    ~facepaw~ And that, folks, is why it`s a good idea to avoid foul language as a general thing. If you get in the habit of it, you`ll become so used to it that you`re likely to use it without thinking.

    Yeah, that kind of thing is "frowned upon" in North Dakota...

    Perhaps it was his "pre-broadcast ritual"? He needs to find a new way to prepare...

    He was not fired. He has been "suspended". Good old North Dakota.

    He was having trouble with the London Marathon winners name Tsegaye Kebede, thus his frustration, and is also why it appears he is saying `gay at the start.

    He tweeted "Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go. Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support."

    oh - well, he says he wasn`t trying to say "Gay". But at this point, does it matter?

    @MrPeabody: Excellent update! Thanks! I`m sure the poor guy will get a job somewhere else.

    @LordJim: I abide by those rules, mostly. I try to NOT cuss unless I really mean it.

    Hey A.J.! Didn`t they teach you in Journalism class that when the line director shouts "On in 5.... 4.... 3...." and then holds up 2, then 1 finger and points, it means you`re going LIVE?

    What a douche. He had no idea whatsoever.
