Dana Jacobson to Jesus Christ: F%$k You!

by at . Comments

Kelly Tilghman has company in the world of inappropriate announcers.

ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson was reportedly intoxicated at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City for colleague Mike Golic. As a Michigan alum who disliked Golic's university of choice, Notre Dame, it was only natural that Jacobson would rant:

F--- Notre Dame! F--- Touchdown Jesus! F--- Jesus!

That last part was especially harsh. It's resulted in a one-week suspension and the following statement from Dana Jacobson:

"I am sorry. My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words. I also deeply regret the embarrassment I've caused ESPN and Mike and Mike.

"My actions at the roast were inappropriate and in no way represent who I am. I won't make excuses, but I do hope I can be forgiven for a poor lack of judgment."

Somewhere, Valerie Begue doesn't see the big deal.

Ms Jackobson's comment were at a celebrity roast. She was not called to the podium unexpectedly to speak. She was a booked ahead of time to speak at the roast. Her comments were certainley prepared well beforehand. There is no way a professional anchorwoman would wing it when it comes to giving a public speech. Her being drunk is irrelevent since she prepared her words in a sober state.

Fire her. She does not need to polute more people. This world needs JESUS CHRIST, the ONLY savor. People remember, one day every knee will bow and confes that JESUS CHRIST is the Savior of the world. Did we not have enough of 911, earthquakes, fires..... How much more violence, pain.... Look at Jesus find him, be SAVED now and for eternity.

First, let me say that I am a Christian. Ms. Jacobson's comments, in whatever context she may have said them, come from her lips and mouth. Follow the sequence here, she thought the statements and then she spoke the statements. Our actions is a testament to where our heart is. Secondly, I accept Ms. Jacobson's apology, no matter how sincere it may or may not have been. I will not be the one that will judge her in the end. You see, "One day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess", that Jesus Christ is Lord. So as a Christian, I forgive Ms. Jacobson for the remarks and I will continue to pray for her. This is exactly what Jesus died for on the cross!

She clearly is an Anti-Christian. BTW, this (i.e. the denigration of different races, religions, and creeds) seems to be a pattern of behavior with ESPN anchors.

Dana should be fired. She would have been if she had used the forbidden "N" word; or used some other racial slur. How can a country such as this look the other way when a person who is in the public's eye slurs Diety? Her apology certainly did not sound sincere and I doubt that she was even the author. Fire he.

How about F**k Holden Caulfield from "Catcher in the Rye"? A very poorly put together book was constructed some years ago(featuring a very dynamic main character named Jesus) to explain away the bad things that were going on at the time and now we have fire people over speaking this character's name in a bad light? Give me a break...and F**k you!!!

Dana Jacobson won't get fired. She's the hottest chick on ESPN and their ratings would tumble. Have to admit that she is evil, though.
