NOW, WE KNOW people aren't perfect.
But when a sideline reporter is being paid to be near-perfect and a mistake happens, sometimes those blunders provide snippets of sophomoric humor.
Meet veteran Knicks sideline reporter Al Trautwig. Before New York's 89-80 win over Milwaukee Monday night, Trautwig noted that the Knicks would be without forward Amare Stoudamire due to a bulging disk in his lower back. Except Trautwig substituted a "c" where an "s" should have been.
Trautwig quickly caught himself and noted that Stoudamire is indeed out indefinitely with a "bulging disk that will be treated non-surgically," but the damage was already done with the footage making the rounds on YouTube and within the blogosphere.
