The New York Giants have had a terrible season and a particularly terrible week. Despite this, they are destroying the Broncos in Denver. Al Michaels set out to make this very point mid-way through the third quarter and somehow steered the conversation toward disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Why? No one knows.
Michaels’ ill-advised joke will have significant ripple effects in the outrage pool, and it’s easy to see why.
Certainly an interesting choice when the cost-benefit analysis is considered.
UPDATE: Michaels offered a swift apology.
