Excuse me while I puke Hispanic heritage month NFL

... NFL, you GOT to be f*ing kidding me...

..and I thought I was annoyed by the pink PR crap last Sunday...

Ok, so it is Hispanic heritage month or whatever... I get it... Obama comes out before and reminds us that "todos somos Americanos" ... ok, cute.. but:
Marc Freakin' Anthony singing the National Anthem?
Hank Williams Jr. singing "Estas listo para el football"? With Gloria Stefan?
The referee calling penalties in Spanish?
Commercials in Spanish?

Come on, NFL... don't offend my intelligence. We all know that you don't care about white or black or brown or yellow or red... you care about green, and we will give you our green as long as you put a good product on the field; so don't go pretending you give a damn where I come from.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

The NFL could be onto something - we need more latina cheerleaders

I don't know
I see a lot of the Hispanic community with NFL jerseys
Maybe they are looking to expand over into NFL Mexico?

The only thing that the NFL is thinking is "We need more latino fans".

Next will be American Indian/Eskimo tradition month and the NFL will jump onto that and have traditional American Indian/Eskimos dancing on the stage followed by Asian American month, Russian American weekend,Brazilian American day.... etc.

I'm with you, I retch at this stuff.

Re: Excuse me while I puke Hispanic heritage month NFL

Which month is going to be white heritage month? I hope we get one with 31 days. But seriously...commercials in Spanish? Let them learn the language like my grandparents did and the rest of Americans through the years, not create a separate culture.
