Don Imus says Pacman Jones is a 'lovely kid'
I do know this: Whether you are a supporter or a detractor, Imus did nothing to help his credibility with this ridiculous take on Adam Jones' character Tuesday as he explained his controversial comments from Monday:
"My point was there's no reason to arrest this kid six times. He's a football player. He's a lovely kid. He's out having fun. He doesn't need to be arrested six times. We know why he gets arrested six times. That was my point."
Pacman a "lovely kid?" Oy. Maybe that was more sarcasm. Gosh, I hope so.
(Did I mention that for the entire 1981-82 school year I worked in the game room of the student union, immediately adjacent to the Pac-Man machine, and still can hear that stupid song playing in my head after listening to it 100 times a day for eight months?)
