Last Saturday on ESPN's College Gameday live from Eugene, Oregon, Lee Corso called five year-old guest picker, Braden, a "midget." The best thing is that Braden correctly picked a few upsets that they all laughed about at the time! Not too shabby from a five year-old. He really seemed to know his stuff, especially if you watched the entire segment.
Calling a kid a midget in front of millions of viewers probably wasn't the most "politically correct" thing for Corso to say. But I'm sure it's being used as a term of endearment in this case and kind of funny (if you aren't offended by the word, I suppose). And let's all remember here people... it IS Lee Corso after all.
I saw it live and thought "uh oh". Then again, he is talking to a 5 year old, who is in fact a small (midget) person compared to adults. People need to lighten up.
That whole segment may have been the best pick segment on GameDay in years just for the comedy (unintentional and intentional).
