ESPN Columnist Suspended for Hitler Comment

ESPN's Jemele Hill (whomever the hell that is) was suspended for invoking Hitler in a recent column. Hill said that rooting for the Celtics was a lot like believing that Hitler was a victim.

That's not offensive, that's just unfunny. And it would barely register here at THN.

If you are going to make a comment comparing the Celtics to Nazi Germany, at least make it a bit smarter than just throwing out a Hitler comment. That's so Sports Dork, that it's not funny or clever.

Besides, Hill could have gone a lot of different ways. For instance, the only reason Al Queda doesn't bomb Boston is because they don't want America to cheer for them. Or in Fail-Safe, the Russians are given the option of bombing Boston and New York but choose NYC so they can suffer twice. Once for bombing New York, and two for allowing Boston to survive.

But expecting ESPN reporters to be better is foolish.

He should have said rooting for the Celtics is like rooting for Chris Benoit's pillow.

She should have said that rooting for the Celtics is like rooting for the dealer to draw a natural.
