Granted, the lyrical flow of MC Tony Parker, as replayed continuously on the evening sports news, is not the sort of thing Nas will be losing sleep over. Nor, however, was Parker’s performance “a disgrace”, as characterized tonight by Fox Sports Radio’s Bruce Jacobs, who helpfully suggested that Parker “speak American” in the future.

“The French!” snorted Jacobs. “They don’t like us and we don’t like them. What did the French ever do for us but stab us in the back? And did we do for them except save their ass, time and time again?”

With such a keen grasp of world history, I certainly hope Jacobs considers running for elective office someday. If nothing else, that should get him off the radio.
