Naturally, basketball + Fox News = a discussion of race, even inadvertently. In the Freudian-est of slips this morning, Fox & Friends host Heather Childers, a self-proclaimed "huge sports fan," looked directly into the camera and said, with poise and confidence, "The UConn Huskies are the 2014 NAACP national champs." Then she smiled, not a wince, like a pro.
"NCAA champs ... " she clarified. Some of her favorite basketball players are black.
Thanks @Dave4Golf! I immediately corrected myself. Anyone who follows me knows I love sports. Just misspoke. Fuel 4 late night comics ;)— Heather Childers (@HeatherChilders) April 8, 2014
