We discussed earlier tonight that Lee Corso is at the adult version of Barney, where he keeps us entertained and teaches us new things all while dressed up in crazy costumes. But while Corso is like an adult version of Barney, ESPN announcer Brent Musburger is like that creepy old guy you bust walking out of an adult video shop.
During Monday night’s broadcast of the BCS National championship game, Musburger made it his business to point out how ridiculously hot A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend.
It didn’t really start out that creepy, and from they way people were reacting you’d have though Musburger had gotten really dirty in his description of Katherine Webb.
But Musburger flirted with a creepy line, slowly crossed it then slowly came back.
And I’d like to point out that Dee Dee Bonner is not a mutt. Musburger probably should have directed his words towards McCarron’s mother seeing as she’s a lot closer to his age. Had Musburger done that, we probably would have reacted the same way, but the creepiness factor wouldn’t have been as high as it was.
For the record, Katherine Webb is 23 years old and Brent Musburger is a ripe 73 years of age. Not only are we getting a really bad national championship game, we got a situation that was about two seconds away a Chris Hanson appearance.
But is says a lot about a National Championship game when the most talked about moment didn’t even happen on the field and was only mildly related to the game itself.
