Every time NBC sportscaster Bob Costas trots out his ill-informed, ill-considered opinions on gun control, his bias against [mostly] African American athletes comes into sharper focus. The latest installment of “Whose Gun Rights Are They Anyway?” has Bob flapping his anti-gun gums at Piers Morgan, the ex-pat CNN talkmeister whose understanding of the Second Amendment is about as comprehensive as Shimrit As‘ understanding of barodynamics. This time ’round, Costas has modified his “guns suck” remarks to “it’s infinitely more likely that something bad will happen if you’re armed than something good will happen.” I guess those 1m-plus defensive gun uses per year in the U.S. don’t figure. At least not in Bob’s world.
Home Gun Control Bob Costas: To Infinitely! And BEYOND!
Bob can’t do math, if he’s using figures such as infinity.
I guess that means that cops and the military should not bear arms, because only bad things happen when they do. And if a criminal is shot or killed while entering a house other than his own, that’s bad too. How does that work?
To hell with his math skills! He knows beauty when he sees it.
Is it sad that I had never heard of Bob Costas before this whole fiasco?
You and me both, stranger.
You didn’t miss anything before and you wont miss anything after Costas stops his blathering. He is just another over paid talking head.
have you missed his obnoxious in informed coverage of the past couple olympics? not only does BC think hes a hoplophobic prosthelytizer, but also an expert on competitive swimming as well. Like i needed, yet another reason to dislike him, this is it.
Not really, he’s not a very good sports commentator.
Am I the only one who thinks infinitely is a bit out of proportion? I mean, there are no hard data because Defensive Gun Uses aren’t all that popular in the media – must have something to do with not supporting their agenda.
That said, there are plenty of stories out there. I found this earlier in a different article, but it really is perfect here – the November 2012 Defensive Gun Use Report:
Did the limey ask him about alcohol consumption to excess on the job or in the locker room or are we supposed to think there is this big problem with guns in the stadium?
What a pair of tools.
Bob Costas, a midget and a Douchebag all in one.
Of course, Bob fails to see that, if you’re armed, often nothing ‘good’ will happen because there is a generalized feeling in the criminal population that you may be armed and therefore no ‘bad’ circumstances ever occur. In other words, we’ll never know how many ‘good’ things happen because they occur as simply nothing happening.
It’s Piers. Piers Morgan.
You should “delete” all of these threads about this asshat!
All you are doing is giving him more internet hits!
C’mon, over and done with……
Robert, how often do your commenters demand that you delete entire posts? Is this a new fad?
Actually, I think Costas has it exactly right. I loved that he said “it’s infinitely more likely that something bad will happen if you’re armed than something good will happen.” I myself, being infinitely more reasonable, usually just say “much more likely.”
I have a scientific question.
How did they fit that much douchebag in a man that small?
I think we need to quit feeding the troll. If we ignore him, Bob might go away.
The English tried that with Hitler once. Did not work out. (No I am on comparing Costas to Hitler, even though I can create parallels.)
Costas is stupider than a moron with a brain injury and doesn’t even realize it!!! How could that much stupid be stuffed in that small of a cranium!!
I bet that the “thing” on his head that looks like hair is actually a brainwashing alien parrot disguised as hair, invented by Rahm Emmanuel hisself.
Ok ok STOP ALREADY!!!!
I keep beating my head into my monitor when this guy opens his mouth.. I now have a splitting headache and feeling nauseous.
It’s infinitely more likely that something bad will happen to your brain if you pay any attention to that [email protected] than something good will happen.
ah ha, I see what you did there!
It’s also infinitely more likely that something bad will happen to your assailant if you are (legally) armed.
if they enforce not carrying at the stadium or practice facility as much as they enforce the prohibiting of steroids, then they all have a gun at the facilities.
I love to hear this guy dribble on, it give the Red Eye crew a good 3 minutes of Costas lambasting everytime he opens his Progressive yap!
By the way did anyone notice how contrived that “interview” was?
It was completely rehearsed with that super close-up of Costas as he read the final lines off the prompter!
Welcome to Piers Morgan. He makes Larry King look like a CIA interrogator, and King could softball with the best of them.
As you might guess, me and CNN don’t spend much time together.
This just in, Bob Costas sees a gun in a movie, immediately assumes its real and runs out of his home theater.
With the Clackamas Town Center shooting Boasting Bob Costas will be crowing his vindication.
Im surprised you bother to listen to that moron!
Shimrit As is a mighty fine looking woman. Her parents DNA clearly had a strong working knowledge of geometry going on when they combined to build her.
It’s a given that your average football fan is probably not some left-wing anti-gun vegan tree-hugger. Rather, I suspect your average football fan has a higher than average gun ownership vs. the population. I’m surprised by now that Bob hasn’t been told to can it.
Is it just me, or does this guy wear the same clothes in every interview? What’s he hiding in that particular sport coat?
More hot Israeli chicks!
I would like to see NFL Players stand up for themselves and tell this POS Costas where to go.
I hope the NRA has been making efforts to contact the Players and inform them of what the the Second Amendment means (incase they don’t know).
I know it isn’t firearms related but here is a little something to make you laugh I hope!!!
A 6 year old and a 4 year old are raking the yard.
The 6 year old asks, “You know what? I think it’s about time we started learning to cuss.”The 4 year old nods his head in approval.
The 6 year old continues,”When we go in for breakfast, I’m gonna say something with hell and you say something with ass.”
The 4 year old agrees with enthusiasm.
When the mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 6 year old what he wants for breakfast, he replies, “Aw, hell, Mom, I guess I’ll have some Cheerios.
He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up,and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit,slapping his rear with every step.
His mom locks him in his room and shouts, “You can stay there until I let you out!”
She then comes back downstairs, looks at the 4 year old and asks with a stern voice, “And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?”
“I don’t know,” he blubbers, “but you can bet your fat ass it won’t be Cheerios!”
Hope you laughed and have Great Weekend!!!
