This pisses me off way more than it should. I understand that news stations have to find clever ways to rehash the same crap over and over just to fill air time. However, would it kill them to stick to regurgitating important issues like backup quarterbacks making excessively Patriotic white people uncomfortable with peaceful protests, prejudiced Presidential candidates sabotaging their own campaign, and/or literally anything else other than the Jaguars lady? Just because it's the local news doesn't mean they had to hunt down THEE local legend. Especially since doing so completely compromised that title.
If there's one thing I absolutely did not need to know it was that woman's name. If there's a second thing I didn't need it was her story. You think I give a FUCK about Roberta and her family's decorated history of public and social activity. I don't care where she got her mouth from. I just care about that ONE, inimitable time she used it to give the most electrifying interview an on-scene correspondent covering the NFL Draft has ever lucked into capturing on film. You know what this creepy newscaster (that has apparently been stalking this poor woman) just did? He set her up for failure. There's simply no way she could have come out of the office - after undoubtedly doing some type of manual labor - and delivered an equally entertaining soundbite.
Jaguars' lady used to be a leather faced, irrationally confident fan that was still day dreamin' about the mid-90's, glorifying her new 20 year old mid-town "beach house", and implicating the entire NFL of conspiracy charges for actively impeding Jacksonville's rise to prominence. Now, she's just Roberta, the blue collar worker that doesn't quite understand the internet or comprehend why this twerp was lurking in the shadows and prolonging her trip to get a break-time beer. I respect her hustle, but I gotta say - I liked her better when she was ::overly dramatic pause:: stealing the show...
