Mike Ditka Had To Apologize For Using The Word “Polack”

What better way to start 2012 on the right foot than with another awkward apology from an ESPN personality!  Evidently, Mike Ditka wasn’t watching fellow ESPN contemporary Matt Millen during the 2010 NFL Draft.  Then, Matt Millen had to awkwardly come back on air with his tail between his legs to apologize for calling Ron Jaworski a “polack.”  Yesterday, during ESPN’s morning SportsCenter, Mike Ditka said something to the effect of Colts QB Dan Orlovsky having “a good polack name.”  If you want to get nitpicky about it, I suppose Ditka didn’t call Orlovsky a “polack” but you can bet that’s still one of the hundreds of words that will cause ESPN’s PC siren to go off any time it’s said on the airwaves.  As for Ditka’s apology, I’ll give it an 8.5 on the Lee Corso Apology Scale.  Happy New Year from Bristol HR
