    Default Can't Wait For The Vid To Show Up On TMZ: ESPN Anchor Get's Drunk, Insults N.D.

    ESPN suspends Dana Jacobson for remarks made at roast

    By Andrea Adelson, Orlando Sentinel
    January 24, 2008
    Another member of the media is in trouble for making inappropriate comments. Only this time, the subject was religion.

    ESPN personality Dana Jacobson has been disciplined for remarks she made Jan. 11 at a roast in Atlantic City, N.J., for colleagues Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic. According to various reports, Jacobson appeared inebriated when she used an expletive in connection with Notre Dame, Touchdown Jesus and Jesus.

    Jacobson, co-host of "First Take" on ESPN2, apologized in a statement and said, "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 won't make excuses for my behavior, but I do hope I can be forgiven for such a poor lack of judgment."

    Her remarks come on the heels of two highly publicized media incidents that dealt with race.

    Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman was suspended for two weeks after saying in a broadcast on Jan. 4 that young golfers should "lynch [Tiger Woods] in a back alley" because of his dominance.

    Last week, Golfweek fired editor Dave Seanor after the magazine featured a hanging noose on the cover with the headline "Caught in a noose."

    "People who are in the public eye who say stupid things are going to have stupid things reported all over the place," said Dick Crepeau, a history professor at the University of Central Florida with a specialty in sports and religion.

    "It's the world we live in. There's a lot of sensitivity in both of those areas because those areas deal with touchy and personal issues."

    Why would you even say "**** Jesus." I mean, what in the hell would possess you say that? Idiot.

    i wont defend her . i dont agree with what she said. but if your at a roast arent you expecting something thats going to be in bad taste. ive seen some of those roasts that they have had on comedy central and man those people are brutal . i ve heard about those friar's club roast and they say you better be thick skinned and be able to take a joke.
    they hate if your the same , and they hate you if your different- evh

    Why did the Golf Channel mishap make all the news but I have to find out about this on a VH message board?

    What type of "roast" was this? Was this like a Fryar's Club Roast? Was it like some of the roasts on Comedy Central?

    A roast is suppose to be derogatory. Just because you say things, doesn't mean you mean them. You are suppose to say crazy things.

    Was this suppose to air on television somewhere?

    Sorry, if it was one of those where everyone is drinking and saying anything (like what I picture a roast where you can talk about anything), this is BS. I don't care what was said.

    jesus jokes are funny. sorry but they are...and catholics and other christians have taught me all of the jokes I know.

    this is yet another example of contrived social outcry and righteous indignation for the sake of itself.

    If ESPN did not discipline her, would this still be a story?
    And that story is very vague regarding what was actually said by her. Does anyone know what exactly she said and/or how she said it?

    They should've lynched Martin Luther King.












    Just joking. That's funny, right? hahaha? Anyone?

    There are some things that are in just poor taste. Besides, they were roasting Mike Golic, not Jesus. If you want, fuck Mike Golic, not Jesus.

    She said:

    "Fuck Notre Dame!"

    "Fuck Touchdown Jesus!"

    pause...

    "Fuck Jesus!"


    Then she got booed off stage.

    Yet before that...This is how it happened:

    ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson made an absolute fool of herself, swilling vodka from a Belvedere bottle, mumbling along and cursing like a sailor as Mike & Mike rested their heads in their hands in embarrassment. According to reports, Dana reportedly made some offensive remarks about the school as well as the famous image known as "Touchdown Jesus" that were clumsy attempts to poke fun at Mike Golic's days at Notre Dame. She reportedly said, "F**k Touchdown Jesus!" [Comedian Eddie] Griffin came to the podium to defend her after she was booed by the crowd. [Comedian Jeff] Ross eventually had to pull her off stage, too.

    http://www.postchronicle.com/news/or...12126329.shtml

    This account leaves out her stumbling to the mike, swinging the vodka bottle and having no memory of how she left the stage. Classy.
