I'm a real sports fan. I mean diehard.

There's not too many sports I don't watch, but I can say with all honesty that football is my favorite. I can watch football all day if you let me.

My ritual s to start with the pre-game shows. I normally watch the one on Fox with Curt Menefee, Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Terry Bradhshaw.

Admittedly, I liked the show better when J.B. was hosting, but Menefee has done a decent job.

Well a little controversy struck my favorite show, when Terry Bradshaw was giving highlights from some of the games that were going on around the league.

Bradshaw is definitely on of those people who's known to open mouth and insert foot.

He was giving the play-by-play of the Dolphins/Colts game when me made a very racially insensitive remark about Reggie Bush chasing a bucket of chicken.

Here's how USAToday is reporting the story:

Yukking it up with co-host Jimmy Johnson while showing a Reggie Bush touchdown run from the first half of the Dolphins-Colts game, Bradshaw commented that the Miami running back was "chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day," leading to guffaws from Bradshaw and Johnson and an awkward groan from co-host Curt Menefee.

I honestly didn't know what to say when I heard the remark. I think I was more in shock than anything.

Expect to be hearing an apology soon.
