ESPN Accidentally Airs Old Notre Dame Photo With Nude Man In Background (PIC + VID)
ESPN has been having a rough couple of months and it continued on Saturday.
The Worldwide Leader in Sports was running a segment during the Notre Dame-Boston College game. The network was simply trying to show an old vintage 1941 photo of Frank Leahy.
It was a nice blast from the past, until you realize there was a completely nude man standing with his dong out in the background.

ESPN quickly realized their mistake and released a statement apologizing for their mishap:
“An ESPN spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo Sports that the usage of the picture was accidental — in fairness, what’s behind the red dot isn’t the focal point of the picture — and the network apologized for its usage.”
