Dana Jacobson update: Suspended

UPDATE #3: Visual proof (no pun intended, I promise) of Jacobson swilling right from the bottle! Also, seems that there will be a protest at ESPN HQ.

Looks like Ms. Belivdere, aka Dana Jacobson, has been sent to the pine for a week to dry out and rue her poor choices in words and actions at the Mike and Mike roast last week.

At the roast, Jacobson made a rambling speech that included vulgar references about Notre Dame. Jacobson is a Michigan graduate, and she and Golic, a former Irish defensive lineman, often have exchanged barbs about the rivalry between the schools. One eyewitness labeled it an "embarrassing display," and a newspaper account said the crowd booed Jacobson.

While it's fun to mock the drunken ramblings of the talking heads on TV... nevermind, it's just fun. I'll spare ya the high-road thoughts.

UPDATE: It's all fun and games when mocking drunk ramblings of a sports figure, until it's made public how dumb, ill-advised, morally bankrupt those ramblings really were.

Jacobson's comments at the Roast have been further exposed, setting religious peace back a few decades. Nice work, Dana. No matter what you think, no matter how much alcohol you have consumed, there is no excuse for dropping the F-bomb like this:

Jacobson, reportedly intoxicated, was speaking at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City, N.J., when she unleashed a profane tirade, saying, "F--- Notre Dame," "F--- Touchdown Jesus" and finally "F--- Jesus."
Now, I think Jacobson is Jewish (as am I) and that sort of diatribe is unacceptable. I don't want to get even further off-topic, but that's reprehensible. Had someone said that against Jews, or Muslims, or another race, she's be fired immediately and probably blackballed from the industry for a good long time.

Upon further review, seems a week off was a light sentence.

Update #2: Shaq's onto me ("celebrity roast" links here). Uh oh! Probably a phony blog but we'll welcome the Diesel to these parts anytime.

Based on what happens after something like this with other celebs and personalities, she'll soon admit to an alcohol addiction and check herself into "rehab".

Against Jews? She said fuck Jesus. Wasn't he a Jew? This is absolutely stupid, it was a roast. I agree with what she said anyway. Notre Dame sucks and Jesus is make believe. So she gets suspended and ridiculed for saying fuck a mythical being? I sure hope no one says anything bad about Humpty Dumpty or Santa Claus. Political correctness needs to go.
