Michael Irvin is a Racist Moron

This one takes no explaining... What an idiot.

The Big Lead got ahold of this one.

On Monday, Irvin went on the Dan Patrick radio show. If you've got ESPN insider, you can listen to the audio here. Irvin showed up late; he sounded a bit off kilter. Before long, he was incoherently babbling in a manner that once got Jimmy the Greek fired from CBS.

At about the 3:42 mark in the above link, Irvin mentions that Tony Romo outplayed Peyton Manning Sunday, and then says, "... [there must be] some brothers in that line somewhere ... (laughs to himself) somewhere there are some brothers ... I don't know who saw what, where .... [maybe] his great, great, great, great Grandma ran over in the hood or something went down ... (laughter)"

Dan Patrick, sensing disaster, jumps in and says, `that's the only way to be a great athlete?'

Irvin comes back with, "No, that's not the only way ... but it's certainly one way ... [maybe his] great, great, great, great Grandma pulled one of them studs up outta the barn [and said] `come here for a second' ... back in the day ...(more sinister laughter)"

Patrick steps in to diffuse the situation by saying, `Alex Haley in `Roots' on the Dan Patrick Show ...'

Irvin, who will certainly will be ticketed for bojangling by Jason Whitlock for this outburst, kept cackling and came back with, 'something like that,' followed by another devious laugh.

Patrick's tag team partner, Keith Olbermann, then jumps in to avert further disaster and says, `Let's steer out of this skid' and changes the subject.

Can this be the final straw with this idiot? Can ESPN finally spare us from his inane ramblings every Sunday/Monday? If ESPN had any balls, they'd fire Irvin the Greek immediately.
