Round 2… At 73, Brent Musburger is slick, you have to give him that. Monday night, just one week after the uproar about his compliment of Katherine Webb – Miss Alabama, and girlfriend of Alabama starting quarterback AJ McCarron during the BCS Championship Game, Brent was at it again! Brent Musburger
At the end of the Kansas/Baylor Basketball Game, Musburger signed off the game’s broadcast with: “Once again, your final score, Kansas 61, Baylor 44. Coming up next, SportsCenter. For Fran Fraschilla and Holly Rowe, who was really smokin’ tonight, I want to say ‘So long from Lawrence.’”
ESPN has come out and said Brent said “it was really smokin’ tonight” rather than “who was really smokin’ tonight.” Then an ESPN spokesperson said ”Brent said the word ‘it.’ We are moving on.”
(SIDEBAR- the final score of that smokin’ game as ESPN put it Kansas 61- Baylor 44, listen to the clip yourself)
So either ESPN doesn’t feel Holly was worth defending, or knew that they made a big thing out of nothing with the Musburger / Webb comments.
Well-played Mr. Musburger, well-played…
