Basketball Announcer Asks His Partner If He’s "Been Ridden" Before, Hilarity Ensues

Bill Raftery’s got onions.

Last night during Notre Dame’s victory over Pittsburgh, veteran commentator/dirty old man Bill Raftery (the man famous for his “ONIONS” catchphrase) took the broadcast to a very awkward and sexual place.

Notre Dame’s Jerion Grant was the “hot player” throughout the second half after a cold first half, and as Raftery notes, teams have to ride the hot player. That’s all pretty normal banter. Then…

That was Bill Raftery asking Jay Bilas — on national, live television — if he’s “ever been ridden.” And Raftery definitely knew exactly what he was doing there.

There isn’t video evidence, but I imagine Bill Raftery was pushing his chin out and silently mouthing “giggity giggity.”

Play-by-play man Sean McDonough pretends we’re watching a replay of the 1974 NBA Finals on ESPN Classic and moves our broadcast forward due to time constraints. Good save, Sean!
