ESPN hasn’t denied the story yet, and if the network eventually bothers to, we’ll finally be convinced that it’s true. (Update: They’ve confirmed it? Wow.)

Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage reported Tuesday afternoon that MSESPN pulled a football announcer named Robert Lee off the William and Mary at University of Virginia college football game “because they were concerned that having an ASIAN FOOTBALL ANNOUNCER NAMED ROBERT LEE would be offensive to some viewers.”

It has to be satire … doesn’t it? Maybe not:

Travis was right, then?

To avoid offending left wing idiots Robert Lee, the Asian college football announcer, not the Confederate General who died in 1870 and shares a name with him, was switched to the Youngstown State at Pittsburgh game and Dave Weekley will now call the William and Mary at University of Virginia game.

Unless someone tries to take down Dave Weekley statues between now and kickoff.

One source we can always count on for Grade-A satire is Iowahawk.
