Snowflake Bob Costas Not Covering The Super Bowl Because Of Head Trauma



Bob Costas isn't covering the Super Bowl this year because he's slowly turning into a soft pile of mush.  We'll miss his lectures and condescending tone.

Here's how he explained his absence in an email to Sports Business Daily:

I have long had ambivalent feelings about football, so at this point, it’s better to leave the hosting to those who are more enthusiastic about it.

I have been making the same points for several years, often on NBC. In halftime commentaries, interviews with Roger Goodell and other prominent NFL figures, appearances on CNN and elsewhere, I have addressed the issue of football and its undeniable connection to brain trauma many times. Why? Because the evidence is overwhelming and the effects are often devastating. It’s the elephant in the stadium at every game whether others choose to acknowledge it or not. And it’s not going away. So the idea that I am only now finding my voice on this, or that NBC was taken aback by what I said at Maryland is just wrong. It’s all simple and straightforward.

Bet you didn't know he was the one who discovered the link between football and brain trauma.  Now you know he's a hero and that's why he isn't covering the Super Bowl.
