Jimmy the Greek was the Oddsmaker, and commentator that was fired.

However, his comment wasn't related to selective breeding. Actually, he made a comment that (INMHO), was not a racist comment but------.

In a discussion about the superiority of black athletes versus white athletes, he made the observation that when the Slave Traders were
acquiring potential slaves, they selected the largest and strongest available.

Racist? Not in my opinion, but the sponsors thought otherwise.

Re: Middle-age Americans Sicker than British

American cheeseburgers - that's what I blamed it on in 'Vietnamese village' pre Katrina - the kids running about a foot or more taller than their old country parents. That and rap music.

Six foot plus tall girls are fairly common in this part of Missouri - ? the water
