As Gameday was apparently coming out of a commercial break, a hot mic caught Lee Corso asking "Where's that little kid?" in something of an angry fashion. Making things infinitely more awkward was the Gameday cameras focused in on the Penn State huddle at the time. I'd have to imagine Corso thought he was off the air, but it's impossible to know the true context of what Corso was saying. However, the combination of the audio and the video was far from the best timing in the world...
Update: Here's the word on what happened from ESPN PR...
I thought it was incredibly disrespectful to Bob Brenly to have him do commentary on the first 4 games of the Cardinals/Phillies series only to bench him for Smoltz and his clown partner Darling for game 5. As a Cubs fan who gets to hear Brenly all year, I think he's the best in the business, certainly better than Ron Darling could ever hope to be.
@huskiemark Actually, Brenly stepped away on his own because his son's wedding was the next day. They talked about it at the end of game 4. So yeah, TBS didn't shove him aside; it was his decision.
For me, my main problem with not watching the baseball players was that they happened so FREQUENTLY, not only every day but SEVERAL games a day. I understand they're trying to get them in before it gets cold, but it was hard to keep up and despite the playoffs coinciding with me getting fired and just sitting around the house, it was still hard to find time to attempt to watch them all.
Couple of corrections:
It's David Wells in the studio, not Mitch Williams, who performs his awful announcing on MLB Network instead.
Also, when TBS goofed in the Tigers/Yankees game, they switched to Rays/Rangers, not Red Sox/Rays. The Red Sox didn't make it in this year. (yay!)
The team that eliminated the Rays was the MOTHER F***ING AL CHAMPION RANGERS, NOT THE RED SOX! #epicfail.
This is my opinion, but Dick Stockon wasn't too horrible. He at least showed some life during the game compared to any Joe Buck baseball game in the last 5 years. Also I would move the marketing campaign into ugly. That song is one of the worst, most annoying, pieces of garbage I've ever heard, and it needs to go! Finally, I disagree about John Smoltz being good as during the ALDS and NLCS as he was a total homer for the Tigers and Brewers. During game 6 on Sunday, every play by the Brewers seem amazing to him. That catch in foul territory in the 1st inning was apparently one of the most amazing plays he has seen in this series! A rob home run by the Cardinals, good catch...commercial break. During the ALDS he was just as bad. It seem like deep down he wanted the Yankees and Cardinals, who have beaten his precious Braves in the past, to lose.
