She’s not the first to do this.
Covering Dallas Cowboys training camp on Wednesday, NFL Network reporter Jane Slater had a painful on-air slip-up.
Slater was discussing Cowboys offensive tackle Tyron Smith’s back issues from 2016, when she let fly that he had been suffering from a “bulging dick.”
Of course, Slater meant disc. Here is the video of her mishap.
Slater shook off the error and finished her report like a pro.
Again, Slater isn’t the first broadcaster or reporter to do this. ESPN’s Steve Levy, the Patient Zero of the “bulging dick” mistake, did so in 1995. MSG’s Al Trautwig and ESPN’s Andy Katz have also been guilty of the faux pas.
Give Slater credit, she had some fun at her own expense on Twitter.
Live tv is the greatest. You know what I meant 🤷🏼♀️

All in all, no harm, no foul.
