Scott Van Pelt

How now brown cow. How now brown cow. The arsonist has oddly shaped feet. The human torch was denied a bank loan. Scott Van Pelt might want to use those warm-up phrases perfected by the great Ron Burgundy the next time he’s getting ready to go on air, because he made a pretty funny faux pas while discussing the Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.

See and hear it for yourself.


At least he caught it right away, though not surprisingly he couldn’t help but snicker a bit at his mistake. We sure did.

Also, the Chiefs are anything but, Mr. Van Pelt.
