2. On Tuesday, ESPN SportsCenter aired a segment that focused not on Sam’s football prowess – but his shower habits.
3. ESPN has since issued an apology for the cringe-worthy reporting.
5. The segment cuts to correspondent Samantha Bee, and she reports that, “In fact, he hasn’t been getting naked around them at all.”
