ESPN Apologizes for Brent Musburger’s Comments About Miss Alabama

Last night at the BCS championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame veteran announcer Brent Musbarger was very impressed with Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb, a statuesque Auburn alum and Miss Alabama.

“You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!”

The video went viral.

This afternoon ESPN apologized for the outburst.

On Tuesday, ESPN responded to the commentary:

“We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”

    Have to agree with Musberger, though.

    Men are not allowed to comment on the beauty of a woman anymore because her ugly feminist stepsisters get jealous and those hags have worked very hard over the years to shut men up.

  • Joe Blow

    #4 you are exactly right.

  • Mad Hatter

    I’m still trying to figure out what Brent said that warranted an apology.

    Has CNN apologized for Kathy Griffin giving Andy Cooper a kiss in the crotch while on the air?
    (I bet he closed his eyes and fantasized that it was Chrissy Matthews)

  • Mad Hatter

    Buy the way, she is a beauty.

    By* oops

    imagine complementing someone, what a horrible thing to do.

  • Winston Wolfe

    I was listening at the time – and while I agreed with Brent – it was inappropriate.

    I cringed when he was saying it.

  • Sasja

    Inappropriate in this day and age thanks to the neutering of our male population by the skanks on the left. Why, when I was a young lass, not hearing a few whistles from the boys would have been troubling.

  • JDR-Taq

    Sasja @ #4 wins the thread.

    😀

  • Sasja

    Thanks JDR. Now, this is what the boys should be doing. Admiring the scenery.

    Political correctness run amok. Is what he said truthful? Did he hurt or insult anyone he was talking about? Did he use any vulgar terms? Come on for crying out loud—-
    With the MSM and leftist, people are going to be afraid to say anything for fear of hurting feelings. This is the world you want to live in??

    Remember it’s Brent Mushburger. Probably hasn’t had any action since the Reagan adminstration. But she is screaming hot!

  • Joe Biden

    She could sit on my face!!!

  • John03

    Well he had to talk about something. The game was a total bust!

    I don’t believe an apology was necessary and women wish they looked like her. Seriously, there are times when an apology is warranted but this isn’t one of those time. And Miss Alabama was good with it, she was flattered by his comments.

    What have we become where apologies to other nations doesn’t get this much attention.

    Apologies must be sincere and from the heart. You can tell when someone is forced or when it is a good thing and time.

    I suppose that Sports networks are so in fear of being sued and that is another much to often done these days. Suing for everything and apologies that are so insincere.

    In Mr. Musburgers heart he probably was just expressing his thoughts but really was he hurting anyone. Fear of a lawsuit. What times we live in when you can’t say what you feel and mean what you say without others jumping down your throat.
