Keith Olbermann Calls Frank Jackson the World's Worst Person In Sports

Posted By on Wed, Jun 11, 2014 at 10:25 AM


In the midst of the sin tax and win tax and taxy tax talks after county exec Ed FitzGerald proposed some amorphous plan to tie some of the sin tax money allotment to team performance on the field (we don't fully understand it either), mayor Frank Jackson came out in opposition to the plan.

Fitz made some national headlines with his proposal, earning plenty of ink as The Guy Who Would Finally Stop (Sort Of) Handing Out Tax Dollars Willy Nilly To Pro Sports Teams. And Keith Olbermann latched onto the news after Jackson came out as The Guy Who Wants To Keep Doing Things The Way They've Always Been Done and gave Jackson the honor of the World's Worst Person in Sports.

Watch for yourself.
