Another Societal Air Ball From The NBA

Call it a societal air ball. Recently the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks had to apologize for playing a hip-hop song over the public address system of Phillips Arena during a timeout. Seems that Hawk management was shocked — not unlike Claude Raines’ famous double-take upon discovering gambling at Rick’s in Casablanca — that the ditty was filled with obscenities and other, uh, graphic language. And it was a “Family Night” promotion.

Nice touch.
