ESPN ‘Goal Line’ anchor Chris Hassel meets his match in desk chair on live TV

SportsCenter anchor Chris Hassel made his debut on ESPNews’ Goal Line this week, and oh, what a debut it was. Hassel started his segment standing, but quickly realized the chair behind him was there for a reason, and decided to pop a squat while delivering the college football highlights from the early window.

Kirk Herbstreit rips ‘absolute fraud’ Taylor Lewan after late flag

It’s safe to assume Kirk Herbstreit isn’t a Taylor Lewan fan. During Sunday’s Titans-Raiders match with Tennessee storming up the field trailing 17-10, a potential 1st-and-goal play was negated after a flag was thrown against Lewan for unnecessary roughness. Instead of prime field position and a chance to tie the game, the Titans lost after […]
