Brent Musburger may be 73 years old, but he’s not too old to recognize a hot young lady when he sees one. The ESPN announcer and his broadcasting partner, Kirk Herbstreit, absolutely drooled over Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, when the young lady was shown on TV late in the first quarter of the BCS National Championship Game. The two were also quite impressed with McCarron’s mother, Dee Dee Bonner.
Musburger didn’t offer up a line quite as memorable as his “1,500 red-blooded Americans just decided to apply to Florida State,” but the whole conversation was pretty funny.
“You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women,” mused Musburger. “So if you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football around and throwing it around the back yard.”
There actually is some precedent with Musburger reacting to attractive ladies in the stands. Remember the time he discovered Jenn Sterger and the Florida State cowgirls?
