Today in weird and inappropriate things said live on ESPN, we have NFL reporter Ed Werder making a tasteless joke about the weight of soon-to-be Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid.
During a report about Reid's negotiations with the Chiefs, Werder offered a reason Reid wasn't on a flight to Kansas City with the team's search committee. (Emphasis added.)
"Chiefs owner Clark Hunt and his delegation that includes GM Scott Pioli has actually left Philadelphia and return to Kansas City without Andy Reid in tow. Now I don't know if that's because Andy Reid might put the plane over its weight limit, but there's no apparent breakdown in the deal. The expectation still is that Andy Reid is going to be the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs."
Ooh, burn! With comic chops like that, I can't believe he didn't throw in a zinger about the quality of the food on the airplane. Or that Scott Pioli's arms were really tired after flying from Philadelphia.
