World Series 2013: Bud Selig, Erin Andrews have microphone fight (Video)

When Erin Andrews left ESPN for Fox Sports, she did so for one reason – to talk. As the lead female broadcaster for the network, Andrews not only does studio work but will do sideline/celebration work when the time comes. She did it last year during the World Series and NLCS and things were no different this year.

One of her famed positions is on the temporary stage that the network sets up to present the World Series trophy, which MLB Commissioner Bud Selig hands out to the owner(s) of the franchise. He also will often say something extremely boring and awkward, trying to get the microphone out of his face quickly as possible as its clearly not his specialty.

I say often, because tonight he apparently had desires to keep the microphone, despite Andrews best attempt to get her prized possession back. As she leaned in to grab it, starting to tug it away, Selig refused to give her the microphone back, much to her shock as she stepped away letting Selig hang onto the device.

Guess she had enough of the microphone reach around.

    Selig is an idiot, but this was a very awkward ceremony all the way around – Andrews is really terrible at this aspect of her job. I think she had to be told to smile at one point and always kept the interview subject hidden behind the trophy for the wide angle shot. She is a robot. Dan Patrick is king of stupid on field celebration ceremonies.

  • Roberts

    Erin Andrews is pathetic and a sad disappointment, and an embarrasment to women as someone sticking up for women’s knowledge of the game. Her questions were pathetic, closed, and leading and for the most part uninsightful. The reactions of players etc. who mostly ignored her dumb questions shows she has little respect for the game. When she was up on the ceremonial stage she acted like she won the Championship. A good writer/reporter knows to “show don’t tell”, has no clue how to show, she can only tell.

  • Donna

    This is the second year in a row Erin Andrews has been awful on the big MLB stage. Not to mention her horrible performance at Daytona. I realize FOX paid a lot of money for her name, but the exposure has cost her whatever credibility she had in the industry. Yet based on her Twitter responses, she just dismisses any and all criticism as people who are unhappy with their own lives or who want to see her fail. She takes no responsibility at all for her terrible performances.
