ESPN Apologizes for 'Dixie' During Colts-Texans

After attempting to capitalize on the popularity of the Captain Andrew Luck Twitter thing that has been going around for years, ESPN instead apologized for what some considered to be a tone-deaf decision to play "Dixie" during the Colts-Texans playoff matchup on Saturday.

 

The song was played over a graphic that showed a CGI Andrew Luck in a Union uniform being protected by two teammates in Confederate uniforms, which is weird because Indiana was a Union state.

 

Regardless of how you feel about "Dixie", can we agree that the Captain Andrew Luck thing is played out? How many times is "squirrel oil" and "my sidearm fires true!" going to be funny? It's been like five years, guys.
