Old man invades press conference, asks about “sexy” Erin Andrews

Pin it

Erin Andrews

Sports reporter Erin Andrews is only just now getting past all the drama of last year. Andrews was the subject of a nude-video leak that briefly burned up the web until it was revealed that a creepy guy had filmed it through a hole in his hotel-room wall. That asshole pled guilty and Andrews probably thought she'd put the whole incident behind her… until now.

Les Miles, who coaches the LSU football team, is a pumped up, friendly guy, especially when his team wins. So, he was feeling generous the other day when eighty-six-year-old (retired) sportswriter Ted Castillo called out with a question. Most retirees don't get access to sports figures like Miles, but Castillo was a longtime freelancer for the Baton Rouge Advocate and so he and Miles go way back (I'm guessing).

Castillo: What is it like to be, and you can take the Fifth on this, but what is it like to be interviewed by a sweet, young thang like Erin Andrews?

[laughter]

Miles: If they had given that job to some old, big, ugly man, it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. But what a joy it is to represent LSU in the postgame with victory and to celebrate victory in a postgame interview with a very talented, very attractive woman.

Castillo: You know they nabbed the guy who was filming her through the keyhole.

Miles: I’m not going to go there, Ted.

Castillo: What I’d like to know is how that guy pulled that off. Because I’ve been peeping through keyholes for years and I’ve yet to see anything but a blank wall.

Miles: Ted, damn if I’m not impressed with your candor. I’m with ya.

Is this for real? I'm sorry to say there is — and there's video (see below). Just because we have greater equality in the workforce doesn't mean we have made any advancements in the locker room… or so it seems.
