Rush Limbaugh Trying to Buy the St. Louis Rams
|If this man owns the Rams, it's safe to say there will be no black quarterbacks on that team.|
Palm Beach's most famous oxycontin addict is trying to purchase the St. Louis Rams, probably the NFL's worst team at the moment. Rush Limbaugh announced today that he is teaming up with St. Louis Blues owner, Dave Checketts, to buy the football franchise worth $929 million (as estimated by Forbes Magazine).
The most verbose (some might say obnoxious, and others might even say evil) right-wing spokesperson in the country, Limbaugh had a small stint as a football analyst for ESPN in 2003.He resigned (was fired) after only a few weeks for saying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.
To be fair to Limbaugh though, at the time he made those statements it had only been 15 years since Doug Williams was the winning quarterback and MVP of Super Bow XXII.
And for the record, the Rams have three quarterbacks on their current roster: Kyle Boller, Marc Bulger, and Keith Null.
All three are white.
