When you write multiple articles a day for a sports blog, there's an easy temptation to use a lot of hyperbole and hype.  Every clip has to be either the funniest or the most shocking or the most surprising.  Every moment or soundbyte or screengrab has to be the best or worst EVER so people will be motivated to click and share.  Sometimes you may even be tempted into using all caps in a headline to convey some kind of extra interest.  It's some kind of game within the game within the game for sports bloggers to stir up interest in the slow drip of content pushed out ever day. Having said that, what you are about to see is by far THE BEST AND FUNNIEST AND MOST AWESOME MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF ESPN AND MAYBE EVEN TELECOMMUNICATION. I give you, the many faces of Bob Ley... Why in the world OTL would randomly cut to Bob Ley in the studio during a taped interview and why Ley would simulatenously be on an acid trip are questions we may never have the answers to.  But Ley's faces once he realizes he's on camera are equally as good.  It's also the only time I've ever seen him stumble over a word on camera... Bob Ley is a legend at ESPN for good reason.  He's been there forever and remains their most respected journalist and anchor.  And at least he knows not to swear when the mic is hot, just make goofy faces. It's clear this clip should only cement his legacy.  Seriously, this is the greatest thing ever.... for real.
