Video: Versus announcer calls Red Wings player "Hitler"

Chalk this up to an unfortunate slip of the tongue, but during last night’s Coyotes-Red Wings game Versus announcer Brian Engblom called Detroit’s Jiri Hudler “Hitler,” then quickly corrected himself. Eerily enough, yesterday would have been Adolf Hitler‘s 122th birthday.

Chris Russo: “Let me just ask you this on this whole thing with Desmond Howard. Everybody is paying attention to it.

America Likes Bad Football Over Great Baseball

Major League Baseball, you have a problem.

Last night’s Monday Night Football game featuring two backup quarterbacks in Kerry Collins and Trent Edwards drew a 7.2 over night rating, which was higher (6.5) than Game Three of the American League Champion Series.

Move over, baseball. Football is officially king in the United States.
