Last night Musburger signed off from the Baylor-Kansas basketball game, his first contest since the nontroversy at the BCS title game, and ended the broadcast thusly: "For Fran Fraschilla, and Holly Rowe, who was really smokin' tonight, I want to say so long from Lawrence."
God, I love Brent Musburger.
What a perfect response.
Here's the video:
The ball is now in ESPN's court.
I reached out to see if ESPN had a comment on Musburger's serial, wanton, and outrageous complimenting of women. I mean, this guy is completely out of control! What's next? Is he going to call ANOTHER woman good looking?
Can ESPN stand for this?
Heavens! If you can't tell I'm clutching my pearls and attempting not to faint. (Even gay muslims like pearls.)
ESPN's response, and I am not making this up, "Brent said the word 'it," we are moving on."
The word it?
So according to ESPN Brent Musburger said, "For Fran Fraschilla and Holly Rowe, it was really smokin' tonight, I want to say so long from Lawrence."
How many different times is ESPN going to have to clarify what its announcers actually said?
