Dangit Joe, you had to drop an “r” bomb, and you had to make us highlight it.
The Baltimore Ravens are busy preparing for Super Bowl XLVII, which means news conference on top of news conference for the players.
What that also means is chance after chance for a player to drop something that turns some heads, or the media will make you believe is the worst thing in the world.
On Monday, Flacco was asked about the Super Bowl being located in New York City next year, in which he responded:
“I think it’s retarded,” Flacco said at his Super Bowl news conference Monday, via the Denver Post. “I probably shouldn’t say that. I think it’s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than that I don’t really like the idea. I don’t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather.”
So the fuss is over his use of the word “retarded” to describe a cold-weather Super Bowl. Well Joe, worry no more, we have a complete list of words for you to use next time you are put in this predicament over a “retarded” situation.
- Half-baked (yes, the decision was apparently made after Goodell did a bit of smoking)
