Steve Lavin Forgets He Isn't Working With Musburger, Comments On Jimmy Dykes' Wife

Thursday, April 03, 2008

This had the potential to be disastrous but in the end it just came out awkward. Brad Nessler, Jimmy Dykes, and Steve Lavin were calling the College Slam Dunk and 3-Point Shootout Contest this past evening when the camera crew decided to show a mother and child.

Turns out that the very attractive blonde you see in this clip is Mrs. Jimmy Dykes and his daughter. Steve Lavin then just decides to make things extremely uncomfortable....

"Wow. That is impressive Jimmy."- Steve Lavin

It's never good to start a conversation by calling a man's wife "that". Just saying.


They were all over the place tonight;
Steve Lavin broke out some odd 'Rico Suave' reference, and I came in after some sort of blather about James Gist & Candace Parker:

Nessler: "You want to get Shelden Williams mad? You've been trying to match people up all night."

Lavin should go up to Boeheim and tell him he 'overachieved' and 'out-punted his coverage' to his face. It worked for Jim Rome...

Disasterious = 1/2 disastrous, 1/2 mysterious?

Didn't Lavin out-punt his coverage by coaching for more than a year as an emergency scrub and then parlaying that into a broadcasting career?

Just sayin'...

Maybe he meant to say "Those" are impressive

I love Lavin. This uncomfortableness is what really makes these broadcasts.

All of that hair gel he uses has probably seeped through his skin and corroded his brain.

That's the kind of woman you can get when you hang out with Belmont's #1 fan, Vince Gill.

...and it continues for Lavin from yesterday: "Look at the George Michael from WHAM!"

Geez, the guy was commenting him on having a great looking wife. Not awkward at all.

How fucking stupid is it to not be able to grasp that? Sorry, it ain't news.

I agree with the above poster.

The "That" doesn't refer to the wife.

it's hilarious at the end when Nessler goes, "yeah, something like that." Lavin cracks me up
