Christine Nubla: "Double Penetration"2 of 16
Fox Sports West reporter Christine Nubla is attempting to report that the Clippers want to stop the "dribble penetration" at halftime of the Clips 107-89 win over Portland in April of 2007. However, luckily for sports nation, it doesn't come out right for Ms. Nubla.
Brian Collins: "Boom Goes the Dynamite"3 of 16

Jim: "Wish you continued good sex."4 of 16
Jim, the sideline reporter, is attempting to wish Seton Hall head coach Bobby Gonzalez continued SUCCESS in the Big East for the remainder of the season. It doesn't really come out right. However, Jim goes back to the well a second time and still can't get the coitus out of his wrap-up.
Scott Roberts: You Are on the Air5 of 16
The "more personalities than my ex-girlfriend" comment aside, this ABC 25 sportscaster from Daytona International Speedway is clearly not ready for his report. Beuller? Beuller?

Dan Marino Freaks Out7 of 16
While breaking down a conversation he had with Terrell Buckley, Dan Marino slips-up and then takes out his aggression on the table. The best YouTube comment comes from user RRRPRRR, "That would have hurt Marino a lot more if he had a ring."
Lee Corso Drops an F-Bomb8 of 16
The wires are clearly not connected correctly to Rocket's mic, however, the cords are most definitely still working on Lee Corso's - and he let's one serious F-Bomb fly. ATTENTION: If bad language offends you, please skip this slide.

This poor fellow is attempting to follow a Detroit-Cleveland NBA highlight to no avail. He is utterly lost and he knows it.
Wichita Sports Director F-Bomb10 of 16

ESPN" "That's Kinda Gay."13 of 16
During a Northern Illinois-Iowa report about how to catch a football, one ESPN broadcaster does go maybe too in-depth on how he teaches his kids to catch football. And the play-by-play man doesn't like it one bit.
Texas Tech Bell Ringer14 of 16
This is not a slip-up by any of the on-air talent, but clearly the technical director should not have taken camera 2.
