In a world filled with the plethora of talking heads all giving their opinions that are based on, well, actually nothing, Erin Andrews is one of the best things going in sports television.
The latest flap occurred during the Boston-Detroit ALCS series when Andrews was interviewing Boston’s Mike Napoli. When referring to Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, Andrews might have slipped up and said Justin Bieber. That sparked a brouhaha among twitter hacks and led to at least one response by Andrews.
My lord..people are unreal RT @NDisch: “@pvdj: @ErinAndrews did you almost say Justin Bieber instead of Verlander in post game interview?”
There are only two questions that come to mind regarding this incident: Would you rather have Craig Sager asking the questions and does anyone care what Erin Andrews calls them?
