I imagine it’s not easy to be a studio analyst. I mean, you have to read a big box that has scrolling words in it. Even worse? The text scrolls at your speaking pace. So instead of constantly fumbling your words trying to keep up, it slows down and speeds up so you don’t fall behind.
Even worse? It remembers the predictions you handed to producers earlier in the day, but former Baltimore Ravens linebacker and current ESPN football analyst Ray Lewis trusts no such technology. So instead of reading the teleprompter during Sunday Countdown, Lewis decided to look at his hand where he had written down his predictions for the AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos and the NFC Championship between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
The best part? He looked like an 11-year-old cheating on his test. Right before the camera panned to Lewis, he was seen looking at his hand both times then quickly removing it like a teacher had just walked by.
