ESPN Randomly Cuts to Shot of Lisa Salters Cougar-Calling LeVeon Bell During SportsCenter (Video)
If you happened to be watching the opening segment of SportsCenter on ESPN after Monday Night Football last night, you were treated to one hell of a WTF moment. For some reason, somehow, as one of the SportsCenter desk jockeys was talking about the Miami-Florida basketball game, they randomly cut away to a split-second shot of sideline reporter Lisa Salters cougar-calling LeVeon Bell. And by “cougar-calling” I mean she was yelling “WOOOOO!” at him while making a squinty face that could be interpreted as “damn he is fine!”
Do I really think Lisa Salters, a respected sports journalist, was hollering at LeVeon Bell the way construction workers holler at attractive women walking down the street? Of course not. The guy had just rushed for a whopping 204 yards. It was the best running performance of the 2014 NFL season and the highlight of the 22-year-old’s football career. So Salters was probably just pumped up after interviewing him.
But it looks like she’s cougar-calling him. And it’s pretty hilarious.
Take a look:
Thank you, unknown ESPN production person who was responsible for that. It made my day.
