Christine Brennan has been one of America’s great sportswriters since her days covering the Redskins for the Washington Post in the mid-eighties. That’s when I got to know her, and she’s been on my radio show many times over the years. That’s why my eyebrows were raised recently when she used her USA Today column to explain why she will no longer say the name of Washington’s NFL team.
I invited her onto my America Weekend show to discuss her decision after all these years of using the word (thousands of times), whether she’s pushing other sportswriters to follow her lead, and what she’d do about the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Indians, and Atlanta Braves.
