UNC Fan In Primo Seats Lifts Jersey To Display "Fuck Duke" T-Shirt

This is no usual videobomb. No, this Tar Heels fan came prepared, with a "Fuck Duke" shirt on just for that one moment when he'd be on display behind Marv Albert and Steve Kerr. Fine job, gent. » 3/21/14 9:12pm 3/21/14 9:12pm

We're surprised this doesn't happen more often, and maybe it does—but hearing popular NFL referee Ed Hochuli do it has a special flair.

This aired as the lead-in to the third quarter on tonight's broadcast of Heat-Bulls. I suppose the game is in Miami, and perhaps that is what people do down there, but it still seems a little uncouth. (And the network cut in with a clipped Marv Albert voiceover, so this was probably inadvertent.) » 5/24/11 11:05pm 5/24/11 11:05pm

Media Approval Ratings: Marv Albert

Whatever your thoughts on Marv Albert, it's rather impossible to deny that he is resilient. Honestly, it was only 11 years ago when those whole biting charges came around. We really thought he was done. Toast. Over. We mean, look at the Wikipedia wrapup. » 5/27/08 1:05pm 5/27/08 1:05pm
