Scandal! ESPN just aired its Best Of First Take clip show, which included a particularly fart-y piece of footage from this morning's edition of First Take, and where there was once a fart, there is a fart no more!

We were hesitant to unequivocally attribute the noise that popped up on this morning's episode to someone's (Skip Bayless's) flatulence, but now I think we can safely assume that the noise was indeed a fart. What other reason would ESPN have to edit it out of the re-aired segment? And it's not like the producers just dropped the sound altogether. They specifically isolated the fart noise and eliminated it. This is a cover-up!

RIP, First Take fart.
