Gus Johnson Apologizes for Comment

November 4, 2009
gus johnson n pat

Work for the Knicks?? hahahahaha!

Gus Johnson for those who are not familiar is a play by play sportscaster for CBS Sports, Showtime, The MSG Network, The Big Ten Network and Strikeforce mixed martial arts. He is well known for his loud screaming during March Madness and T.O.N.Y Sports loves him including myself!

Gus recently apologized for making a controversial comment about Titans running back Chris Johnson this past Sunday as he broke for a 52 yard TD run.

“He’s got getting away from the cops speed!!” Gus excitedly yelled while making the call for the Titans Jaguars game on CBS.  Gus who is of African American descent gave this statement to USA Today yesterday:

“If there is a perception of  racism in this analogy, it is not coming from me. People of all races have run from the law. However to those offended , I apologize.”

The apology is more than likely coming off the heels of Bob Griese’s recent suspension by ESPN when he had the following to say about race car driver Juan Pablo Montoya,

“he’s out having a taco”

WOW, that was pretty ignorant on Bob’s part being that Juan is Colombian and not Mexican but Gus, I’m not mad at you and neither is anyone from T.O.N.Y Sports homie, keep yelling at those games and tell MSG that you need to replace Mike Breen for all home Knick games!
