(photo credit: Chicago Sun-Times) Susannah Collins, the sideline reporter who attained viral infamy due to her on-air slip-up on Tuesday when she uttered the now-famous Freudian slip about the Chicago Blackhawks having a “tremendous amount of sex” during the regular season instead of “tremendous amount of success,” has been fired by Comcast SportsNet Chicago, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times. A statement released by Comcast SportsNet Chicago claims that her on-air gaffe had nothing to do with Collins, who has been with Comcast SportsNet Chicago since 2012, suddenly being out of a job: “Due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night, Susannah Collins and Comcast SportsNet Chicago have parted ways. We appreciate everything Susannah has contributed to our network over the past year and wish her the best in her future endeavors.” Collins attempted to take the whirlwind created by her mistake during pregame coverage of Game 1 of the playoff series between the Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild, tweeting out jokes about the hilarious mistake. Video of the Freudian slip that set things in motion: Collins handled the epic mistake with dignity, aplomb and self-deprecating humor: Thanks for laughing along with me & my “tremendous” slip, guys. Who couldn’t use a good chuckle every now & then right?? #Whoops! — Susannah Collins (@susannahcollins) May 1, 2013 Oh my. I’ve picked up over 200 followers in the last 50 minutes. Ah, the power of deadspin… #youguysarequick — Susannah Collins (@susannahcollins) May 1, 2013 Don’t worry, I’ll do my best to avoid saying “Clutterbuck” tonight. Can’t have a other slip-up! #thatdidntgothewayiplanned — Susannah Collins (@susannahcollins) May 1, 2013 @ssaltess I LOVE my job. #LuckyGal — Susannah Collins (@susannahcollins) May 1, 2013 Obviously, her sense of humor about the whole thing did not save the job that she loved. No one will ever know for certain how much of a role Collins’ on-air miscue had in her dismissal, but as is often said: There is no such thing as bad publicity so no one should expect the lovely and talented young woman to be out of a job for too long.
