When Euphemisms Go Tragically Wrong
July 9, 2009
I don’t normally post things just for the sake of humor but this was sufficiently dark to warrant an exception.
I am a fan of the NFL on Facebook and today “NFL” posted a link to a video about QB Steve McNair’s recent murder. The post’s byline read (only visible on the Facebook feed, unfortunately):
NFL.com senior columnist Thomas George was granted rare access to Steve McNair during the quarterback’s time in college at Alcorn State. Here are his thoughts on McNair’s tragic passing.
I think that it’s just a little crass to take a dig at McNair’s playing ability so soon after his death.
