Hey, there, little lady…3 January 2011

Well, color me embarrassed. After singing the praises of Ron Franklin’s impeccable football commentary during the Chick-fil-a (aka PEACH) Bowl, this story came to light. Who knows what prompted this or the circumstances behind it, but it looks like Ron will be looking for other employment soon, if the past is prologue.  http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/espn-broadcaster-ron-franklin-pulled-from-air-after-calling-colleague-sweetcakes-a-hole-ncxdc-010311

But then I got to thinking (I do that from time to time), I wonder if this was the first time something like this has happened with Franklin (where’s there’s smoke … ) and found this:

As they say, he will be missed.
P.S. In case you didn’t catch this little gem, this is the best attempt at the Gatorade shower ever.  TCU’s coach stops his players in their tracks:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHG7jrQXiz4
