"Just two days after the Comcast SportsNet Chicago reporter (Susannah Collins)made an innocently hilarious flub on the air, the network chose to part ways with Collins.
Her flub may have even been perfectly accurate, it`s very possible the Blackhawks did have a "tremendous amount of sex during the regular season.` I would almost bet money they did. Phil Bedella, the Vice President and General Manager of CSN Chicago said in a statement that the network parting ways with Susannah was "due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night.`"
Collins immediately corrected herself after stating that the Blackhawks had "a tremendous amount of sex during the regular season", substituting the word she meant to say: Success.
We don`t expect perfection from any TV personality, especially those, like sportscasters, who frequently speak live.
The reporter made an innocent Freudian slip, and it was cowardly of Comcast to fire her. There`s a lot of excitement in the air at the Stanley Cup playoffs, who can blame Collins for her innocent and hilarious flub.
Collins` statement is probably true, everybody loves winners, and I`m sure that plenty of women were dying to have sex with the Blackhawk players.
I tell you somebody who`s not having a lot of sex: Comcast management. If they got laid every once in a while, they would have been more forgiving of Collins` mistake.
