Remember the other day when Brent Musberger "victimized" poor Miss Alabama during his BCS broadcast commentary by mentioning how absolutely breathtaking she was? And remember how ESPN apologized for his "insensitive" remarks? (Or maybe they were "inappropriate". Sometimes, I get the specifics of all of this dumbassery mixed up.) Well, hey, guess what all of that attention ended up doing to the poor, poor victim? That's right. She's going to be in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue. Oh, but please, don't comment about her looks! That might only serve to cause the poor woman further trauma.
Does anyone who was making a big deal about this see how absolutely ridiculous it was at the time and still is now? Anyone? Anyone? Brent Musberger tastefully commenting on this woman's beautiful appearance was likely one of the best things that has ever happened to her. She'll end up being in Sports Illustrated. She'll end up doing other magazine photo shoots. And then she'll probably end up with a gig on some news station as an entertainment reporter. Or maybe she just guests on Entertainment Tonight or something like that. See, because while we act like the most puritanical society out there (as indicated by the fact that we are still hearing about Janet Jackson's nipple almost nine years ago when it was shown for 9/64ths of a second), we really love us some scantily clad, good looking people giving us the weather or the latest on Hollywood celebrities. She's hardly the "victim" that people made her out to be. God, I hate the media.Sphere: Related Content
