Anyone who watched Inside The NBA last night knew this was coming. After a roundtable discussion turned into a debate over Sarah Palin and Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan called the former Vice Presidential candidate “good masturbation material” because of “the glasses and all that”. Even though the comment elicited plenty of laughter from Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, you could tell by the look on Ernie Johnson’s face that we were headed for some serious next day backpedaling.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sorry came by way of TNT, not Tracy Morgan. The network released a statement saying, “It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments.” At least for their sake, he didn’t loudly announce plans on “getting that pregnant”.

Enthusiastic about Clue, case-of-the-week mysteries, the NBA and cookies at Disney World. Less enthusiastic about the pricing structure of cable, loud noises and Tuesdays.
