It’s sports season, and Rush Limbaugh has chimed in on the ridiculousness of it all — from Tim Tebow saying goodbye to the Jets to the media circus over the first NBA player in history to come out as gay. And let’s not forget the new NFL “Black Tax.”

Rush first discussed the departure of Tim Tebow from the Jets. “The New York media is all excited that Tebow’s gone because now Tebow’s not gonna screw up the Jets locker room with all the Jesus talk,” said Limbaugh.

Limbaugh went on to criticize the mainstream media for its coverage of NBA player Jason Collins coming out of the closet.

“The New York media is all excited because the first gay player of the NBA has come out. Hey, it’s a great day, folks,” said Limbaugh. “I mean, this really says great things about the United States of America. Do you understand what an enlightened, great country we now really are? Because an NBA player has come out gay.”

Limbaugh added: “It’s only a matter of time before the NFL parades its first couple of gay players out there.”

While he discussed what could come up in the NFL, he brought up a phrase he read in a USA Today story: “Black tax.” But what is it exactly?

“. . .The black tax is a black quarterback who does not get drafted in the first round. He gets drafted in the second round, meaning that there is so much discrimination in the NFL, they’re not gonna take a black quarterback in the first round and not gonna pay ’em first round money,” said Limbaugh.
