I don’t know if “First Take”‘s Dana Jacobsen has the Feederz’ “Jesus Entering From The Rear” on her iPod, but she can borrow mine anytime she likes. While Ms. Jacobsen’s behavior at a recent Atlantic City roast of Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic has been noted elsewhere, it appears her anti-Golic sentiments make Frank Expression’s sound positively rational by comparison. From World Net Daily (link swiped from Awful Announcing) :
Jacobson, reportedly intoxicated, was speaking at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City, N.J., when she unleashed a profane tirade, saying, “F— Notre Dame,” “F— Touchdown Jesus” and finally “F— Jesus.”
Catholic League president Bill Donohue said he pressed ESPN on the issue and received an e-mail with an unsatisfactory statement by Jacobson. The statement said, in part, “My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words.”
Donohue contended the response “fails on several counts.”
“First, there is no evidence that ESPN is taking this matter seriously,” he said. “Are we to believe that her hate speech is of no consequence?”
Finally, the Catholic leader said, “By far the most offensive thing she said, ‘F— Jesus,’ isn’t even addressed!”
“It is obvious, then, that neither Jacobson nor ESPN is dealing with this matter in a professional way,” Donohue declared. “To put this issue behind them, ESPN must deal with this issue quickly, publicly and fairly, something it has yet to do. After all, most Christians are yet unaware of this event, but once they learn of it, they are sure to demand accountability.”
On the contrary, Mr. Donohue, there’s a tremendous consequence. Dana has just supplanted Zach Selwyn as my favorite ESPN personality of all time.
