Drunk Dana

After Fat Willard alerted me of this story from The Big Lead, I had a few comments of my own to share on the matter.

Let's do a little point-counterpoint on some of gems from the original.

We’re hearing that vodka-swilling ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson has been “talked to” by the higher-ups at the WWL about her excessive boozing at the painfully lame Mike & Mike Roast last weekend in Atlantic City.
Now, I have been known to sauce it up from time to time, but I gotta give the girl some credit. Her bottle of Vodka might have been the only interesting part of the night, giving the "lame" nature of the event. Hey, a girl's gotta have a little fun.

...According to a source, Jacobson is one of the least-liked anchors in Bristol (complaining like a diva about having her do her own makeup is just one of the reasons)...
I don't claim to be some smokin' hot piece (well, maybe I do...), but I do feel qualified to comment on the asthetics of other women. All I have to say if that I can see why Dana might want a little help in the makeup department... (and maybe in the teeth department too).

...but [she] plays “The Game” well with the suits and thus her antics at the roast have been chalked up as a screw-up that happens to guys all the time...
"The Game"? What game would that be, pocket ball? Hide the salami?

But the overriding feeling is that Jacobson is in the clear - for now. Even though the Atlantic City Press painted a vivid picture (”ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson made an absolute fool of herself, swilling vodka from a Belvedere bottle, mumbling along and cursing like a sailor as Mike & Mike rested their heads in their hands in embarrassment. Griffin came to the podium to defend her after she was booed by the crowd. Ross eventually had to pull her off stage, too.”), someone who attended the roast passed along this message: “hard to describe what a fucking train-wreck she was.”
Ah, we've all been drunk to the point of embarrassement. Not our own embarrassment, of course.

But... we write anonymously on blogs for a reason.
