Here’s a look at a clip from the laugher of an Orange Bowl last night between West Virginia and Clemson, with ESPN NFL commentator Jon Gruden confusing First Lady Michelle Obama with ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters. I know they look a little bit alike, but does Gruden really think that Clemson would use Lisa Salters on one of their play cards? Just a little obscure there, even if Salters has been with ESPN since 2000 and Michelle Obama has only been First Lady since January 2009.  Gruden’s broadcast partners Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski immediately erupt in laughter.  This exchange from the ESPN booth is almost as funny as Clemson’s defense last night…


West Virginia went on to win the Orange Bowl by the ridiculous score of 70-33 in what may turn out to be the lowest rated BCS Bowl game in history according to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal.  Which BCS Bowl gaffe is better, thinking Lisa Salters is Michelle Obama… or thinking West Virginia is still part of Virginia?
