Eat it ESPN! You think you can take Brent Musberger to task for making 'inappropriate' comments during the national title game? Make him apologize for calling a beautiful girl beautiful? Chastise him for giving every young man watching Alabama/Notre Dame the best life advice they could ever receive? For sure not! He will not go quietly into the night! He won't go down without a fight! He will creep on! For today is Brent's Independence day!
Seriously though I didn't watch this game last night but this video was tearing up the internet this morning and I flat out love it. Like I was legitimately on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what he was going to say about Holly Rowe. Then he drops a Jim Carrey 'SMOOOOKIN' circa 1993 and I literally could not stop hammering the replay button. And the best part about it is that Brent has nothing to lose here. I mean what are they going to do? Fire Brent Musberger? As far as I'm concerned Brent should make at least one comment like this every time he calls a game on ESPN. What's the old saying? You mess with the bull you get the horns? Well you mess with an aging sports broadcaster you get mildly offensive sexual suggestions!
PS: And for anyone who was actually upset about his comments about Miss Alabama and his suggestion that 'young men in Alabama should go out in the backyard and throw spirals with dad' check out these photos of Johnny Football after he won the Cotton Bowl:
Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury in the case of Musberger against the wussification of America I present exhibits A and B. Yeah it really looks like Johnny Football made a bad choice practicing throwing a spiral as a kid. 20 years old and has the Heisman trophy, sky high draft stock and smokeshow blonds on his arm. Like sometimes I think the worst thing to happen to me in my life was my parents buying me a Sega Genesis when I was 10. At the time I was amped. Couldn't wait to spent my afternoons on Sonic and Madden. But that's the thing, there's a direct correlation to my athletic ability tanking and the date I powered up Street Fighter for the first time. Thanks a lot Mom and Dad. You Haduken-ed my whole life.
