Indiana’s Governor Fancies Himself a Comedian

Joe McConnell, the retiring play-by-play man for Purdue was awarded the Sagamore of Wabash by Indiana governor Mitch Daniels, which is the highest honor the Indiana governor can give to someone. During the ceremony Daniels paid his respects to McConnell saying that¬†“I’ve always thought he had one of the great voices anywhere in sports.”

Then, Daniels (left) told the assembled audience that in fact he wanted to give out TWO of the award. “Because it’s for wisdom and judgment and benefits to the state of Indiana, I did give one to (New England Patriots coach)¬†Bill Belichick,” referring of course to the failed 4th and 2 play that lost the Patriots/Colts game for New England.

Wop Wop Wah.

Stick to governing.
