Most of the media attention coming out of Super Bowl media day yesterday was focused towards Ray Lewis and the Sports Illustrated story of his use of deer antler spray, a banned substance by the NFL—and by the way, I loved the sports media hypocrisy yesterday. Ray Lewis tore his tricep and less than two months later is playing again. Do the math. But all I heard was, "he's never failed a test!" Please, the WWE's drug policy has flunked more guys than the NFL's. But Alex Rodriguez gets named on a list of customers for a crooked pharmaceutical joint in Miami and the media is bent out of shape calling for the guy to retire/be deported/forfeit every dollar to his name. Can we just have some consistency? — But lost was San Francisco cornerback Chris Culliver's anti-gay statements to comedian/sports talk host Artie Lange. Here's a couple:
"I don't do the gay guys man, I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do."
"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah...can't be...in the locker room man. Nah."
"Yeah, come out 10 years later after that."Now I'm not hear to get on my high horse about gay rights, I'll leave that to Chris Kluwe who is surely penny a six thousand-word letter to anyone that will read it on the topic. I do have a few knee jerk reactions however:
1. Mr. Culliver isn't the most eloquent gentleman walking the planet.
2. Mr. Culliver probably doesn't know much about the city he plays in.
3. How bad do you think Torii Hunter is rooting for the Niners on Sunday?
