There were some eye-opening remarks from Bryant Gumbel on the most recent episode of HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel. According to a transcript posted by a television columnist named Seth Frelich, Gumbel said the following in his closing monologue last week (emphasis mine):
"Finally, tonight, the Winter Games. Count me among those who dont care about them and wont watch them ... Because theyre so trying ... Like, try not to be incredulous when someone attempts 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. Try not to point out that somethings not really a sport if a pseudo-athlete waits in whats called a kiss-and-cry area, while some panel of subjective judges decides who won ... So if only to hasten the arrival of the day theyre done, when we can move on to March Madness for Gods sake, let the games begin."
So what do the Summer Games look like? An NAACP Convention?
Hey Gumbel: Perhaps more black people should have trained and qualified for the olympics then. Whadda ya think?
..And Gumbel looks like an imbecile..
This from the guy who dumped his black wife for a white blonde woman.
Just another reason to NOT watch the Olympics or NBC. Can you imagine some white guy saying something about the NBA. Gumbo is a racist ass.
What about the Jamaican Bobsled Team.
Hey Bryant...what about the Jamaican bobsled team? ;-)
Imagine if a white guy said watching an NBA game was like watching a rap concert.
Gumbel is pure racist with those comments.
He is the epitome of a MSM prima donna. Imagine what kind of a rectum he is in real life if even a TV network dropped him.
What a class act. Not only does he trash the Olympics, he drags politics into sports with a racial comment.
He may be a moron, bot someone is paying him big money to say these things publicly.
Any small advance of the agenda is worth the cost, I guess.
Then the irrational, obese and sour Bryant Gumbel, who apparently feels that he should see people just like him where ever he goes in the world, should go out and recruit black athletes for winter sports, if their absence bothers him so. No one is forcing anyone to stay out, or forcing anyone to participate for that matter ... at least among the western Democracies at least.
Gumbel strapped down to a luge and tossed over the side would be an olympic event I'd pay to see!
I can sort of agree with him on the slam on figure skating, but of course it applies equally to the gymnastics that rule the summer games. And the rest is just stupid.
He's kinda niggardly with his praise of the Republicans.
Coming from a guy married to white woman, this is rich.
Bet I could sprint/run better than Bryant could skate.
I'd pay to see that pompous bastard on ice skates. I'd teach him some manners.
