She probably didn't say it...

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.
(Above is a picture of Jacobson, mid-tirade, from the AC Press. Below is another, from si.com.)

GET OVER IT...the woman had too much to drink and said some incredibly stupid things. ESPN punished her as they saw fit. If Jesus could forgive the thieves and prostitutes, who in the heck is this guy to say that ESPN has to fire her. Talk about ego...

Christ was a Middle Eastern Jew. He most certainly wasn't white.

I beleive you actually meant African Jew . Jesus was born in Africa , so , why do so many wish to ignore that fact ?

Africa includes at least part of the Middle East. The Middle East is a region, and the people there are of many hues. No one is ignoring Africa.

Here's a factoid to the revisionist historians who are trying to descibe Jesus' ethnicity: North Africans are caucasins. Jews and East Indians are caucasians. Arabs are caucasians. Negroes are Sub-saharan Africans. They are from south of the Sahara Desert. Jesus was not from south of the Sahara.

Caucasian? I supposed you think he had blond hair and blue eyes.

The guy who mows my neighbor's lawn is named Jesus, and he looks like a Mexican.

I think the second picture looks super-imposed. In other words, fake.
