Veteran play by play announcer Brent Musberger had an in-your-face to those who created the faux controversy over his complimentary observations about Miss Alabama Katherine Webb during the BCS football game last week.
During the routine sign off to a hoop game, Brent gave what had to be a tongue in cheek compliment to one of his broadcast partners for the game.
"Once again, your final score, Kansas 61, Baylor 44," Musburger said in the manner he has hundreds of times before. "Coming up next, SportsCenter. For Fran Franschilla and Holly Rowe, who was really smokin' tonight, I want to say 'so long from Lawrence.'"
Critics had forced ESPN to offer an apology last week even though no one involved was offended. The 40 something Ms. Rowe was surely in on the gag.
