Real Sports?: Racist Bryant Gumbel Attacks Ann Coulter on Sports Show

By Debbie Schlussel
He hates Israel. He barely likes America. He hates White people (except the ones he has sex with). He hates the Winter Olympics because they have too many White people.
And now, add Ann Coulter to the list of non-sports-related targets of Bryant Gumbel’s hate-filled rants on “Real Sports,” his “sports” show on HBO.
USA Today’s Michael Hiestand reports that Bumbel, er . . . Gumbel, says he likes watching World Cup soccer even thoush “in soccer they score about as often as Ann Coulter makes sense.”
It’s not that the comment is that offensive. It’s that the creeping political commentary in the world of sports commentary is getting obnoxious. Gumbel’s show is a sports show, not a political one. His ranting on all things political is irritating and annoying. If you can’t talk about the game or the athlete, shut up. But Gumbel–Arrogance in Chief–won’t shut up. He can’t help himself.

Chicken Gumbel Rants About Ann Coulter

We wonder where his colleague and “Real Sports” reporter Bernard Goldberg is . . . when it comes to Bryant Gumbel. Easily, Gumbel qualifies for one of Goldberg’s critiques of media lunatics and wackos. But he never gets such recognition by Goldberg.
We can’t say we blame Bernie. After all, once he was outed as a centrist and kicked out of PC CBS News, the only TV outlet he’s got left is this gig with egomaniac Gumbel. He doesn’t want to lose that, too.
By the way, we’ve had our own run-in with mucho-egoed Gumbel (at Detroit Metro Airport). And we like Ann Coulter much more than soccer and Bryant Gumbel combined.

Awww, Debbie, please—-
As both an officer in the Army Reserves, political centrist and former soccer player in college, I do take some offense at your decision to combine my sport and BG in the same sentence. I can appreciate that the game is not to everyone’s liking…but there are some of us in the US that can appreciate the intricacies and stamina of the game.

“…but there are some of us in the US that can appreciate the intricacies and stamina of the game.”
You and 3 others.
At least the sport world doesn’t much have to worry about the even worse Keith Olbermann much these days.

Just imagine if Mr. Cafe Aulet’s employer was outspoken about black males being unable to perform as well as white males in TV journalism while at the same time “doin’ the sistas.” Think there would be an uproar bout that? Yeah, thought so. Hey Gumball, GET BENT!

Poor white people always on the receiving end of racism! cry me a river! so what, he made a comment about a klan woman. That makes him racist? get a life!

No, his attack on the “klan” woman doesn’t make him racist, if you would read the article, they were refering him to being racist because of his racist remark about “too many white people at the winter olypics, reminds” him of “the republican convention”. And we all know since some white people have done bad things all white people are bad, ie, racism.
