Katherine Webb Was More Interesting Than The BCS National Championship Game

010813-BCS-Katherine-Webb-600

As you may know by now Katherine Webb is the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. During Monday night’s BCS National Championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame ESPN’s Brent Musburger had some pretty kind words for Webb, and Auburn graduate and the current Miss Alabama.

“Wow, I’m telling you. You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women,” Musburger said to Kirk Herbstreit, his fellow announcer and former Ohio State quarterback. “So, if you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting a football out and throw it around the backyard with Pops! What a beautiful woman. Wow.”

Unsurprisingly some people decided to get offended by this light banter, calling Musberger “creepy.” Ms. Webb was not among those, reportedly saying of Musberger, “It was kind of nice. I didn’t look at it as creepy at all. For a woman to be called beautiful, I don’t see how that’s an issue.”

I think people are missing the point here. The real culprit here is Notre Dame. Musberger started having to “fill” right around the time the first isolation shot of Webb came on-screen. By then it was obvious to all tuned in (except maybe die-hard Notre Dame fans) that we were in for a real snooze-fest for this national championship game, as the final score of 42-14 proved.

    Well, she IS a beautiful woman, though she desperately needs to eat a sandwich.

    However, it’s unseemly for a sports program to, on behalf of millions of fans, oogle a woman.

      Indeed. I wouldn’t go so far as to say “creepy,” but “unseemly” seems the right fit.

    Reality show on the way?

    Reminds me of the time in the 50′s when Dizzy Dean was doing the Baseball Game of the Week. The director kept switching to a couple in the ballpark that were kissing vigorously and passionately. After about three cuts to the couple, Dizzy said, “I think I have it figured out what they are doing, there. He’s kissing her on the strikes and she’s kissing him on the balls.” The screen then went black for while.

    There is nothing wrong with making a remark on how beautiful a woman is. Musberger didn’t say anything offensive and if saying, “What a beautiful woman” now qualifies as being creepy then this country has a major problem. Just because a man looks at a woman and thinks she is beautiful does not mean that we must read sexual overtures into his statement.

    If there is any problem then is is with the intolerant left which is filled with butt ugly women who are offended at being reminded of the fact that they don’t measure up. You’d think that since they are constantly going on about self-esteem that they would have some themselves and be ok with the fact that some people do look better than they do. Obviously they don’t.

      Oh, should we welcome herrdog505 over to the liberal side now?

      Geez jim you just can’t let your venom go by can you?

      By the way I have loads of self-esteem and ego strength.

        I didn’t realize you were a woman.

      You’re right. They hate her out of jealousy, and they hate Brent because it’s true.
