Last night on NBC's Sunday Night Football, the world saw a new dimension of Devin Hester. Late in the game, with his team desperate for a first down the Riviera Beach native, U. Miami alum and current Chicago Bear ran a crossing pattern. But his quarterback, Jay Cutler, threw the ball low, and as Hester lunged for it, he was sexually assaulted by a Philadelphia Eagles cornerback.
Cris Collinsworth handled it. No apology. No snickering. They didn't even mention it, hoping people would just forget they just saw a Bear (and bare) ass on their Sunday night network television program.
Or maybe I'm not giving the NFL enough credit. Could it have been a subliminal advertisement aimed at increasing viewership among straight women and gay men?
