A story in today's Atlantic City Press does a pretty good job of showing how an internet rumor that ESPN's Dana Jacobson said "F- Jesus" in the midst of a drunken anti-Notre Dame tirade has spiraled well beyond the facts.
It seems from what I could tell that a Chicago Tribune blog started the talk that she said "F- Jesus," but considering how many people were there at the Atlantic City roast, it sure seems like someone would remember that. And nobody's coming forward to say they did.
I feel a little sorry for Jacobson, who's gaining a sort of infamy from her bit of drunken idiocy.
