Oh No. No No No. It's Spreading

Regular FireJay readers (all five of them) are probably familiar with our collective disdain for football analysts who can't go five fucking words during a broadcast without using "football" as a qualifier in front of nouns like "game," "team," and "player." (Worst offenders: Mark Schlereth, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, and pretty everyone on FOX's NFL crew.) Well, guess fucking what? It's officially spreading to basketball. It may have started a while ago but I'm just now noticing it. ESPN's NCAA crew, specifically good ol' Dickie V, has been breaking it out these past couple of days. For example: "I said it all week, Cleveland State is a good basketball team." Wait, what kind of team are they? DIE.

I hate the sports media.
