Hey there's nothing like a good sex scandal to increase your ratings, just ask David Letterman!

And tonight he was fired by ESPN...

http://www.newsday.c...-espn-1.1548306

"Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN," the network said in a statement.

"His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways."



Phillips' representative, Steve Lefkowitz, last night issued a statement saying Phillips "is voluntarily admitting himself to an in-patient treatment facility to address his personal issues."


Must be a clinic for sex addiction or something...

Sex-addiction rehab is highly overrated, or so I hear. :grin:

And now "the other woman" has been fired from ESPN

http://www.suntimes....ired-26.article

BRISTOL, Conn.—The ESPN production assistant whose affair with baseball analyst Steve Phillips led to his termination has also been fired from the sports network, a spokesman said Monday. Mike Soltys, a representative of ESPN, said Monday that 22-year-old Brooke Hundley had been fired, but he did not say when or why.

Not so much really, after all lets be honest it's a pretty common slang phrase for such things already. But I suppose the fact that it was personnel at a sports network that were doin' the boinkin' does at the very least make it an appropriate use of such slang. ;)

If we're going "there"... I'm surprised nobody yet has said...

He scores! But, wait... there was a penalty on the play.

He too was supposedly propositioning women at ESPN... and more than one rumor had Salisbury taking pictures of "himself" and showing them to co-workers... Note that "himself" is in quotes for a reason. :eek2:
