This week brought us a plethora FAILS ranging from the questionable Pacquiao/Bradley ruling (…or so I hear…I know nothing about boxing) to the Lance Armstrong doping charges. However, it was a few interesting things said by two different individuals that caught my attention this week.
First up: David Stern. Yeah, so while on the Jim Rome Show, NBA Commish David Stern was being grilled about whether or not he thought the NBA draft was fixed. To which he responds:
“Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”
Obviously, he was trying to prove a point – that if the media starts raising “ridiculous” questions that the public will start to think it’s true and that asking if the draft was fixed was “cheap”. OK… I’m sure there might have been a better way to say that, David, and I’m sure A LOT of listeners would not have gotten the point and probably googled whether or not Jim Rome beats his wife.
Next up: Bryce Harper. During an interview earlier this week, the Nationals’ super-hyped rookie was asked if he would drink alcohol while in Canada (since Harper is only 19 and the legal Canadian drinking age is 18).
