Due to the obligations of our paying job, we didn't get to stay up and watch the live broadcast of Monday night's BCS Championship game in which Alabama manhandled Notre Dame.
But we did watch the highlights and the 3:30 a.m rebroadcast.
And perhaps the highlight--or at least the most talked about part of the game: ESPN/ABC 70-plus year old play-by-play guy Brent Musburger's unabashed gushing over Alabama QB A.J McCarron's girlfriend Kattherine Webb.
Webb, an Auburn grad sporting an Alabama McCarron jersey, was shown during the 1st quarter of the game, after the Tide had taken a 14-0 lead. And that is where Brent began drooling...we mean fawning...over Ms. Webb.
And yeah, sure, while it was a bit on the creepy side, it was hardly as offensive as it was made out to be. It's just sad that while the Tide was winning their 3rd BCS title in the past 4-years all the attention has been put on that.....and the endless idiotic rumor coach Nick Saban "might" bolt for the NFL (not happening).
