Erin Andrews‘ job for the 2013 ALCS is, for the most part, to stand in front of a camera and chat with players or fellow broadcasters. There aren’t too many rules in place, but one major no-no is getting names wrong.
Apparently, that’s too much to ask.
Andrews had a rough Game 3 in Detroit, first calling Detroit skipper Jim Leyland “Joe Leyland” and, in a postgame interview with Mike Napoli, nearly calling Tigers ace Justin Verlander “Justin Bieber.”
See both gaffes below.
Andrews addressed both slip-ups on Twitter following the contest.
If u really think I have Bieber on my mind, then u are soooooo right #sarcasm—
