So somebody let one go on ESPN’s “First Take” yesterday:
Because I find him annoying, I will jump on the “it was Skip Bayless” bandwagon. Wait, I find Stephen A. Smith annoying as heck, too, maybe more annoying than Bayless (if that’s possible). So, I guess I don’t really care who baked the air biscuit. What I find hilarious is the fact that when ESPN re-aired “First Take” in the afternoon, they conspicuously edited out the trouser cough.
Deadspin has the re-aired video: http://deadspin.com/espn-edits-fart-noise-out-of-first-take-re-air-506864885
Really ESPN? We can’t just leave that alone? Let it be what it is? We have to pretend like we are too professional, too credible to allow a basic human function to soil our airwaves. That’s actually kind of sad. It makes me wonder what else they take care of in post-production.
