ESPN’s Drunken Dana Docked Week By Network

The CHICAGO TRIBUNE, via THE BIG LEAD, reports today “Sources have confirmed that (Dana) Jacobson, a co-host of ‘First Take’ on ESPN2, currently is serving a one-week suspension because of her behavior at a Jan. 11 roast for ESPN Radio personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic at Atlantic City, N.J.

While declining to confirm Jacobson had been suspended, ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said, ‘Her actions and comments were inappropriate and we’ve dealt with it.‘”

Dealt with it how? By getting her better material? That was the only problem we had with her alleged comments, which were, though foul, somewhat less than original.

Earlier, Jacobsen apologized to the Catholic League for those off-color comments, which included: “F— Notre Dame” and “F— Touchdown Jesus“, before closing with, “F— Jesus!”

Well, with the week-long suspension, at least she now has that extra time she said she needed to do her hair. And search for what we hope and pray is cell phone video of the incident (this is all we have so far from the roast).

And is it just us, or are the Catholics a little sensitive this week? God knows they don’t get to fire back very often - but they’ll never catch up, at least in our lifetime.
