Putting the “F” in FCC

NbclogorgbposFirst there was Bono. Then there was Janet Jackson. Now there’s Tyler Palko.

No, Palko’s not the best singer you never heard of, but he’s probably the latest individual to catch the eye of the FCC. Known before Saturday night simply as the quarterback for the University of Pittsburgh, Palko got into a whole new ball game when he used the F-word in a postgame interview on NBC after his team upset Notre Dame on Saturday night, 41-38. (Too bad you missed it—it was effing great.)

He was quick to apologize, but it seems only a matter of time before postgame interviews are subjected to the wonders of the five-second delay.
