I Love This Man

I met Keith Olbermann at a Dodgers' game this past season. He was sitting with Jason Bateman in Bateman's season seats, and I was just one section over from them. I waited until Olbermann got up from his seat, then walked to the top of the section and shook his hand. I said, "I love you. Well, 'worship' would probably be a more accurate word." He laughed and sincerely thanked me.

So now that I've seen the below video, I don't even know what word I will use to describe my feelings for Mr. Keith Olbermann. I don't even think I'll try. I just want to say thank you to him and leave it at that. We need more people to think like this, or we'll just continue to move further backward in this country.

That was a pretty powerful and moving commentary. Truth be told, I am not a big Olberman fan. I don't like his political leanings. I liked him when he was a local sportscaster in LA many, many moons ago. Nonetheless, he hit this particular issue spot on.
