If you don’t enjoy the nostalgia of hearing the voice of Brent Musberger calling a college sporting event, then frankly you’re doing it wrong as a sports fan. Brent has been a legend in the game for over 40 years, but sometimes life leads you to greener pastures. We as an American public always knew how much Musburger loved Vegas, so this retirement venture isn’t a big shock.
Musburger will call his last game for ESPN on Jan. 31, a college basketball contest pitting Kentucky against Georgia. Musburger, who is 77 years old, plans to move to Las Vegas and help his family start a sports handicapping business.
Sweet, fucking God. Calling the Las Vegas Bowl every year and professing your love for the city is one thing, but going straight into sports betting in your late-70’s? Hell yeah Brent. Plus we know how much Musburger loves the ladies, so can’t think of a better place to retire to and creep on women at than Vegas.
Don’t let Brent’s recent outing as a Joe Mixon sympathizer think that it phased him either:
Both Musburger and ESPN say his recent Sugar Bowl comments criticized as being insensitive to a female assault victim had nothing to do with his exit.
Defending a convicted woman beater is like a 3 on the 1-10 Musburger foot-in-mouth scale, no way that’d be the thing to force him out. Just like our boys over at the Grandex podcast Back Door Cover, Brent just loves to gamble.
I may tune in on January 31st to hear him give it hell one last time. It’s the last game of your career, Brent, don’t hold anything back..
