Dang, Gumby-boy, you have been infected!
Yea Bryant, just ignore the fact that Blacks have reached the highest positions of REAL responsibility in this GOP administration. OBTW, I'm a black man who skis, so there's nothing to prevent black people from coaching their children to Olympic level capability in the next few years.
"The broom babes"
Some people just can't resist another 2 minutes of being on the stage.
Well, like it matters anyway.. have to listen to the American fru fru figure skater trying to pretend he's some poofer bad ass and going to stick it to the red state republicans.... Of course he got his well worn rectum handed to him by the Russian anyway....
Or have another supposed "bad ass" talk his jackass game, only to watch him get DQ'd for missing a gate.
Hey guys, if you truly are as rebel and tough and all that other crap as you want to pretend you are... shut your damn mouth and let your actions speak for you... of course if you did that... you might actually win.
Trash talk <> Gold Medal... dumbasses.
"The man is a racist....everything is about race to him....He deserves no respect...."
You nailed it, he's also a blowhard phoney!!
What a grumpy, bitter man
omg he really didn't say this, did he???????????????
