Everybody loves Ray Romano and Charles Barkley — pro tutor Hank Haney's first two pupils — but right-wing hacker Limbaugh is a lightning rod. You'd think the cable net would've learned from his fumbled Sunday NFL Countdown run (he resigned after suggesting Donovan McNabb was overrated because "the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well") that Rush and sports don't mix.
"I actually think I'm too smart for the game," Limbaugh says. "I'm trying to save the country, then the world after that, and to play golf at the same time, it's kinda distracting." His ego is even more bloated than the figure he cuts in golf shirts and shorts. Hasn't Tiger Woods done enough damage to the game?
Do you think Rush Limbaugh belongs on The Haney Project?
