ESPN Inadvertently Invents Erin Andrews Buttcam

Come to think of it, staring at Erin Andrews’ hinder for an hour-and-a-half might be preferable to watching LSU-Arkansas in the College World Series. No, check that — is preferable. But why did ESPN have to tease us with only 20 seconds of the divine EA backside, and then swing its cameras back to the game? What kind of mind games are you playing, Norby?

Erin Andrews

Introducing the Erin Andrews ButtCam, unveiled, allegedly by mistake, during Monday’s CWS telecast. Like many of mankind’s great inventions, this indeed may have been discovered unintentionally. Although judging from this photo, maybe not.

From Clay Travis at FANHOUSE:

Monday during the College World Series game between Arkansas and LSU, ESPN2 had a bit of a snafu with their footage of America’s sideline princess. For 15-20 seconds the network, according to a viewer who e-mailed the screen grab on the right, switched to a camera angle that featured a, how shall we put this delicately, derrière shot of Ms. Andrews. Doubtless ESPN has an awful lot of cameras covering the on-field action, but this one … not so much.

The EA ButtCam would also greatly improve the Scripps National Spelling Bee, in my opinion.

Post Script: In a glorious effort in branding, Travis’ item at FANHOUSE was presented under the category of “Back Porch.” Let us hope it is the first of many reports.
