Skip Bayless’ Mic Stopped Working On ‘First Take,’ And Everyone Threw A Party

Professional bloviator Skip Bayless was not allowed to bloviate for a full minute today on ESPN because his mic stopped working. If only this was a regular occurrence. Co-hosts Cari Champion and Stephen A. Smith had a field day while Skip was mute.

Cari Champion: “I don’t necessarily know if Skip Bayless can hear us. He’s focused on his notes. Look, he has no idea.”
Stephen A. Smith: “Well listen, Cari. That’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. If he can’t hear us then we get to do this without listening to him.”

They’re only half joking, I think.
