Play-by-play legend Brent Musburger caused a bit of a stir during the BCS national championship game last week when he all but publicly professed his love for Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb. It was an odd yet probably ultimately harmless moment, given that Musburger is 73 years old, but ESPN still saw fit to issue a public apology in the wake of the fiasco. (Webb, meanwhile, landed a spot in the upcoming Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.) Musburger seems to be somewhere between peeved and bemused by the whole situation, if we’re to take his smart-aleck comment at the end of last night’s Kansas-Baylor game as any indication: as the broadcast wound down and Musburger thanked his colleagues, he noted that sideline reporter Holly Rowe had been “really smokin’ tonight.”
Brent, you salty old dog!
