Joe Flacco who is nicknamed Joe Cool, lost his recently when asked about a cold weather Super Bowl being played in 2014 in New York City.

Flacco’s response for the game being played in such conditions,”that’s retarded.”  “I think its stupid.”

Flacco caught a bit of flak for that yesterday and today he calmly backtracked, and apologized according to

“Obviously, it was a bad choice of words. I wish I hadn’t said it,” Flacco said Tuesday at Media Day. “I have a great relationship with Special Olympics back in Baltimore and have had one for many years. I didn’t mean to offend anybody, but I definitely apologize for it.”

Joe’s choice of words weren’t that serious to me.  Retarded is not even used clinically anymore.  The proper word used now to describe someone who could be considered slow is Mentally Challenged.

Flacco does a ton of work for the special olympics, so I’ll digress from passing judgement.
