Everett could be heard saying “son of a bitch,” and “god dang it.”
After the show returned from commercial, he apologized for his language.
“My mic was open. I know better than that. I’ve been doing this long enough, and I apologize to all those who had to hear that,” he said, clearly disappointed with himself.
Nobody will hold it against Everett. He is an excellent broadcaster and, along with Stan Verrett, he forms the best SportsCenter anchor team. Let this be another lesson to current and aspiring broadcasters to never say something you shouldn’t as long as a microphone is around, because you never know when it might be on.
