Jim Beglin had quite the reaction to an Ángel Di María red card.

The latest awkward on-broadcast sort-of-apology comes from CBS Sports’ coverage of the UEFA Champions League Manchester City-PSG semifinal Tuesday. That coverage, seen on CBS Sports Network and on Paramount+, saw commentator Jim Beglin say “It’s that Latino temperament” after PSG midfielder Ángel Di María was sent off in the 69th minute. Less than 10 minutes later, Beglin issued an awkward apology “for anybody that’s taken offense”:

At least that “apology” wasn’t interrupted by a drive into deep left field by Castellanos, but there are some similarities in its text to Thom Brennaman’s initial half-apology from last August, which came with the “If I have hurt anyone out there” disclaimer. Here’s that for comparison:

“If I have hurt anyone out there, I can’t tell you how much I say from the bottom of my heart that I am so very, very sorry. I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith, as there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos, that will be a home run,  and so that will make it a 4-0 ballgame.”

And people have already started making Brennaman jokes about Beglin:

We’ll see if this winds up leading to any consequences for Beglin.
