During March Madness, a lot of broadcasters do some double dipping — especially with the new, brilliant coverage schedule. Guys like Charles Barkley have strayed away from their normal duties to cover college basketball. This is not the case for Greg Gumbel, who has worked for CBS and covered professional football and college basketball since 1988. That didn’t stop him from having a brain fart on Sunday and calling his employer of 20-plus years ESPN. Check out the Greg Gumbel ESPN screw-up video, courtesy of Mocksession:
Tisk, tisk. Had Gumbel said something like, “we bring you more NFL action after this,” it would have been excusable. Reverting to his Sportscenter anchor days was completely random. If not for YouTube and sports blogs, he probably would have gotten away with it. Glad we could help.
