Comments Meant to Be Off-Air Can Get One in Trouble (or simply be silly)

We often laugh a lot during commercial breaks, be it during our game broadcasts, or back when we were still doing “The Press Box”, or whatever.  I often said that a webcam could be quite funny.

Still, I would worry about not saying anything stupid while in break.  Yes, we know to treat any microphone as “hot” (meaning, it could be live) but still, sometimes foolish things are said.

That brings us to last night’s Orange Bowl between Virginia Tech and Stanford.  The game was a blowout.  You could watch the game live on ESPN or on the internet at ESPN3.  And, well, I’ll let Deadspin take over from here.
