Tony Dungy Epaters Les Bourgeois Journalists
Immediately after Tony Dungy, the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts was victorious in February’s Super Bowl, he gave a remarkable speech on the live CBS postgame show, in which he said, at about 2:38 into the above clip:
I tell you what. I'm proud to be representing African-American coaches, to be the first African-American to win this. It means an awful lot to our country. But again, more than anything, I've said it before, Lovie Smith and I, not only the first two African-Americans, but Christian coaches, showing that you can win doing it the Lord's way. We're more proud of that.Such heterodox thinking was too much for a few of the guests at my Super Bowl party, and after witnessing their vaporous near-faints and splenetic responses, I wrote:
Unlike Janet Jackson's shopworn halftime routine a few years ago, think of this as the most radical example of Epater Les Bourgeois at the Super Bowl.Certainly far too radical for the Washington Post, It seems. I guess this is more their speed.
