orel_hershiser_espn_microphoneIf you look at the picture of Orel Hershiser on the right, you might think he's a pretty unimposing guy. However, the former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher is something of an Einstein when it comes to playing the game of baseball. Therefore, it makes perfect sense and is a brilliant move that he will be joining ESPN's 'Sunday Night Baseball' broadcast as an analyst.

Hershiser should have been put in the booth as soon as he was signed with ESPN, but all good things in their time. Now the former MVP, Cy Young award winner and World Series champ will be lending his expertise to the broadcast anchored by Jon Miller, the play by play guy, and former Cincinnati Reds star Joe Morgan as the lead analyst.

Brooke Hundley Interview on 'Good Morning America' (VIDEO)

Brooke Hundley, mistress of former ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips, had plenty to say to 'Good Morning America' about how the public's reaction to her affair with the married sports commentator has affected her, how she felt trapped in a relationship with Phillips, and how she feels toward Phillips' wife Marni.

"I think people are so quick to make a judgment," Hundley told Kate Snow of 'Good Morning America.' "It's almost like, 'Here's a great chance for me to destroy a person without ... thinking about the fact that there's a human being behind those words.' I've been called things by the public that no woman should ever be called."

Brooke Hundley said a Leno joke was her "breaking point"

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 12th 2009 2:30PM
Brooke Hundley -- the "tubby temptress" that had an affair with ESPN's Steve Phillips -- spoke to the media for the first time this morning, talking to Kate Snow on Good Morning America. It wasn't an extraordinary interview by any means; Hundley claims that actions the media has described as "stalking" were more like desperate attempts to alert people to what was going on between her and Phillips. You can believe what you want about that.

The most interesting part of the interview, shown below, is that after all the verbal abuse she took -- including being called the C-word and "whore" -- an innocuous Jay Leno joke about her looks was her "breaking point." The joke can be seen in the story: Jay compares Hundley to Phillips' wife and says "What was he thinking?" He then says, "I realize you can't have steak every day, but please..."

So, there you have it. Jay Leno broke the spirit of someone with his "biting" humor. Heck, I figured his lame jokes would have broken everyone's spirit years ago, but I guess some people can still get hurt by his butter knife jabs.
