Someone On Sports Center Was A Little Bit Gassy This Morning

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

A few emails came in right around 10:30 this morning saying that either Josh Elliott or John Clayton ripped one during an NFL segment. Being your intrepid video reporter, and an expert of flatulence, I'm here to provide the clip and tell you that it certainly sounds like someone had too much broccoli last night. Listen closely around the :11 mark....



While it could be a mic mishap, I'm pretty sure that it wasn't. I'm putting my money on Clayton, but we should get a definitive word on it either way soon enough. Your thoughts and guesses in the comments.

Update: Via Deadspin....
ESPN's media relations machine "could not possibly comment about that", but Elliot did say that he asked the newsroom "What the F was that?" after the incident occurred, but denies having personally "dealt it."

That was totally a fart. I think it was Josh Elliott who ripped it since Clayton was on the phone and it wouldn't have been picked up as easily. That's my guess.

It seemed to me that Elliot had a facial reaction when it happened. It was probably him. What did your mom ever tell you about eating too many beans before you go on the air, Josh?

Had to have been Elliott. It sounded much too clear to have been from the phone line.

Usually when there's a stale fart on ESPN, Mike & Jaws give it two seconds of dead air and then keep describing the play.

Whoever smelt it dealt it, and Elliot was definitley smelling it.

You remember in Naked Gun when Lt. Drebin went to the bathroom during the Queen's presser. He forgot to turn off his microphone and you could he him taking a leak (one of the best scenes of this funny movie!). Maybe it was another guest or co-host who forgot to turn of their mic.

Could it have been a camera man? The look on Elliot's face was one who was smelling the fart...not someone who dealt it. He looked surprised.

I gotta say, that fart sounds kinda fake to me, too much like it was made with the mouth.

But the real question is "who smelt it"?
