Last Sunday, Gary Peterson of the Bay Area News Group fired off this line in an otherwise straight-up assessment of Raiders quarterback Jamarcus Russell:
Or maybe Russell, rumored to have spent part of the offseason at a clinic being treated for lethargy addiction, shows up for minicamp weighing 230 sculpted pounds and ready to work twice as hard as anyone else in the building. Sorry, didn’t mean to make you blow coffee out your nose first thing in the morning — just trying to cover all bases.
Though Peterson was trying to make a joke, at least one person didn’t get it. With that person happening to be a prominent member of the Bay Area electronic media.
