Talk show host apologizes for comments on Tim Tebow

A Boston sports talk show host has apologized for likening former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow's NFL draft-night party to a "Nazi rally."

"Anyone who listens to the show regularly knows that I am not the most articulate person in the world, and on Friday, we were joking around about the NFL Draft. And unfortunately, I made a regrettable statement about the Tim Tebow draft party that ended up offending some people. And I truly, truly can tell you that was not my intention," Fred "Toucher" Toettcher said in a statement given to CNN affiliate WHDH on Monday. "I apologize to you that were offended. You know, I just apologize, and I regret what I said."

Toettcher made the comments Friday on the Toucher and Rich Show on WBZ-FM, the morning after Tebow was selected 25th in the first round of the NFL draft by Denver.

    I wonder if Toettcher being Jewish has anything to do with this? Didn't Holden Cushner and another Jewish sports guy get into trouble for similar comments bashing Tebow for being a Christian and or a white guy? It seems like these dudes have some deep-seeded hatred for Christians and it's seeping out in their radio broadcasts.

    What is wrong with a white athlete having white family members around him. Once again, the fact that color is even noticed on such a big event in the lives of these men and their family & friends show just how racist America can be.

    Ok, i'll say it. and I won't apologize. Teblow is a gay, stuckup f***head. He probably has a nazi sign tattooed on his a**.
