Color commentary

Far be it from me to judge the intelligence or sensibilities of television sports announcers, but I couldn't help but wonder what prompted Brent Musburger and his talking head cohort, speaking about Texas Longhorn quarterback Vince Young during tonight's Texas-Ohio State game, to offer that Young reminds them of a young Randall Cunningham or Michael Vick.

Is this is the new political corectness -- the same bizarre white elephant social edict that drives local news stations in diverse markets to attach a reporter of a given ethnicity to a story concerning the same ethnicity without the hint of irony that the reporter has trained himself or herself to be as non-ethnic as possible on camera?
