I have heard players describe by ESPN analysts over the years as……

Thugs, criminals, malcontents, divas, hood, ignorant, dumb, stupid, divas , ignorant and one time a b*tch, but none of those analysts were force to apologize on air?

Hmmmmm I wonder why.

Jalen Rose, the former NBA player who is now an ESPN analyst, appeared on Mike and Mike in the Morning to talk basketball but said at the outset of his appearance that he wanted to weigh in on Gronkowski first. In hindsight, he and ESPN probably wish he had stuck to basketball.

“Forgive this term because I didn’t make it up: He was having a good time. He was white boy wasted. He was having a good time,” Rose said.

That was about two and a half hours into the four-hour Mike and Mike show, and at the very end of the program Rose returned to the studio to apologize. It appeared that Rose (and hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic) were being hurried into getting an apology onto the air before the show ended, although Rose and Golic both laughed through the apology.

“You guys got me in trouble,” Rose said. “Earlier in today’s show we were talking about the Patriots’ post-game party and I made some comments that other people — some people — took as insensitive remarks, so for those that took it that way I definitely apologize. Pretty sure I always say things that upset people, get under people’s skin. I guess today was no different. So I’m sorry for the pushback.”

Basically what Rose is saying is whoever was offended hasn’t had sex this decade.

Stop being so sensitive to to everything.

Here is the truth.

GRONK is white and he was wasted at the party, that makes him white boy wasted. If he was black, he would have been black boy wasted, what is the big deal?

Rose was making a joke, get over it. No wonder everyone prefers Dan Patrick over Mike and Mike, it is because you guys are lame and is a show that men only over the age 40 who have way too much porn on their laptop watch.

Get over yourself.
