Larry Brown Sports:
Terry Bradshaw expressed remorse for a joke he made on Sunday while reading a halftime highlight of Reggie Bush scoring a touchdown.
Bradshaw was describing a highlight of the Dolphins running back scoring against the Colts when he said to co-host Jimmy Johnson, “look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”
“Oh boy,” host Curt Menefee groaned in response.
“I’m glad you said it to Jimmy and not me,” Strahan playfully said to Bradshaw. “We’re going to ship [Bradshaw] out of here.”
“I’m dying, I’m playing hurt,” said Bradshaw, who complained earlier in the day that he wasn’t feeling well.
The “bucket of chicken” joke was noted and criticized by many websites Sunday and Monday. Bradshaw told USA Today Sports’ Michael Hiestand that his joke was intended for Jimmy Johnson, not Reggie Bush, and he offered the following apology.
“I can’t defend myself,” says Bradshaw. “I’ve never been in a situation like this.

Terry Bradshaw raised some eyebrows on Sunday when he said Reggie Bush was running like he was chasing a bucket of fried chicken, but he says the comment was all a big misunderstanding.
He said what T?
While showing a Reggie Bush touchdown run from the first half of the Dolphins-Colts game, Bradshaw commented that the Miami running back was “chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day,” leading to chuckles from Bradshaw and Johnson and an awkward groan from co-host Curt Menefee..I suppose he could’ve used a better choice of words...
During halftime of the early NFL games yesterday, Fox’s Terry Bradshaw made the comment that Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was running like he was chasing a bucket of chicken. During the highlight, you can hear Bradshaw say
“Look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”
While the comment sounds extremely racist...
Tweet Remember when Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush used to routinely make defenders look silly at USC? Well, Reggie has still got it, as he proved on this sick move to shake the Indianapolis Colts defense for a TD: That’s as good a cut as you will ever see in football. I guess all that [...]
I think Curt Menefee might want to take back what he told me about how he likes it that Terry Bradshaw is still doing the highlights for FOX. Curt seems shockingly not thrilled with Bradshaw’s joke about Reggie Bush running like he’s chasing chicken. In Terry’s defense… ha ha, just kidding. He’s indefensibly awful.

I am thinking that Terry Bradshaw is wanting this one back, even though Jimmy Johnson and him thought it was absolutely hysterical. Curt Menefee? Not so much. Here is Bradshaw calling the highlight run of Miami Dolphins running back, Reggie … Continue reading →
Tweet Every so often a sports television personality makes a comment or joke that doesn’t go over quite as well as they initially planned. Fox NFL analyst Terry Bradshaw had one of these moments Sunday. When describing Reggie Bush’s impressive cutback run for a touchdown, Bradshaw appears to say that Bush was running like he [...]
Reggie Bush jumped in a Deloreon and cranked it up to 55 miles per hour on Sunday.
Bush has looked like a new player ever since he was traded to Miami, but against the Colts, he looked like his old self again when he stutter stepped his way to an 18-yard touchdown run. The only thing missing was his patented flip into the end zone. The Dolphins still couldn'...

The Miami Dolphins are officially at the midway point in the 2012 season. The Miami Dolphins currently sit at 4-4 an alone in second place in the AFC East, as well as one game back of the two AFC wild card spots. The Miami Dolphins season has been a bit of a roller coaster as they started 1-3, then improved to 4-3 after a 3 game winning streak, only to fall back to .500 on Sunday...
As someone who lives in Tennessee, I am forced into watching a lot of Titans games. On the plus side, I get to see a lot of touchdowns, but they typically aren’t the kind everyone else in Nashville keeps hoping for. While I wouldn’t say The Titans are the worst team in football, they definitely have one of the worst defenses and that means you should be starting Reggie Bush...
There have some terrible acts committed under the watch of the NCAA over the years, acts that make you question the integrity of college athletics. Reggie Bush’s name comes to mind. So does Jim Tressel’s and recent allegations of academic fraud at North Carolina.
The NCAA has seen these acts, and it has likely been disgusted by them like we all have. It wanted to make sure such...
