First they had to suspend Tony Kornheiser for what he said about Hannah Storm's wardrobe and now Howard Stern has pulled yet another fast one on the call screener at ESPN.
Tonight on Sportscenter, Scott Van Pelt thought he was getting an exclusive interview with recently released Brian Westbrook, which would have been a huge get....except it wasn't actually Brian Westbrook.
No it was Captain Janks from the Howard Stern show and after doing a Google search of Captain Janks, it turns out he is a pro at this.
The worst part about this is this isn't the first time that Sportscenter has been prank called by Howard Stern's people. The Stern show pranked Sportscenter with a call from "Steve Bartman" just days after his incident in Chicago:
I believe the saying "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me" is very apt for how well ESPN screens their calls.
