You just knew something like this was going to happen at some point. I missed the video, but thanks to multiple sleuths around the Internets we have the photographic evidence. Steve was doing a live commercial right before the 8am Sports Center when the camera panned to a dry erase board that displayed the lovely f-word in all its weirdly written glory....
I'm desperately searching for the video at the moment (damn me for recording Mike and Mike in the morning....what am I thinking?), but as soon as it's found I'll put it up. Too funny. Whoever wrote that must have been hella bored and for Steve's sake, I hope that number isn't his ATM pin. According to Deadspin, ESPN has acknowledged the situation and apparently isn't happy. I'm thinking that they're going to get a ton of press online from this today, so it's not as bad as they think.
Also, this would be a good time to remind you that I'll have a running live-blog of the SC Live debut this Monday starting at 9am. There also might be a few surprises earlier than that as well, so it should be extra fun.
