When you’re an anchor or reporter, I think your sole mission in life is to not have a blooper feel or have something slip up go viral.
NFL Network’s Jane Slater had her moment yesterday. While giving an update on injured Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith, it happened. A bulging disk was in the docket, and when it came time to spew it out, that’s when it happened:

It’s one of those things you tried so hard to not mess up, but you know you’re going to do. In your mind you’re just saying to yourself over and over again, “don’t say dick, don’t say dick, don’t say dick”, but then here you are, dick comes out of your mouth. Wow, I’m not even going to erase that last sentence. That’s just what I’m talking about.
Scott Van Pelt, one of the few souls I like from ESPN, has this phrase down absolutely perfect, when someone has a bulging disk, this is how you handle it like a pro: bulging disssssssssk. That’s how it’s done.

Gotta give it to Jane though, she had a good laugh at it, good sport:
Live tv is the greatest. You know what I meant 🤷🏼♀️
