Imus: Its time to retire to the ranch
I wasn't going to comment. I really wasn't. Why? I'm a RU grad and am proud as hell for the Lady Knights (Lady Knights?) for their stellar play and all-around good story. I haven't been posting sporting stuff here, so the last thing I wanted to do was desecrate a great story with Imus's stupid, stupid remarks.
I can take the New Jersey jokes; I'll even swallow a good Rutgers joke. But you went too damned far. These women are exemplar members of the community. They are not fuck up losers. They are NOT nappy headed hos; far from it.
Imus has a long history in the radio business. He generally speaks truth to power. I don't always agree with him, and think he's kind of an asshat most of the time. He does a lot of good things with his charities.
That's all nice, and I've got the voilin out. But too damned bad; Imus. Retire already. Go back to New Mexico.
Or else. You DO know that James Gandolfini is an alum.
