The Sr. Director of Communications and PR for ESPN told Breitbart Sports Tuesday morning that Mike Tirico's omission of the word "Redskins" was simply a flub, and not a political statement. "I talked to Mike last night, and he told me immediately it was just a mistake. He used the plural 'Giants' and then started to say 'Washington,' so he tried to make it plural (to get 'Washingtons.')," said Bill Hofheimer, who earlier in the year unveiled the futuristic SportsCenter set that will be used beginning in 2014 (see photo below).
