Nick Wright calls his dad, Louie, ‘a fireman,’ omitting the union boss part
Jim Rome knock-off Nick Wright wants to be able to sit in his box at the coliseum and wave a perfumed hankie as football players, the gladiators of modern times, ferociously hurl themselves at each other.
Wright, a host at 610-AM, made callous comments after a violent weekend in the NFL. Wright talked about the most recent spate of brain-rattling hits as an occupational hazard. “My dad’s a fireman,” Wright said, which made him a greater risk for lung cancer.
But calling Wright’s dad “a fireman” is little like referring to Barack Obama as a “prominent Hawaiian.”
