We mentioned this briefly yesterday, but it kind of looks like the story has a little bit of legs under it now, so let's dive back in. ESPN "analyst" Michael Irvin, appearing disheveled (or as disheveled as anyone can sound on the radio), was on the Dan Patrick Show on Monday, and apparently he had some strange things to say about Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, seemingly claiming that he had some slave blood in him, or something. The Big Lead has the pseudo-transcript:
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, along the just-popping-by Keith Olbermann, attempted to help out Irvin by changing the subject, but there's no helping Michael Irvin. You can find the audio if you're an Insider. We're not sure what the hell Irvin's talking about ... but, of course, nothing new there.
