Analyst Matt Vasgersian made an awkward attempt to inject humor into the situation by remarking that one of the field workers resembled Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. Oops:
Last night, Vasgersian and the network took the gaffe in stride and made easy work of an apology that's generally getting a good reception from those who pay attention to these types of things.
What do you think? They definitely seemed to like it over at The Big Lead: "Apologies are often clunky and forced often; the delivery nervously strained. Wasn't the case here. This one seemed effortless, and the network didn't cut directly to commercial, as is sometimes the case in these situations."
