Video: ESPN's Colin Cowherd Engages in More Race-Baiting

In the time-honored tradition of Rush Limbaugh, ESPN’s Colin Cowherd is a thinly disguised race-baiter. Earlier this year he said John Wall‘s early-season exuberance, as borne out by dancing The Dougie during his first pregame, showed Wall would never win an NBA title and was largely due to Wall’s lack of a father figure. (Wall’s father served time in prison and has since died.)

Cowherd, whose own father must have been such a strict disciplinarian that he spawned an ill-informed sociologist with diarrhea of the mouth, revisited his pet issue of black athletes who need to be put in line by saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell represents the first authority figure that many black athletes encounter — since, ya know, every black athlete went to a high school akin to the one in The Principal with Jim Belushi, before migrating to some lawless college campus where they raped and pillaged at will. Listen along to Cowherd’s latest embarrassment.

Rangers Sign $1.6 Billion Extension With Fox

Fresh off their first playoff birth since 1999, the Texas Rangers have agreed to a 20-year contract extension with Fox Sports Southwest beginning in 2015.

The deal is reportedly worth $1.6 billion and is among the most lucrative in Major League Baseball for a team without their own regional sports network.

USA Today first reported the deal was worth $3 billion, but a Fox spokesman said that amount was “wildly inflated.”

The Rangers current deal is worth roughly $45 million a year, compared to $80 million a year as part of the extension.
