Don't know if anybody was listening to Nick and Lopez on 610 this morning but, did anyone hear the interview with Whitney Mercilus?

if you didn't, basically (paraphrasing) he was asked about Jake Locker and his ability to run our of the pocket and Mercilus said "yeah he is known to run, "it's gay", it's ok, we will have to contain him" or something to that effect, can't remember the exact wording but...

I think the Texans flying under the media's radar is a good thing in this situation cause this could be a potential S storm. Can you see the ESPN front page now? "Houston Texan Rookie Uses Gay Slur To Describe Titans QB"

Maybe he's just saying that locker is happily excited when he gets to run. :kitten:

Are you sure he didn't just say "it's okay, it's okay" twice in a row, and not "it's gay" one of those times?

no it was "it's gay" and I understand the contex of the word in this day and age. when we used it as kids, it meant something totally different than it does now, just waiting for a media talking head to get a hold of it...

ghey - a derivation of gay meaning lame. meant to be non-offensive to individuals of a homosexual persuasion

I ragged on my boys for their use of this term, but it is definitely in the vocabulary of the under 30 crowd.

Gay adj. (http://www.odps.org/glossword/index.php?a=list&d=8&t=dict&w1=G)

To be inadequate or displeasing; TO SUCK. something bad or unacceptable. ["that's so gay" or "that's gay."] ("That movie was ****ing gay.")

Note: In the late 1990s the teen culture started using the word gay to represent something not acceptable to their standards. From the late 1960's gay was associated with homosexuality, to most of society homosexuality was unacceptable and considered bad, so the word gay has transformed itself into something bad or unacceptable.

Think of it this way, instead of saying "it sucks" in reference to mobile QB's who can use their legs to escape the pocket, he said "it's gay" which in that particular usage has about the same meaning as "it sucks" or "i hate that".

I used the word a lot when I was younger, and sometimes it still slips out, but I'm trying to eliminate it from my habits for the same reason that I don't use "retarded." I'm a big conservative, and I'm the one sounding like a politically correct bleeding heart, but it seems hypocritical to keep using it.
