First time diary here, but there are some things so disgusting that you have to comment.
NBC Sports has been airing an Outdoors Channel NRA-sponsored show Under Wild Skies, starring lobbyist Tony Makris. Makris has, according to his bio, "played host to sports figures, politicians and celebrities for more than 15 years on hunts and Safaris— spanning the globe." Under Wild Skies is a show which has for the past 15 years celebrated by the beauty and wonder of Africa by heading out there and shooting it with the biggest damn gun it can.
I'm paraphrasing that last bit.
Well, now that NBC Sports is airing it, some of the more controversial aspects of the show are getting an airing too. Like this promo for a recent show that Deadspin posted. Trigger for the death of a beautiful animal.
I'm not really sure what else to say. Should I say that shooting an elephant is disgusting in itself? Should I say that drinking champagne afterwards and discussing how bringing the ivory back to camp will be a very special moment? Should I say that these two men are horrible disgusting affronts to the human race?
Seriously, I'm really not sure what to say.
