I started writing some weekly thoughts on football last year, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to give that a shot again, probably sometime on Monday or Tuesday whenever I get up, which is usually around 1 p.m. The Jay-Z/Eminem concert at Yankee Stadium on Monday pushed this back a bit. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll also preface this, as usual, by saying I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really know an enormous amount about football relative to other sports, but I enjoy looking at it from a social and cultural standpoint.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure everyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sick of this situation with TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz getting heckled by the Jets Ã¢â‚¬â€œ thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the nature of things now, Twitter makes you sick of things the moment you hear about them. And this sort of thing comes up every couple years and eventually just goes away without any real change affected, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d imagine this will probably be about the same, though maybe Roger Goodell does something here. I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think of what it would be.
But to those saying Sainz Ã¢â‚¬Å“brought it on herselfÃ¢â‚¬Â by wearing revealing outfits, that reeks of jealousy and latent sexism. Whatever the Jets said to her, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve much likely heard far worse spewing from people who blame her for being harassed.
