Fox's Daytona 500 prerace show featured Erin Andrews in her "Fox signed me to this huge contract and I need to randomly show up at our biggest sporting events" role by... randomly walking down pit road with absolutely no purpose whatsoever. Andrews wandered down pit road strangely in awe of the entire scene, awkwardly bumping into Kevin Harvick, and then... hey look, it's 50 Cent! And in the strangest/most uncomfortable sidline reporting moment since Joe Namath wanted to kiss Suzy Kolber, 50 Cent went in for the liplock and Erin Andrews blocked his advance like Dikembe Mutombo. Truly a great moment in Fox Sports history.
And here's the video version...

@davebiddle @BeauBishop yeah, he must have thought she was Chelsea Handler!! Erin wanted no part of that!!
This was painful to watch. She looked like an idiot. Only to be rivaled by Kristen Chenowith at the Oscars.
I think it is very rude and absurd to think that Erin Andrews snubbed 50 Cent....rather it should be understood that his attempt to kiss her was rude and overbearing on his part. Where does it say that Erin or anyother female (or male reporter) must allow themselves to be kissed or grouped or ogled by any other person regardless of their celebrity status. Maybe he a seious case of alchol breath or worse....one thing is certain, he made no bones about oggling her ass as she turned to walk away!
Does that mean that Erin Andrews will also be doing some Sideline reporing for FOX's coverge of the Men 'sand Women's FIFA World Cup in June and July starting in 2015 too than???
I am suprised however that they are only using her as a Sideline reporter for their coverage of 1 College Basketball game nationally televised on FSN this year too!
I was really disappointed. I watch the race because "it's cool to see all the celebrities" that attend.
And she didn't deliver. What a shock.
@awfulannouncing Best part was Fitty waiting for Erin to start walking toward the cars so he could sneak a peek at her rear bumper...
@awfulannouncing I love the Mutombo reference. Now I want to hear EA say "Not in ma' house" in a heavily African-sounding accent.
@dopez24 @jdink03 dear fox- next time wait until EA has found the person of interest before cutting live to her!

At least Andrews had a reason for being there. What was no-talent ghetto scumbag 50 Cent doing at a NASCAR event in the first place?
@Chuck_Tonini @awfulannouncing @bubbaprog He definitely was not smooth but instead WAS on something. Had that 'just drank some gin' look.
@Nmarchetta @awfulannouncing You have to credit her for the recognize and turn away defense #pitrowawareness
