While many Americans spend their Labor Day grilling hot dogs and hamburgers and celebrating a decent excuse to get smashed on a Monday afternoon, Hall of Fame defensive tackle Dan Hampton, who now serves as an analyst on Pro Football Weekly’s television show, is most likely chewing on his own foot.
This is because Hampton used last week’s episode of the show to display his knack for metaphor, simile and cultural insensitivity.
"The Cowboys think they are Clint Eastwood; they're more of the 'Brokeback' variety if you know what I'm talking about,” Hampton said, of the 2010 Cowboys squad. “This is one team I would like to buy for their worth and sell for what they think they're worth. Look out. The Giants are going to be back.”
The offensive train didn’t stop there; in previewing the regular season opener on Thursday, which pits the Minnesota Vikings against the New Orleans Saints in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game, Hampton opted to take the controversy up a notch, and offend an entire region of the country.
“The Vikings need to go down there and hit that town like Katrina,” Hampton said.
Wow, Danimal. Wow.
