Terry Bradshaw's 'chicken' comment doesn't offend Reggie Bush

Joe Robbins

The Dolphins RB, who says he knows the Fox broadcaster personally, brushed off any allegations of racism about a remark Bradshaw made last Sunday.

In a story that has gotten quite a bit of national publicity, FOX broadcaster Terry Bradshaw joked that Reggie Bush was running like he was "chasing that bucket of chicken the wind was blowing" during his 18-yard touchdown run against the Dolphins last Sunday.

Bush tried to put the story to bed on Wednesday, telling reporters that he knew Bradshaw personally and took no offense to his comments (courtesy of the Miami Sun-Sentinel):

"I don't think there's an ounce of racism in his body," said Bush.

Afterwards, Bradshaw said that the remarks were in reference to an inside joke between him and former Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson, one of the other analysts in FOX's studio show.

Either way, it seems that Bush is trying to put the story behind him, as he would assuredly prefer the media talk about his revival in Miami over the last two seasons, where he has proven that he can carry the load as a feature NFL RB.

And as for fried chicken in general, Bradshaw should probably leave that type of commentary to people like Dave Chappelle, who really said all that needs to be said about it.
