Moron of the Week Award #7
July 15, 2009 by admncc
Because of his sheer stupidity, rather than accepting nominations, I decided to award Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (of the UFC) the “Moron of the Week Award” for this week.
This is not a sports’ post, for any of my sports hating readers out there. And you don’t even have to like the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) to understand why “Rampage” is a moron.
During a recent interview with reporter, Heather Nichols, “Rampage” started (for lack of a better term) dry-humping Nichols. And Rampage continued to do so during the rest of the one-minute interview. You can view the awkward incident here.
Nichols went on to tell CNN and Sports Illustrated, “At first I was just shocked when he grabbed me, and all I could think was, “Oh my gosh, what is he doing?!” Then I tried to play along a little bit because I knew he was trying to be funny, but after about the first 5-10 seconds, it was just plain awkward. I kept thinking, “What should I do? Knee him? Keep going?” So I decided to keep asking questions, assuming he would stop if I did that. So I asked another question, and he kept going. I asked ANOTHER question, and he kept going. At this point I was just freaking out, but still trying to be a professional and ask all the questions I was assigned to ask, and this has been interpreted by some viewers as me liking it and egging him on. This was definitely not the case. I was hired to do a job, which was to interview Rampage, so I decided to put up with his shenanigans and finish the interview.”
Wow! I don’t know about you, but I think she should have knocked him out. She played it off pretty well though. Also, watch very closely at the end of the video as a producer very cautiously comes up, taps “Rampage’ on the shoulder and tells him to stop.
