Think he could/should have chosen a better venue for this?

    Thank you, Bob Costas
  7. thwhiteelephant said: In Denmark where civilian arms are illegal, nothing like this happens. Alex Blagg put it well: “You never wake up to stories about how someone with a bunch of guns saved lives. Fuck your second amendment” Undiplomatic but true-thx for a great blog

  16. poetfire answered: he used a “teachable moment”—— perfect venue. But of course he will suffer consequences

  18. kingraerae answered: He should be quiet Javon would have killed her w/o a gun anyway. Inanimate objects don’t kill people. It’s what people do with them that kill

  26. houseoforange said: Thanks for sharing this news, by the way!
  27. houseoforange answered: I think I saw a quote where he asked when the appropriate time would be. Good point, Costas.
  28. thejokell answered: If it turns out Jovan Belcher had brain damage from football will Bob Costas call for “Football control” laws?
