Are You Ready for Some Football? Read These Stories and You May Not Be!

With football season nearing its first official kickoffs, it is an appropriate time to consider how even this entertaining sport has become tainted with our culture's deplorable decadence.

Here are two stories which, if the MSM were truly concerned about fairness, we would be reading an awful lot about. But, as things are, we must look to more principled "watchmen on the walls." In these two cases, that means going to the lovely and irrepressible Debbie Schlussel.

The first story lets the reader know that "bad boy" ballplayers like Keyshawn Johnson andTerrell Owens are pikers compared to others who have (literally) gotten away with murder.

And the second is Debbie's keen examination of Bryant Gumbel's latest incident of reverse-racism (which, of course, is just plain racism anyhow).
