Well after hearing Kornheiser's fourth quarter apology last night, I decided to run back through the game and find the original "laundry" quote. Here are both that one and the apology spliced together....
"I took high school Spanish, either he said he's not going to be caught, or please pick up my dry cleaning tomorrow." - Tony Kornheiser
"I said something before which I shouldn't have said, I apologize for it. Not my first mistake, undoubtedly won't be my last, but a 100% apology."- Tony Kornheiser
Now personal feelings about Tony Kornheiser's MNF work aside, the fact that the comment was potentially offensive never even crossed my mind. I also understand after the fact that it could be taken as such and that was probably not something you wanted to joke about during a Hispanic Heritage Month spot. In the end, I really think this was a case of Kornheiser being his unfunny on-air self and not saying anything inflammatory, so hopefully he'll get a pass on this one.
