Thats prolly BS made up by some random idiot who thinks that just cuz they're black, their last name is Smith, and they're on ESPN. Need proof.
For real, am I wrong for laughing at that Tour de France crash? Can't get over the driver speeding off as if he didn't know he hit someone!
And later, when the controversy began:
It had far been too long since I'd angered an entire community. Today I've managed offend cyclists everywhere. Guess what? It's still funny.
On July 12 at 8:00 (pacific) Michael Smith posted the following on his Twitter page: "I apologize for my insensitive remarks re: the TdF crash. I recognize my comments were inappropriate given the serious nature of the crash."
