Former NFL quarterback and CBS NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made an observation about New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (via ProFootballTalk, emphasis mine):
“If you watched Mark Sanchez the last month of the season, he was like a chihuahua standing on Madison Avenue and 36th Street entering the Midtown Tunnel, eyes bigger than you-know-what, and just so shaky,” Esiason said.
In the event the P.C. police had an issue with Esiason’s reference to a breed of dog that bears a Mexican name, given that Sanchez is Mexican-American, Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com has cleared things up by contacting Esiason for a clarification.
“I chose a small dog that always looks shaken and has big eyes, and doesn’t like big things — a chihuahua,” Esiason said. “It’s a skittish dog and he’s been a skittish player.”
This stupid country.
