[title from Change of Subject, the blog of columnist Eric Zorn from The Chicago Tribune. ]
Today’s fine line was uttered by ESPN’s Dan Patrick during his nationally syndicated sports talk radio show. On the subject of star athletes who constantly feel the need to ‘keep it real’ during pre/postgame comments:
“You know, I can appreciate candor as much as the next guy, but keeping it real has its limits. If your wife puts on an outfit that makes her look fat, and she asks you how it looks, you can’t tell me you’re gonna keep it real then. ‘Cause if you do, you’ll be ‘real’ tired of sleepin’ on the couch.”
As Kornheiser would say, that was clahhssic.
