“And they all wear…my God…with the little water bottle in the back and their stupid hats and their shiny shorts, they are the same disgusting posers that in the middle of a snow storm come out with cross country skiing on your block. Run them down. I don’t take my car and ride on the sidewalk because I understand that’s not for my car. Why do these people think that these roads were built for bicycles?
They dare you to run them down.And then when you do, they get angry. What is that about?
And so you tap them. I’m not saying you kill them. I’m saying just tap them. Tap them once.If you’re not rubbin’, you’re not racing right? So you pop them a little bit and see what happens.
…and somehow the law does not allow you to run them down.
I have a large powerful car compared to your stupid little bicycle.”
Advocating violence against any group is wrong and not something to joke about on sports talk radio. But with the number of cars on the road and the increasing prevalence of road rage towards cyclists, Kornheiser has crossed the line. I won’t sit back and ignore someone who jokes around about murdering me or my friends.
Run them down? Really?
At the very least, I am submitting a complaint to ESPN management. What are you going to do?
