Quote of the Day

Will Leitch on the Joe Buck show:

Buck didn't help himself by going to his sports media buddies and apologizing for the whole episode, like it was some terrible ordeal he feels awful that children had to see. (You'd almost call it a "disgusting act.") But you think last night's episode was bad? Wait until the "safer," "friendlier" Episode Two of "Joe Buck Live." That's going to be the talk show equivalent of when, in the wake of Stephen Colbert's blistering mockery of George Bush at the Correspondent's Dinner, the White House asked Rich Little to do it. Episode Two is going to feature Troy Aikman and Billy Crystal playing checkers.
I didn't actually see the Artie Lange segment until yesterday; when I first watched the show I turned it off after the Favre interview, and HBO had pulled all the YouTubes in the subsequent days. I was expecting it to be funny, but really it was just damn uncomfortable to watch.
