According To Denver Post Columnist, Broadcasters Can Have Grit

denver post

Referring to Monday Night Football talking head John Gruden as the “football broadcasting rookie of the year,” Denver Post columnist Dusty Saunders ascribed –  or a at least whoever was responsible for the headline of his column – a trait to a broadcaster that is usually reserved for nonathletic, awkward, white basketball players or 40-year-old gunslingin’ quarterbacks: grit.

I guess we should just be thankful that Saunders didn’t say that John Gruden is just having fun up there.

And there are people still alive named Dusty?
