ESPN anchor apologizes for Jeremy Lin comment

Yahoo Sports Minute

Just when you thought racially-insensitive comments regarding the nationality of Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin had run their course, this happens. More specifically, ESPN anchor Jorge Andrés happened. While doing highlights of Thursday night's Houston Rockets-New York Knicks game (won by the Rockets 109-106) on the evening edition of SportsCenter, Andrés made a reference to Lin that he was "cooking with some hot peanut oil." Roughly 40 minutes later, Andrés made an on-air apology, saying, "Now earlier in this show, I made a comment about a Jeremy Lin basket that I should not have made. This was clearly a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize. I'm very, very sorry for offending anyone. That was never my intention." You may remember another ESPN anchor, Max Bretos, made an inappropriate reference to Lin and the network fired an online editor in February 2012 for using similar — albeit much more inflammatory — language.

Like father, like son

Meanwhile, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree when it comes to the 9-year-old son of Miami Heat star LeBron James. According to an Instagram video posted by his proud papa, LeBron James Jr. went for 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a game Thursday night — and even threw in a couple Dwyane Wade "Euro steps".

Colts bounce back

Finally, the Indianapolis Colts rebounded from an embarrassing 38-8 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 10 to beat the Tennessee Titans 30-27. Andrew Luck and Co. were down 17-6 at the half but got a pair of second-half touchdowns from Donald Brown to key the victory.
