The only time I really listened to Rush was when he had that gig at ESPN. I was watching the show ( I think it was Monday Night Countdown) when got up on his hind legs and said that the only reason Donovan McNabb had a job was because he was black. The other announcers were so stunned they didn't even really respond, they were just looking at him. It was a serious "WTF??" moment. He was fired the next day.
