Freudian slip? No joke. CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins had the most unfortunate of on-screen slipups Tuesday night while reporting about the Blackhawks. Collins, channeling the fervor of the Stanley Cup playoffs beginning, jumped into her inside scoop on the hometown team — and then uttered a phrase that hockey fans likely found far more interesting. Collins was trying to explain that the Blackhawks are treating the playoffs as a whole new season, leaving behind their points streak and 36-7-5 record. Her lead-in, however, suggested that the Hawks have been doing more than playing hockey this season. “Despite the fact that they’ve had such a tremendous amount of sex during the regular season,” Collins began. Like a pro, she realized her mistake and went back and said “success” instead, but the damage was done. Collins’ mistake will live on, as she’s chosen a profession that broadcasts every tongue-tie to the world (as opposed to this medium, where the backspace key can quickly take care of any ill-formed jokes that this situation so easily offers). Kudos to her for being a champ and staying on the job, and here’s hoping for better — spell it now, s-u-c-c-e-s-s — in the next round. Check out Collins’ gaffe in the video below, complete with a loud guffaw from the viewer. Photo of the Day No, it’s not giveaway night in Arizona. Cody Ross has just lost control of his bat. Tweet of the Day With D.C quickly running out of controversial things to talk about, the Nationals are fighting over whether they’d like their fans to do the wave. Bryce Harper jumps in. Nats fans keep doing the wave, it's a beautiful thing! Keep the wave in Nats park! #baseball #keepthewave— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 30, 2013 JW just said "Nothing cooler than seeing a packed house do the wave" #Nats— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 30, 2013 Video of the Day Overtime! Goal! It’s Stanley Cup playoffs time, folks.
