I smell lawsuit…

So I’m watching the Fort Worth Bowl, which this year matches my former employer, the University of Houston (Go Coogs!), against the University of Kansas. ESPN has sent their D team to provide commentary — before tonight, I had never heard of either person in the broadcast booth.

Midway through the first quarter, one of the broadcasters notes that a Kansas player is wearing a different number jersey than usual and says that the official reason is that the player reported the jersey as stolen. The broadcaster then accuses the player of having stolen the jersey himself, as an “early Christmas present”. On national television he says this! And he was serious!

Wow. I would hate to be the person at ESPN who has to field the phone calls from that player’s relatives.
