I’m Special…I’m On TV

ESPN was once an honorable, credible, classy sports network.

But the most recent meltdown by their Twit In Training Brit McHenry makes me realize that those honorable, credible classy days are gone.

Following McHenry’s inhuman tirade to an employee at a towing company, all ESPN could do was suspend her for a week.  Basically their statement to others who think they are “above” everyone else:  you can berate another human being all you want, verbally abuse them, maybe even spit at them and you’ll just get a little slap on the wrist.

I don’t care if McHenry has a Doctorate in ass wiping.  She’s the real dummy in this scenario.  No one made her illegally park her car so she could go fill her smug little face with Chinese food.  That was her decision.  Then after her car got towed she cried “boo-hoo”.

She never admitted to doing anything wrong.  No siree.  Because she’s a big TV star.  And she matters.  Although most of us have never heard of her.  And she is breaking the law.  So because she’s embarrassed she was parked illegally and her car needed to be towed she belittled the employee at the towing company.  Because belittling someone who isn’t on TV sure makes those who are on TV feel so much better when they’re wrong.

The towing employee was just doing their job.  And they kept their cool.  Which is more than we can say for McHenry.

So what’s next for this Twit-who-thinks-she’s-better-than-everyone-else?  I hear she’s planning on shoplifting some prime jewelry because she thinks she can get away with it.  After all, she is on TV.



I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
