Ah, baseball season. CNN's Carol Costello is traveling to various Spring Training sites across Arizona and Florida, and things got a little weird at the end of this segment with Carlos Diaz. Diaz asked Costello how many hot dogs she can eat in a nine inning game, and Costello answered "I think I can pack away about 12".
Diaz's response? "I'm suddenly impressed, and I'm not going to lie, a little turned on". I'm not sure why exactly Diaz is turned on... because of Costello's "one of the boys" ability to eat copious amounts of meat in a short time period, or because of the obvious sexual connotation involved.
The b/r logo spinning over Diaz's shoulder adds a certain layer of irony to it all, as does the fact CNN still happily has the video up on their YouTube page.
@awfulannouncing Diaz like he was angling for a job writing for Seth McFarlane at the Oscars. #PervyLikeMusberger
I'll take it MT @awfulannouncing: See the CNN anchor turned on by his female counterpart's prodigious hot dog eating? http://t.co/myyicIbFUj
@awfulannouncing Does this mean we get a full journalistic standards Q&A from B/R's very own Manny Randhawa?
@awfulannouncing so she sounded and looked drunk and the look of pure fear on his face after realizing what he said was priceless
@awfulannouncing Does this mean we get a full journalistic standards Q&A from Manny Randhawa of B/R?
@awfulannouncing what makes even more hilarious and disturbing is the B/R logo spinning behind the guy
