Desmond Doesn't Do His Homework

Thursday, December 21, 2006

I got this email from John V. yesterday, and it hurt me to the core. Desmond Howard is our favorite college player ever. Hands down. So you can understand why I was hesitant to post, that was until I found the video.

From John V: Last night, before the game, they asked the studio guys to pick the pre-New Year's game they were most looking forward to. Desmond Howard selects the Holiday Bowl, and how much he is looking forward to the Cal/Texas game. He then launches into an analysis of how Colt McCoy will fare against the Cal defense. That's all well and good, except for the fact that Cal is playing Texas A&M. None of the other guys in the studio bothered to correct him.

Desmond Howard has been consistently horrible, but this takes it to a new low.

Why Desmond!?!?!?!?! WHY!!!!!!!?????? No, you can't be an Awful Announcer! I refuse to accept it. This never happened.

Update: Apparently I'm slow.....The 12th Manchild already has Howard's Apology from the Bud Hot Seat. I guess it's an apology....Howard says he "mis-spoke" when saying Texas instead of Texas A&M.

Pay no mind that you even brought up Texas QB Colt McCoy, Desi. You just mis-spoke....that's all you did....let's forget this ever happened. Right? Right. Just in case.......everyone please look at this pen.

Oh, wow.

I don't know what else to add to that. You're looking at the prompter, probably, or a screen of yourself, and you can't tell that it ain't burnt orange that Cal's going up against.

I think the funniest part is that in his apology he referred to the game as the "Pacific Holiday Bowl," when its actually the "Pacific Life Holiday Bowl." Its a small point but you would think the second time around he would try to get things perfect.

Boomer Esiason did the same thing on the Sunday CBS halftime show. He went on about the Pats/Jags game being a possible re-match in the playoffs. Too bad the Jags were playing the Titans and the Pats the Texans. Dan, Shannon and JB looked like someone had put a turd in the punchbowl.
