Alabama was beating up on Notre Dame the other night. It was as if the South Benders just got off the boat from Ireland, and thought that just because they won every fight in the pub they knew how to calm the Crimson Tide. But learned otherwise. With dispatch.
So, filling time as happens on TV during such routs, the cameras of the Entertainment Sports Programming Network — you know it as ESPN — found Bama QB AJ McCarron’s girlfriend in the stands.
Katherine Webb is a beautiful young woman. (I would have said “beautiful girl” but you know why I have chosen not to do so.) She’s a beauty contest winner. Which fact was handy for Musburger, whom I doubt knew it beforehand without being coached by his production crew.
So, the venerable sportscaster mentioned Ms. Webb’s beauty, and her laurels, saying out loud what every man watching the game was saying to themselves as men have been saying to themselves since Adam saw Eve across the garden, and exclaimed to himself, “Whoa, dude, she’s hot.”
Musburger had the further audacity to mention what every guy — other than lead singers in rock bands — knows to be true: You gotta be a football hero to get the beautiful gals. Which reality has been in place since, well, at least 1933.
Cue Ben Bernie & All The Lads.
I thought the faux brouhaha over that free throw in the U of L/ UK game was idiotic.
This takes the cake.
ESPN is apologizing. Musburger is being character assassinated as some dirty old man.
What a crock.
Facts. Katharine Webb is a gorgeous woman. She knows it, and wears it proudly. She’s involved with a high profile QB. Brent Musburger said so.
Big deal. Get over it.
