03:18 PM ET 11.09 | In a story that has gotten quite a bit of national publicity, FOX broadcaster Terry Bradshaw joked that Reggie Bush was running like he was "chasing that bucket of chicken the wind was blowing" during his 18-yard touchdown run against the Dolphins last Sunday. Bush tried to put the story to bed on Wednesday, telling reporters that he knew Bradshaw personally and took no offense to his comments (courtesy of the Miami Sun-Sentinel): "I don't think there's an ounce of racism in his body," said Bush. Afterwards, Bradshaw said that the remarks were in reference to an inside joke between him and former Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson, one of the other analysts in FOX's studio show.

If people constantly look for something to be pissed off about, they will usually find it.

First!

Well, at least he didn't say that Reggie looked like he was chasing Kim Kardasian down the field.

November 9, 2012  03:32 PM ET

Just for the record, I wasn't offended by it either.

What a stupid thing to be pissed off about.....congratulations media, way to make a story out of a non-story.....what a bunch of overly sensitivity **** bags

Anyway, who don't like chicken??

I will call Denny's and have them save a table for Bradshaw in their "racist" section.

Given Veggie Bush's involvement with the Kardashians, I hope the chicken was coated with penicillin.

Before Super Bowl XIII, Cowboys linebacker Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson proclaimed that Pittsburgh quarterback Terry Bradshaw couldn't "spell 'cat' if you spotted him the 'c' and the 'a'."
I saw Bradshaw interview Henderson a few years a go and he damn near demanded that Hollywood apologize for that remark. A 50 something millionaire got his feelings hurt because a guy said something to him that would be a crack me and the guys would say in 5th grade. The very same guy then makes a racist joke about a player and instead of people saying "if you can't take it, don't dish it" they use it as an example of political correctness gone wild. WTF? Bradshaw was way out of line, it was a stupid racist comment, and the very same people who defend him would jump all over Shannon Sharpe or Deion Sanders if they mentioned egg roll in the same sentence with a Chinese American players. And yes, I even get offended when I hear Charles Barkley call a white commentator Ernie Johnson boy. This crap needs to die.

Never confuse a simple mind with an evil mind. Bradshaw is a simple mind.
