Thanks to the Sports Media Watch Blog which got it from the Awful Announcing blog, this almost became the Video of the Week. For some strange unknown reason, ESPN’s Mike Patrick decided to bring up Britney Spears during the overtime of the tense Georgia-Alabama game. I’ll say it again, during the overtime of the tense Georgia-Alabama game.
Listen to Patrick as he brings up Britney and how analyst Todd Blackledge responds rather incredulously. On the next snap, UGA wins the game. I mean, how can you go from the game to Britney? Where was the transition? And what was Mike thinking?
It’s a great video. Rather strange as well.
