Cardinals analyst makes incredible ‘Ron Jeremy’ on-air flub
St. Louis Cardinals television analyst Al Hrabosky made quite the faux pas on Sunday’s postgame show.
Hrabosky and studio host Alexa Datt were discussing the outfit worn by Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas during the pitcher’s postgame interview following Sunday’s 6-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Mikolas wore sunglasses and a cowboy hat. Paired with the pitcher’s mustache, Mikolas looked strikingly similar to the Ron Burgundy character played by Will Ferrell in “Anchorman.”
Both Datt and Hrabosky made the connection and briefly discussed it. Unfortunately, Hrabosky wound up confusing Burgundy with disgraced porn star Ron Jeremy.
Cardinals analyst Al Hrabosky is the latest to confuse Ron Burgundy with Ron Jeremy.
"Who was it that wore the cowboy hat with Ron Jeremy?"

Hrabosky managed to correct himself, but it was far too late by that point.
To be fair, this is a forgivable mistake, and Hrabosky is hardly the first person to make it. Still, it’s something he’s unlikely to live down anytime soon.
