We've ALL lost today.

An open letter to Rush Limbaugh:

Dear Rush,

As we all deal with the fallout, the pain, and the repercussions of losing out on the opportunity to have you as an owner in the National Football League...we reflect today on just how much we've truly lost.

"Our country has lost a great deal. A lot more than most people realize at the moment."
Those were your words, weren't they?

We've all lost. Those words ring so true. Just like when you said:

– “Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

– “We need segregated buses. … This is Obama’s America.”

– “President Obama is black. And I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder.”

– Democrats are interested in Darfur to secure black “voting bloc.”

– “Minorities never do anything for which they have to apologize.”

– Obama’s nomination for president “goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy.”

– Obama is a “halfrican-American.”

It's a sad day in the sports world...nay, the world in general, when we keep that kind of wisdom, compassion and concern for our fellow citizens out of the ownership box of an NFL franchise. We've all lost today.

Okay, not really. YOU lost. And you didn't just lose, you lost badly. The referee had to call the game, they took the ball from you, and told you to take your hate, your fear mongering and your division and go home. But hey look on the bright side, the apple of your eye, the St. Louis Rams, are losing more than their fair share of games at least you've got company. And you know what misery loves, don't you?

On the other hand, even though they are losing so damned often, they still don't want anything to do with matter how much ill-gotten money you have.

Keep your chins up. And you just remember, Champ...much like in the NFL, every Sunday there are winners...and then there are losers.

There's us...and then there's you.

High fives and Gatorade showers,

na, na, na,, na, na, na...hey, hey, hey...goodbye!
