What will ESPN do tonight?

ESPN greatly surpassed my expectations of homerism last night. No, it wasn't the worn out small-ball storyline. Nor was it the "mighty" bats of LSU.

It was the wardrobe.

Yes, I'm a girl. But that wasn't why I noticed. Actually, my dear husband saw it first. We were watching around the third inning or so, and he says, "What the hell are those guys wearing??" I had to back up the tape to see ... all three ESPN commentators were wearing LSU purple. Unbelievable. I've never seen such a thing ... you'd think that the wardrobe folks would have made sure something like that wouldn't happen.  I can NEVER remember a sporting even where the entire on-camera crew wore the colors of one of the teams that was playing.

So tonight, what will the homerism be? Will one announcer play with a stuffed tiger doll? Will the story line focus on LSU's invincibility during the playoffs? Will Orel find yet another way to talk down UT's pitching staff?

Personally, I'd like to see all three of them wearing tiger-stripe makeup on their faces and doing that "claw" thing.

Any better ideas we should pass along to the ESPN crew?
