Robert Flores' Unfortunate Slip Up On Sports Center

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

Had a few people email me this afternoon about a verbal gaff on the behalf of Sports Center's Robert Flores in the 1 O'clock hour. I missed it at the time, but after going back, there it was. Listen closely as Flores tries to say, "176 punt return yards," but "176 punt retard" instead....



Man, you could just hear the regret in his voice right when that came out. Mistakes happen on live TV, and while that one is pretty unfortunate, hopefully Flores isn't given too much flak for it.

Seeing as "176 punt retard" doesn't make any sense at all and he corrected himself right away, I'm sure he'll be fine.

Meh. It's not an F-bomb. Flores is making progress from his days in Austin.

I don't think he'll get in too much trouble for "retarn"

In all fairness kicking to Bush the second time was retarded.

That is a whole lot of nothing. If he gets so much as spoken to by his boss it's too much action.

I heard "retarn".

Hopefully all the retarned people out there don't make too big a huff about it.

This is as much of a story as the Keith Olbermann "I can see Russia" comment.

Which is to say it isn't.
