Adam Schefter Takes Call During ‘SportsCenter,’ Because Of Course He Did


For most people, being on your phone at work is a big no-no.

But Adam Schefter, the greatest reporter to ever walk the Earth, apparently plays by his own set of rules.

During Thursday night’s “SportsCenter,” the ESPN NFL insider interrupted co-hosts Jamele Hill and Michael Smith to answer a phone call. The whole thing is painfully awkward, as everything comes to an abrupt stop so Schefter can talk to his source.

Watch the bizarre moment in the video below:

Classic Schefty.

What we don’t understand is why Schefter didn’t just relay the information on the air. He had to have known the information potentially was interesting when he saw the caller ID. Who knows, maybe he’s really planting the seeds for a huge story that’s right around the corner. Or maybe it’s just that some team’s third-down running back is dealing with a tight hamstring ahead of a pivotal Week 9 matchup.
