Keith Olbermann Totally Redeems Himself

Yesterday, I pointed out that it was highly unlikely that Keith Olbermann didn't know about Chancey Billups. In fact, I wondered if he wasn't accidentally showing us just how deep his knowledge gets, even if it missed the obvious mark in this case. ↵

↵Then lo and behold, Olbdermann makes this flippant allusion to the controversy last night, in a way that implies -- not surprisingly -- that we mere mortals have no business questioning his sports cred. And reminding us that another error of his from the same telecast was a lot more important in the world-historical scheme of things. ↵ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵⇥ ↵ ↵

↵If you're wondering, yes, the Denver Ambrose Jellymakers were a real team. They participated in the Amateur Athletic Union, the original AAU, which despite its name was a forerunner of the NBA. And all you bloggers out there, today a certain gigantic, difficult man with a plan is laughing at you and you only.↵
