Yesterday, Fox Sports reporter Chris Myers guest hosted The Dan Patrick Show and raised some eyebrows with comments about the flooding in Nashville. As noted by the sports blog The Big Lead, Myers said:
MYERS: It's a great country here. We have disasters issues when people pull together and help themselves and I thought the people in Tennessee, unlike -- I'm not going to name names -- when a natural disaster hits people weren't standing on a rooftop trying to blame the government, okay. They helped each other out through this.
And Mike Helton, president of NASCAR, Tony Stewart, among some drivers went from the race over to the middle Tennesee area where still a lot of hardworking, tax-paying, legal American citizens have been affected by the floods and are trying to rebuild their lives and they are helping out. And I think that other people around the country, of course the music industry in and around Nashville helping, without making a big deal out of it and I think that's a good thing.
Myers' comments about the people of New Orleans are disgusting.
