Get a life, get a period

A my friend Billy would say, "Get a life, get a period."

I watched Chris Collinsworth interview Kobe about how it feels to be playing for the United States. The questions Chris asked and his tone enraged me. What a moron. He should be ashamed of his questions and stick with what he knows- commentating during a game.

I'm glad Gateway Pundit has the transcript because I wanted to post about it, but didn't write down exactly what Collinsworth said.

Collinsworth: Tell the story when you first got your USA uniform.

Kobe: Well I had goosebumps and I actually just looked at it for awhile. I just held it there and I laid it across my bed and I just stared at it for a few minutes; just because as a kid growing up this is the ultimate, ultimate in basketball.

Collinsworth: Where does the patriotism come from inside of you? Historically, what is it?

Kobe: Well, you know it’s just our country, it’s... we believe is the greatest country in the world. It has given us so many great opportunities, and it’s just a sense of pride that you have; that you say "You know what? Our country is the best!"

Collinsworth: Is that a ‘cool’ thing to say, in this day and age? That you love your country, and that you’re fighting for the red, white and blue? It seems sort of like a day gone by(?)

Kobe: No, it’s a cool thing for me to say. I feel great about it, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I mean, this is a tremendous honor.
Our country is in a world of hurt with more and more visible people (entertainers, commentators, "news" anchors) spewing this line of thinking- questioning the greatness of our country and implying through his verbiage and tone that it's not cool to support a country that has given us so much.

Chris Collinsworth can suck it.




NBC must pick the bottom 20th of journalism classes to host their shows. All together their IQs don't match Dick Ebersol's hat size. And don't get me started on Fox!
