Fresh off the presses — er, Twitter — comes news that ESPN felt it necessary to issue a brief statement addressing Brent Musburger’s excessively creepy horndoggery when commenting upon the attractiveness of Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron, during Monday’s broadcast of the BCS National Championship Game. ESPN’s full statement on the awkward event, courtesy of the reporting by Sports Business Journal Media Reporter, John Ourand, via his Twitter account: “We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.” I guess you could say that in an effort to provide interesting storylines, Brent Musburger went for “all the Tostitos,” came up empty and came off like a dirty old man. And if you somehow have missed it or just want to enjoy the awkwardness of it all once more, here you go: Hoo boy. Methinks that will never get old.
