Another coach behaving badly moment

Most of us know that homophobia is rampant in sports. But it is, in this the 21st century, usually a tad more subtle. Not so this past week in which we saw/heard the University of Hawaii football coach use the word faggot three times--three times!--in a press conference. Greg McMackin was referring to the chant the University of Notre Dame football team does before their games. He thought it resembled a "faggot dance." Clearly the man has never been to a gay dance club; because he would know that gay people are far better dancers than that!
Here's a pretty good editorial about the incident.
