More Awesome Cursing Caught On-Air

Monday, April 14, 2008

Last week it was ESPN airing an F-Bomb from an umpire who happened to be mic'd up (video is here if you missed it), but that was nothing compared to the tirade that Versus had yesterday. During a tense Game 3 between the Devils and Rangers a fight broke out and the refs were trying to get it under control when a mic picked up this little exchange (NSFW language).....

That's Michael Rupp of the Devils and the Rangers' Paul Mara yawing at each other and I'm pretty Rupp called Mara a "f**king bitch" and a "pussy" at multiple points during that exchange. The ESPN clip was understandable because it was just one word, and Jon Miller was absolutely begging for the clip, but you'd think a producer's ears at Versus would have perked up after the first "pussy" was thrown out there.

I mean I'm glad they didn't, but still.

Take it from a Canes fan -- Forslund is awesome. He's also used to "just moving on" because his broadcast partner is prone to making hilariously moronic comments. They make a great team.

What, though, did the announcers expect the conversation to be? A discourse on the merits of John McCain's tax plan, perhaps.
