Is Steve Lavin Friends With Eric Karros?

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Lost in all of the Pat Summitt/Tennesse stuff (video below) was a great showing by Michigan at home against Michigan State. Part of the way through the game Steve Lavin was joking with Brent on his first and middle names......what happened next can only be described as very very odd.

Lavin begins by busting on Musburger's middle name (which is Woody). Lavin jokingly admits he gots from the production truck. From there Brent brings up Google, and Lavin throws in YouTube. Well that's when it gets weird.......

Don't know if you remember this Deadspin piece on Karros and Andrews, but Lavin one-ups our friend Eric at the :54 second mark.

"Go look up Erin Andrews on YouTube......My Goodness."- SL

Not sure where Stevie was going with that one, but it comes off awfully sexist. We make light of Erin Andrew's good looks, but she really is a good reporter. It's one thing to be ogled on the internet, but to be called out by your co-workers is a little uncalled for.

Here's the Pat Summitt was actually pretty boring. I respect Tennesse's school pride, but that was stupid.


That guy in the cheerleading skirt can't sing.

Good work once again AA- Sadly the most entertaining moment I saw was the Phillip Fulmer nosepick with about 1:30 left. I guess Dickie V didn't have anything to say about the Noah 'incident' tonight. The way Noah has played this year I think Horford will do much better in the NBA. Too bad the Dickster choose the backpedal route. His original comments were on the money.

Great stuff. I still think the Pat Summitt thing is cool. And I hate the SEC.

I think Pat Summitt has nice legs, and I don't care who knows it.

Oh of course I'm participating! Hypocritical...perhaps, but it's just weird when comments like that come from co-workers (especially if they are saying them to thousands of viewers).

We need to knock Erin Andrews down a few pegs. This is getting out of hand.

What is your deal w/ Erin Andrews NFL Adam??

Also, why is everyone saying that the Pat Summitt thing was lame? She came out, showed school spirit, fired up the crowd, fired up the team (they went on like a 15-0 run after her appearence), and it ultimately led to Joakim "you'd be crazy to draft me over Horford" Noah and the rest of the Gators losing thier #1 seed!

I think Lavin's comment of "my goodness" was more because of the fact that someone actually took the time to make a tribute to Erin.
