I missed the Channing CrowderLe'Ron McClain fight this weekend. Since I was in Cleveland it's LeBron's fault.
Once caught up, my initial reaction was that the schoolgirl fight is hilarious. Mostly because it wasn't me who was (allegedly) spit on.
"Then they said something about they let Karlos Dansby get away with a facemask the play before. Who the f--- cares? A guy just spit in my face!'' Crowder crowed.
But here's the money quote:
"I don't give a damn about Karlos pulling somebody's facemask. Like they didn't see Chad Henne get hit twice when he slid. Yeah, the officials were a little Stevie Wonder and Anne Frank...Who was that? Is that the blind girl? Helen Keller...I don't know who the f--- Anne Frank is. I'm mad right now. F--- it. I'm not as swift as I usually am."
Don't get mad at Crowder. Or public schools.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum isn't really marketed as a hot tourist spot. And all those Helen Keller museums, statues, memorial hospitals, et. al are over in Alabama, which isn't as easy to get to from where Crowder grew up in Georgia as people might think.
Plus, it's not the first time this mistake has been made and documented.
Unfortunately, this example is a completely satirical performance by an actor portraying a moron. But I've got a way to tidy things up. The solution is simple, really: Channing Crowder needs to watch more Family Guy.
Or both could shut up and play football. Either way.
