Freudian slip? No joke.

CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins had an unfortunate on-screen slip-up 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.
