"what about his eyes?"

I mentioned this in passing the other day, but it's worth a devoted post... Amidst all the furor over ESPN's "Chink In The Armor" headline, we almost overlooked this little gem. Check out Greg Kelly of WNYW Fox 5 in New York making a questionable remark while discussing Jeremy Lin -- specifically, a crack about his eyes:

Whoa, seriously? Did I hear that right? Oh, sure. The guy makes a racist joke, and everyone just laughs along? You could make the argument that he's just playing along with her already awkward description of Jeremy Lin's physique.

But I don't think so. Kelly's colleagues make an fumbly attempt to brush off his dumbass remark with something about "court vision," but there it is. Yet another joke about the Asian guy and his Asian eyes. Not funny.
