On Tuesday morning, commentary on the broadcast of the Bowl Championship Series national title game between Alabama and Notre Dame included words like creepy, awkward, uncomfortable and heteronormative.
The subject was not Alabamas 42-14 victory, but comments made during the game by the ESPN play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger regarding the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A J McCarron. In the first quarter, ESPN showed McCarrons girlfriend, Katherine Webb, who was sitting near his parents.

2x post? Blame the system, not me.
Some people just can’t handle another person getting the attention they secretly covet for themselves.
From her looks in the picture she probably said, "Forget Twinkletoes Anderson and come do me!"
I think the game had become so boring he was trying to think of something to say! I didn’t think anything about it when he said it.
She’s still smokin’ hot.
Geez, then keep Bill Clinton from running the camera, zooming in on the dames. Brent didnt say anything non-metrosexuals weren’t already thinking.
He was only channeling my thoughts.
Sorry Brent, didn’t realize my power extended to Miami...
That’s how i felt when he spoke about her looks. He may not have meant it to come off the way it did, but I was very uncomfortable with it, and all I could think of was that I was glad that the young lady didn’t have to hear him say it...at least not live. She is beautiful, but I’d be surprised if beauty is her only redeeming quality.
No doubt a gorgeous woman. Wonderful eyes.
But with out those plastic grapefruits on her chest, would she have had a chance in the Miss Alabama pagent.
Watch 2 1/2 minutes of 2 1/2 men and it makes Musburger seem like a Puritan.
. . as uncomfortable as Kathy What’shername doing a naughty to that guy on tv?
Is it now politically incorrect to state that a person is attractive? What the hell is wrong with that? She was Miss Alabama, winner of a beauty contest.
A gorgeous woman too. Reminds me of a modern day Eva Gardner
Mee Oww. I saw some split ends too.
Does she know the difference between a touchdown and a touch back?
Is that the CSI NY chick?
LOL! Probably married some auto mechanic and had six kids, fat, moles everywhere.
The game was over by that point. It was a welcome addition to the coverage.
