Is Brent Musburger Still Drooling?

Drooling on the air is not something you see every day.

During last night's Alabama romp over Notre Dame in the BCS Championship game, Brent Musburger just couldn't get enough of Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron.



Television broadcasters should most always talk about what is on the screen, what the viewer can see.  In this case, viewers were clearly seeing the current Miss Alabama, and hearing Musburger's undeniable opinion of her.

My take - if he were 33 instead of 73, we wouldn't even be talking about it today.  The Twitter timelines would have blown up temporarily, and it would be over.  The story today seems more about the context, rather than the comments.


Did he go a bit too far, perhaps.  Probably.  However, sports fans usually relate to a broadcaster who expresses what they are also thinking.

What were YOU thinking as Musburger was voicing his opinions?
