ESPN Hockey Commentator Barry Melrose’s Analysis: Newark Sucks

271868.jpeg
On a video posted on ESPN.com, the hockey community’s Billy Ray Cyrus had this to say about the lavish new home for the New Jersey Devils:

“[It’s] a beautiful new building [but] don’t go outside if you have a wallet or anything else, because the area around the arena is just horrible.”

Melrose was referring to Newark, pop. 300,000. The city doesn’t host as many murders as Chechnya but it’s getting up there. Anyway, Newark Mayor Cory Booker asked for an apology, which he got:

Melrose is truly sorry that you live in a shithole.

  1. Melrose, he of the non-ironic mullet… how has he managed to remain in the public spotlight with that thing unchallenged?
