Um, that's not Brian Westbrook

    Not to encourage such a thing, but sounds like a Howard Stern caller got live onto ESPN, pretending to be Brian Westbrook. Just trying to find a video clip. How can you not screen that call better?

    Awesome look on Van Pelt's face...

    Remember when Dan Patrick got duped on a similar prank call a few years back? I think that was one of Howard Stern's boys pulling that one off as well.

    One of these days, Stern's going to get a taste of his own medicine.

    Over 20 years ago Stern's fans started showing how easy it is to get past the switchboard at major television networks and say something juvenile....and they STILL haven't fixed it.

    Those of us who have been the victims on a college teleconference wholeheartedly agree with you.

    I believe that was a fake Steve Bartman, the day after. It was spectacular.

    SC takes itself way too seriously relative to the lowbrow slapstick they put on the air 13 hours a day every day. That's why I liked this one.

    I love that SVP took it all in stride. He could have flipped out, gone on a Buck-esque spiel on the immaturity of the thing, but he just took the punch and rolled with it.
    Yeah, it's not the most mature thing in the world, but give the SC guys some credit - they got burned bad and they didn't put the blame on anyone.

    I agree. I don't find this kind of stuff funny, but I did like SVP's reaction. It's better to take that kind of stuff in stride than make it worse.
