Because in all reality, it was a serious joke:
Lauren Silberman's NFL tryout has lasted all of two kicks, neither of which traveled 20 yards.
She left the New York Jets' practice field after injuring her quadriceps. She tried two kickoffs, the first going 19 yards and the second about 13 yards. She then asked to see a trainer.
As more than two dozen media, including E! Entertainment network, watched her every move, Silberman was examined by a trainer.
Whoever set this whole thing up ought to be examined by a shrink.
This was an embarrassment.
Feminists ought to be outraged.
