Late in last night’s thrilling MNF game between the Cowboys and Eagles, Tony Kornheiser took some time to apologize for something he said earlier in the broadcast, without referencing it directly. He said he was sorry for his “mistake” and says it wasn’t the first and won’t be the last one he’ll make.
But what the heck did he say? I was watching all night and hadn’t really noticed anything. Later I came to find that the offending comments were an off-the-cuff attempt at humor that Tony made after the audio had been switched briefly to the ESPN Deportes booth (while showing a replay of the kick-return TD by Felix Jones). But was it really racist? It wasn’t funny, but I’m kind of confused otherwise.
