The Guy Who Accidentally Sank Jimmy The Greek's Career Has Died
His name was Ed Hotaling, and he certainly had no intention of making Jimmy The Greek a truly tragic figure of foot-in-mouth self-destruction.
But he was the guy, holding the mic as a TV reporter in Washington D.C., when Jimmy decided to expound on the superiority of the black athlete, slave breeding, and the need for white guy affirmative action in coaching.
Hotaling was a former CBS Middle East bureau chief and horse racing author. He was 75. Don't blame him. He was just doing his job.
Meanwhile, for a very funny listen, here's Opie and Anthony with the late (and great) Patrice O'Neal, trying to "retro-fit" The Greek's out-of-bounds comments to conform to current standards.
Yeah, good luck with that!
