Devastated Anchor Drinks On-Air After Capitals Bow Out of Playoffs
The Washington Capitals' loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference semifinals crushed more than just their fans.
Michael Jenkins, an anchor for Comcast SportsNet based in Bethesda, Mary., couldn't hold back his disappointment after the Caps capped off another disappointing postseason run by losing to the rival Penguins in six games. He decided to drink during his broadcast before showing the highlights of the sixth game.
After he was back on camera, Jenkins decided to drop some truths on the viewing audience:
Got a message for all you kids out there. Everyone says, 'Oh, you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it (laughs). It's a whole big lie. The Caps were supposed to win it all this season. They put their mind to it. Look what happened. Crushing disappointment, that's all. Give up on your dreams."
Wow, when is his motivational tour coming to town? You're going to want to get tickets in advance.
Go ahead and tsk tsk Jenkins' unconventional methods all you want, but just remember that he has won six Emmys with CSN.
