ESPN suspends Dana Jacobson for drunken speech during a celebrity roast


Recommended Posts

ESPN suspended sports announcer Dana Jacobson for a week due to her behavior at a Jan. 11 roast for ESPN Radio personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic at Atlantic City, N.J.

At the roast, Jacobson made a drunken, rambling speech that included vulgar references about Notre Dame. Jacobson said "F*** Notre Dame," "F*** Touchdown Jesus," and finally "F*** Jesus."

Jacobson is a Michigan graduate, and she and Golic, a former Irish defensive lineman, often have exchanged rants about the rivalry between the schools.

A newspaper account said the crowd booed Jacobson. Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis also was in attendance.

Golic and Greenberg are the hosts of ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning" radio show.

Maybe Dana got confused and thought she was doing the roast at the Friar's club.

Haha. Alcohol, your best friend and worst enemy. On a much smaller scale I can sympathize. Many times I have wanted to crawl into a hole due to flashbacks of things I said/did the night before.

My advice for her is to "go to rehab" or "find jesus". I've heard that makes everything go away.

i find it interesting that people find Jesus in rehab...i didnt even know he had a problem!

The one question I want to ask Dana is

Hey Dana, why the long face?

I just checked her out on Google Image Search because I didn't really know which one she was.....Man, that face is like Herman Munster long............

I love how all these people are calling for a boycott.

Mainly because they were the same people that were saying Muslims were all extremists for calling for the firing of that one cartoonist, and the fact that it really goes against all Christian teachings for trying to ruin someone for mistakenly making fun of jesus.

I heard that the mask in the "Scream" movies was modeled on her face, just shrunk down to a more realistic size.:P

You're generalizing again.
