ESPN Airs A Visible F-Bomb During Steve's Live Sports Center Spot Today

Thursday, August 07, 2008

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.

Like you always say AA, any press is good press.

Why would you start the live blog at 6am, when the live SportsCenters don't start until 9?

Because I had a mental lapse and momentarily forgot they canceled the 6-9am block.

You caught me AAHE! Bravo my friend....I'm actually proud of you. Would you like a free Friend of Bob T-Shirt?

I'm also now pretty sure you work at ESPN if you pulled that info out the air so fast. My guess is that you're just an intern, but I hope I'm wrong.

I work for ESPN? Nope. Wrong again, aa. I'm just someone who remembers your post--from less than a month ago--when you wondered what would happen to Linda Cohn. My memory's not great. But it can go back a couple of weeks.

Touche...I'll concede the point. What's the score now, 15-1?

Yeah, AA. Saying 'hella' is 'weak sauce.'
