A clever headline in bad taste has cost an ESPN staffer his job.....The reference to Knick phenom Jeremy Lin as a "Chink in the Armor" following a poor performance and a loss was not the brightest move. It was on a website for a few minutes and the Network apologized....
Whatever happened to getting called into the boss's office for a reaming and a "don't do it again". Now someone has to be sacrificed on the altar of liberalism ? No 'teachable moments" for the fired staffer.
As for Lin, he led the Knicks today in a comeback win over the Mavericks.....The 23 year old Harvard grad has been a thrill for Knicks fans.
