Terry Bradshaw says Reggie Bush
'chasing a bucket of chicken'

USA Today, by Chris Strauss

Original Article

Posted By:voxpopuli, 11/6/2012 9:25:52 AM

Prior to Super Bowl XIII, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson famously remarked that Terry Bradshaw was "so dumb he couldn't spell cat if you spotted him the 'c' and the 'a'." (snip) Bradshaw commented that the Miami running back was "chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day,"

Comments:

If you have to quote "Hollywood" Hendersen to prove a point then you have no point to prove.

Hate to come across as dense but what did Bradshaw say that was offensive? Where can one go to find the complete list of things you can't say if you are white? At one time sports commentators in basketball used to refer to all 5 of the players suddenly running down the court as a "jailbreak". That would seem to me to be much more offensive. Well I think I will have a bucket of chicken for lunch and collard greens followed by a slice of watermelon. And I don't care what anyone thinks.

My sister-in-law shows horses at many of the same venues as Bradshaw. She is amazed that some think him dumb. It's an act and it's been a financially lucrative one, but Terry Bradshaw is a smart and very intelligent man.

Is Terry Bradshaw a "Clinton crony"? I think he is very entertaining.

So many expressions - like "chicken" and "watermelon" - are now racial code. I think it is chip-on-the-shoulder rubbish.

Our family has always been crazy about fried chicken and watermelon, and we are not black. Deal with it!

Someone tried to compare this to what Rush said, I nearly smaked them. All Rush said was that the media wanted McNabb to do well as he is black. He also said McNabb was not that good, which is wrong. Bradshaws statement is flat out racist and wrong.

So I guess only Black people can make jokes like chasing buckets of chicken. Everyone knows that Terry Bradshaw says crazy stuff from time to time but the truth of the matter is that he was a Superbowl winning quarterback and is a smart guy. As a Black man what he said was funny. Everyone needs to get a grip and stop being so offended at every darn thing. Come to think of it it's lunch time and a two piece with biscuits and mashed potatoes sounds good right now. KFC here I come.

I've met Bradshaw and spoken with him for about an hour. The person you see on TV is what he is in real life. A real what you see is what you get kind of guy.

Why is watermelon and fried chicken so grossly offensive to negros? They're not the only ones who love the stuff. Now, if Terry had said he was, "Chasing the 'crack' pipe..."

Taylor said in an interview Tuesday that he has made a cash offer as an individual without any other investors. He declined to say how much he would pay, but he emphasized that the Star Tribune is the only media company he is pursuing. “I’m interested in this one because it’s a Minnesota paper,” Taylor said.

Dawn Marie Pfister was a 34-year-old “free spirit” and the mother of two young children from Elkhorn, Wis. Her boyfriend Matthew Vincent Serbus once lived in St. Paul and had a long criminal record for theft, robbery and drugs. Now, Pfister’s family and friends are searching for answers about how and why the couple died of gunshot wounds after leading police on a high-speed chase on Hwy. 212 from Chaska to Eden Prairie on Friday morning. The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the two Saturday. Officials have not released many details about the incident or explained what prompted police to open fire.

Thirteen people were injured, six critically, early Wednesday moirning after an explosion caused a major fire at a grocery store and apartment building on Cedar Ave. in south Minneapolis. No cause has been identified as of yet, said Greg Nelson, supervisor of the Minneapolis Emergency Communications Center, but the building that housed the West Bank Grocery and a mosque is likely a total loss. A police squad car reported the fire at around 8:16 a.m. after seeing the explosion and seeing debris on the street, he said. Flames were shooting 20 feet from the building, officials said. The second and third floor later collapsed. The injured were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and Univesity Hospital.

Federal authorities have obtained confidential documents that shed new light on JPMorgan Chase´s decision to hire the children of China´s ruling elite, securing emails that show how the bank linked one prominent hire to "existing and potential business opportunities" from a Chinese government-run company. The documents, which also include spreadsheets that list the bank´s "track record" for converting hires into business deals, offer the most detailed account yet of JPMorgan´s "Sons and Daughters" hiring program, which has been at the center of a federal bribery investigation for months.

He told her he was a hedge fund manager, and despite the disapproval of her family and friends, Schunk dated him for a few months. Those who knew her say she thought she could help him.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
