Bob Costas

     Poor, poor Bob Costas, being criticized for having shot off his mouth pushing gun control over a horrible murder-suicide, in which an NFL player, a large, strong man quite capable of bare-handed deadly mayhem, shot and killed his girlfriend and then -- rather later -- shot himself.

     Mr. Costas, from the depth of his years studying psycholo-- Ooops, calling sports play-by-play, confidently assures us that had the killer not had a gun, none of this would have happened. 

     But don't blame ol' Bob.  Why, if he hadn't had a microphone, he'd'a never said such a thing.

     Remember, about the people you watch on TV?  Pretty much the same crowd who tightrope-walked the monkey bars and/or stuffed pencils up their nose all through their school years, shouting "Lookit me!" the whole time.  They've become grayer but no wiser.

I forgot to give credit to Jennifer
[In Jennifer's Head] for that about two years ago when Cusak opened his piehole.

It was one of the best commentaries on TV and its total lack of and connection to reality. I deserves a full repost.

...and they're much more annoying.

My favorite response to Costas was someone who 'shopped his line onto a promo photo of him and OJ.

Bah, Bob Costas is a gnat. His thoughtfart wasn't a patch on what this particle physicist had to say about it.

As I've said elsewhere, the high point of Bob Costas's career was when he co-hosted the 1988 Olympics with Paula Zahn. Little Paula Tooth advanced and hosts a true crime show on Investigation Discovery Channel, while Bobby Costas is still a jock sniffer doing color for some sports channel along side a jock who could speak his own sentences after beating his head into the opposing team members for 10 years.
With any justice in this world, he done Zumboed himself. "The Zumbo-Costas Effect." Pontificating on subjects one is ignorant of.
